  Oceanography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oceanographers study a diverse range of topics such as plate tectonics to ocean currents to marine organisms.
The five branches tend to stem from the fact that many oceanographers are trained in the exact sciences and then specialise in oceanography.
Early exploration of the oceans was limited to its surfaces and the few creatures that fishermen brought up in nets, but when Bougainville and Cook carried out their explorations in the South Pacific, the seas themselves formed part of the reports.

Oceanographers can specialise in several areas: physical oceanographers study the ocean currents, tides and circulation; geological oceanographers study the landforms, rocks and sediment beneath the ocean; biological oceanographers study marine life; marine scientists study the chemistry and composition of the ocean.
Oceanographers make a lot of use of computers, and advanced computer and instrumental technology is allowing oceanographers to develop detailed imagery of the ocean floor.
Oceanographers are at the forefront of developing and using new technologies to analyse the chemistry of ocean waters.

 Oceanographer
Oceanographer (AGS–3), formerly Corsair II, was built in 1899 by W. and A. Fletcher Co., Hoboken, N.J. Except for a brief period of commissioned service during World War I, she served as a luxury yacht for J. Morgan until 1930.
She was acquired by the Navy from the Coast and Geodetic Survey at Norfolk, Va. 7 April 1942, briefly renamed Natchez (PG–85); renamed Oceanographer (AGS–3); rerigged and outfitted at Norfolk Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. for survey duty; and commissioned 15 August.
Oceanographer decommissioned 22 September, was struck from the Naval Register 14 October, and, in accordance with the agreement executed with J. Morgan, Jr., broken up for scrap.

The physical oceanographer studies the physical properties of the ocean and the relationship between the sea and the atmosphere.
A good oceanographer must be willing to spend at least 50 percent of his/her time at sea engaged in surveys or conducting research.
The sacrifices involved in this type of sea duty are tremendous; however, most oceanographers have found that the rewards that come from discovering the ocean's secrets far outweigh the imposition of long deployments at sea.

 Oceanographer
Four types of oceanographers are biological oceanographers, geological oceanographers, marine scientists, and physical oceanographers.
For example, a physical oceanographer monitors the surface and currents of the ocean while a biological oceanographer studies the marine life in the ocean.
An oceanographer can work indoors and outdoors, on the ocean and on land, in a lab or on a ship, in hot and cold, in groups or by him/herself, and in the day time or night time.

Walter Munk, considered by many to be one of the world’s greatest living oceanographers, will be awarded the inaugural Prince Albert I Medal from the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans (IAPSO).
The award is named in honor of the late Prince Albert I of Monaco, a devoted participant in early oceanographic research, who, in 1919, organized the Oceanography Section of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics and other international ocean research organizations.
After seeing the results of recent oceanographic voyages in an exhibition in the Paris Museum, Prince Albert made a decision in 1884 to devote his time and resources to oceanography.

Whale migration routes and habitat use are determined by where the plankton that whales eat can be found, which in turn is driven by oceanic conditions, which depends on the climate.
URI Graduate School of Oceanography marine scientist Dr. Robert G. Campbell has received a $340,000 collaborative research grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study the impact of environmental change on the bowhead whale population and Inupiat subsistence whaling along the coast of Alaska.
The NSF grant will allow the scientists to identify and understand the complexity of the linkages, mechanisms, and interactions that occur in the atmosphere, ocean, and within the human population, as well observe and record the response and resilience of these components to environmental change.
