AMS Ocean Studies Collage

AMS Ocean Studies is an introductory college-level course developed by the American Meteorological Society for implementation at undergraduate institutions nationwide. The course places students in a dynamic and highly motivational educational environment where they investigate the role of the ocean in the Earth System by using real-world current environmental data.

The AMS Ocean Studies course package consists of a textbook, Investigations Manual, RealTime Ocean Portal (course website), and course management system-compatible files. Instructors can use these resources in combinations that make for an exciting learning experience for their students.

The course can be offered in traditional lecture/laboratory, completely online, and hybrid learning environments by experienced science faculty or those new to teaching oceanography. Collegial assistance from AMS staff and other course users is available to new instructors.

If you would like to use the entire AMS Ocean Studies course package, which includes the textbook, eInvestigations Manual, and access to the RealTime Ocean Portal and Faculty Websites, your college will need to have an active license on file with the AMS Education Program.
