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. Physical Oceanography is the study of physical processes in the oceans and its interaction with atmosphere, land and ice. Oceans are important to us because of its biodiversity, resources (minerals, natural gas, fishery, freshwater) and most importantly to its influence on the weather and climate of Earth.
