Oceanography is an interdisciplinary science that uses insights from biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, and physics to analyze ocean currents, marine ecosystems, ocean storms, waves, ocean plate tectonics, and features of the ocean floor, including exotic biomes such as cold seeps and hydrothermal vents.

People specializing in this area


Raymond G. Najjar, Jr.

Most of my oceanographic research has been in the field of marine biogeochemistry, with a particular focus on dissolved gases, like carbon dioxide, oxygen, carbon monoxide, carbonyl sulfide and dimethyl sulfide.  A current activity in this area is my involvement in the USECoS project, which, through modeling, data analysis, and field observations, is focused on the carbon cycle of the continental shelf of the Eastern U.S.
