The study of the deep sea and shallow coastal oceans; biology, chemistry, geology and physics together make oceanography a richly interdisciplinary science.
- Collecting samples and data from the sea, sea floor or atmosphere using specialised equipment and techniques;
- Analysing samples for natural and contaminant composition;
- Analysing life forms and matter, such as trace metals, present in sea water;
- at life for simulations of ocean phenomena using computer or mathematical models;
- Simulate statistical models of laboratory and field data to investigate hypotheses and make predictions;
- Statistical and interpreting data from samples, measurements and remote sensing aids;
- Attending conferences and going on research cruises;< prospectus>
