Description:Ocean sciences, or oceanography, is a field that encompasses the study of the global marine environment from broad geographic and disciplinary perspectives. It essentially looks at the interaction between marine life and oceanic processes, covering such diverse topics as coastal processes, deep-sea food webs, marine animal ecology, physiology and behaviour, plankton dynamics, the effects of pollution or climate change on ocean life and ecosystems, the management and conservation of aquatic resources, and much more.

The major in ocean sciences (environmental systems) is a formal stream of the major in ocean sciences, with a curriculum that blends foundation courses in earth and ocean sciences, with a focus on environmental issues. It is designed for students with special interest in geography (e.g. cartography, remote sensing), climate, natural resources and marine geology.
