AQS 262 - Aquarium System Design and Life Support and Lab


Prerequisites: None
Fulfills a Marine Biology elective in the Applied category
There is a strong and broad-based need from many education, research and commercial organizations for information on the planning, design, construction and operation of seawater systems. Unfortunately, an understanding of biology or engineering alone is not likely to result in a practical, working system design. Biologists generally do not understand the mechanical and hydraulic aspects of design, while engineers do not typically appreciated the biological considerations. This course is intended to provide the technical knowledge and practical experience that will enable students to design successful systems on a variety of scales. Lecture portion will focus on design issues, while laboratory will concentrate on water quality and toxicity as part of the need to provide life support to seawater systems.
