So far as we know, Earth is the only planet in our Solar System that has liquid water on its surface. All life on Earth requires water to exist, and beyond that, water is an amazing substance that has many functions that make the Earth a special place. In this course, we will explore the oceans together, learning about their role in shaping the Earth’s climate and about their importance to life on Earth. We will look at some of the amazing creatures that can live at the extreme pressures of the ocean floor, and we’ll talk about the role humans play in influencing the good and ill health of the oceans.
What to Expect:
You will gain a deeper appreciation (pun intended) of the essential impact of these vast water reservoirs on our planet as well as our impact on the oceans.
Feedback from past courses with Pan:
“Extraordinary in every way! 10 stars! We should have Pam Conrad for future CF courses.”
“Dr. Conrad was very intriguing and such a good story teller. The multiple visuals were a definite asset. She took us, the participants, on several journeys and she left us with a challenge to keep up our own personal exploration.”
“What a GREAT program this was!!! I hope we can get “Pan” to come back and visit with us again in the future. Would be wonderful to meet her in person!”
