What does an ocean scientist do?
An oceanographer explores the world’s oceans, and it’s properties. Studies include plate tectonics, chemical/physical properties, marine life, ecosystems, geology of the seafloor, and ocean circulation. Oceanographers investigate issues like eroding coastlines, climate change, or declining fisheries.
Within this Earth system, both the physical and biological processes of the ocean play a key role in the water cycle, the carbon cycle, and climate variability. Ocean related feedback exists between Climate Variability, Water Cycle and Carbon Cycle.
What is ocean biology called?
Marine biology is the study of marine organisms, their behaviors and interactions with the environment. Marine biologists study biological oceanography and the associated fields of chemical, physical, and geological oceanography to understand marine organisms.
