This course provides Corps of Engineers personnel with state-of-the-art knowledge and technology in marine and coastal ecology. Students are given an overview of the latest scientific and analytical techniques in the field of coast ecology and related sciences.

Through a series of lectures, practical field exercises, and field trips, students are introduced to the basic concepts of marine/estuarine ecology (including benthic ecosystems, fisheries, coastal marsh and seagrass ecology), sensitive resources, experimental design, and current marine ecological techniques. The role and importance of coastal ecosystems will be discussed. Temperate, subtropical, and tropical ecosystems will be covered for the Gulf, Atlantic, and Pacific coasts. Students should bring appropriate clothing/gear (e.g. boots, sunscreen, etc.) to participate in the field component of the course.

Nominees must be assigned: (a) Occupational series: 0020, 0400s, 0800s, and 1300s; (b) Grade: GS-09 and above; and (c) This course is meant primarily for engineers, scientists, and technicians with planning, operations, or regulatory duty assignments involving marine and coastal systems.
