I need help with a Environmental Science question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Part 1: Identify the Issue: (10 points) Take the time now to consider a research topic carefully, determine that your thesis is not too narrow or too broad, and find four or five good primary scientific references. The assignment will be much more comfortable when writing the research paper in Part 2 and writing three letters of appeal in Part 4. Conversely, avoiding doing a few hours of research for MPP Part 1, will make Parts 2, 3, 4 much more difficult. The only restrictions on the choice of a MPP issue is that it must be related to the ocean. Include full citations of the preliminary references in the assignment submission. Read chapters 14 and 15 in the textbook and look online for ideas. Other places to search are the NOAA Ocean Explorer website; the NASA Oceanography webpage; the USGS Pacific Coast and Marine Science Center; and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
