Welcome to Oceanography
Oceanography is the study of the deep sea and shallow coastal oceans. The branches such as biology, chemistry, geology and physics together make oceanography a richly interdisciplinary science. Oceans do not operate alone but interacts with the atmosphere, continents and ice-cover.
Physical Oceanography is the study of physical processes in the oceans by applying the fundamental laws of physics and their interaction with the atmosphere.
