    Hawaii Community College's Oceanography 201L–Introduction to Oceanography Lab is designed to give students experiential, hands-on learning on the ocean. Students attend lectures on different aspects of oceanography, from sea floor mapping to ocean chemistry to reef ecology, at UH Center at West Hawaii. They also conduct research on state-of-the-art oceanography vessels.

          Calcium carbonate is used by many marine organisms to build their shells and exoskeletons. However, changes in the ocean chemistry are changing the concentrations of crucial carbonate ions, making seawater more corrosive to these marine organisms. Upwelling off the Oregon coast is responsible for the rich fisheries and divers ecosystem found there – but also poises the system on the verge of hypoxia and dangerous levels of corrosiveness.
