"Oceanography" is Oceanography also known as oceanology, is the study of the physical and biological aspects of the ocean.

A few scholars of "Oceanography" include In 1881 the geographer John Francon Williams published a seminal book, Geography of the Oceans. Between 1907 and 1911 Otto Krümmel published the Handbuch der Ozeanographie,.

Some questions in "Oceanography" involve It is an important Earth science, which covers a wide range of topics, including ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor.

Why study "Oceanography"? Oceanography is the study of the ocean environment and its inhabitants. A degree in oceanography gives you a firm foundation in biology, chemistry, geology and physics. There's lots of hands-on training, too. With such broad skills, our graduates are well prepared to understand and help manage the world's oceans.
