Oceanography is a wide field that looks at everything from marine organisms and ecosystems to ocean currents and waves to plate tectonics at the ocean floor. It combines biology, chemistry, geology, physics, and meteorology. It is also sometimes referred to as marine science.
Oceanography is the study of the deep sea and shallow coastal oceans: biology, chemistry, geology and physics together make oceanography a richly interdisciplinary science. Although they contain most of the Earth’s water and carbon and surface heat, and much of its biomass, the oceans do not operate alone. Together with the atmosphere, continents and ice-cover (the cryosphere), they form a working machine, driven mostly by energy from the sun. Lesser amounts of energy derive from tides raised by the moon and sun and planets, and heat from the Earth”s interior.
It’s the study of oceans. It can include the study of currents, waves, geology of the sea floor, chemical make up, and much more. It’s related to biology, chemistry, and geology.
