Oceanography H. P. Lovecraft once said “Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories and the dreams of Time.” (Lovecraft, n.d., Ocean Quotes). Extracting information from times past is what some are researching today. The oceans are vast and mysterious but with the advent of new technology many unmanned submersibles are being built and used to find out more on the mysteries of the ocean. A brief introduction to what oceanography encompasses along with a little history
Introduction Oceanography is an amazing career that presents many exciting new techniques and knowledge. This career is also known as marine science, and it is the study of the world’s oceans and ocean currents, including its aspects of chemistry, physics, and meteorology etc. Oceanography also studies marine organisms, plate tectonics, and sea floor geology. Oceanography also has many sub fields within it. For example; Biological oceanographers study the plants and animals in the marine environment

Oceanography as we have already seen has emerged as a strong and important branch of geography and is interdisciplinary in nature as it is associated with many other sciences like physics, geology, mathematics, meteorology, hydrodynamics, chemistry, zoology and botany 4. Biogeography: It gives a spatial and temporal analysis of distribution of plants and animals on the earth surface. It is the branch too closely associated with human beings as it studies Biosphere, which is called as the life layer
I’m going into oceanography to do meaningful and fascinating work. Oceanography is an incredibly diverse field. There’s ocean life blooming on the surface of the waves as well as thousands of feet under them, and because there is so much ocean to explore, this career path can take me all over the
technology used to extract the minerals is harmful to the ocean and its life forms. Also, some have looked at the hydrothermal vents for easy places to dump nuclear waste, according to a document discussing the exploration of the deep sea titled “Oceanography 1998: Exploring the Ocean Abyss.” The damage and obstacles required to mine these vents would not be worth the mineral wealth. These hydrothermal vents need to be respected and preserved; furthermore the expansion of mining them must not continue
Oceanography is also commonly known as ocean logy or marine science. It is a branch of science that studies ocean and tries to understand the processes within it. The researches conducted by oceanographers are used by government and industry. The flora and fauna found in the ocean are used for medical research. These researchers are trying to discover the new supply of foodstuff made from plants and animals in the ocean. There are many branches of oceanography. They include: • Marine Physics:
needs the right tools and also people to work with. Oceanography isn't just all about the ocean and animals; it is also about geography. In order to become an oceanographer, an individual needs to know what an oceanographer is, what skills are needed to be successful, and how oceanographers help the environment, so that this goal can be accomplished. Oceanography can be a fun thing to do if you are interested in environmental topics; oceanography can be just like studying the forest, caves, fossils
biogeochemistry research in Indonesia marine waters and define the new focus in oceanography study. The essay itself is presented in the following outline. The first part is the discussion about the world trend topic in biogeochemistry using bibliometric study. The next part is discussed about study of biogeochemistry in South East Asia and surround. The information regarding the Indonesia marine waters, especially about oceanography condition including an information about Indonesian trough-flow are discussed
