Oceanology is the branch of Geography that studies the sea. It covers an extensive variety of subjects, including biological system elements; sea streams, waves, and geophysical liquid progression; plate tectonics and the topography of the ocean bottom; and fluxes of different synthetic substances and physical properties inside the sea and over its limits. These assorted subjects mirror different controls that oceanographers mix to further information of the World Sea and comprehension of Procedures inside space science, science, science, climatology, topography, geography, hydrology, meteorology and material science. Paleoceanographyconcentrates on the historical backdrop of the seas in the geologic past. Branches are of four sort's Biological oceanography, Chemical oceanography, Geological oceanography, Physical oceanography.

Physical oceanography is the study of physical conditions and physical processes within the ocean, especially the motions and physical properties of ocean waters. Physical oceanography focuses on describing and understanding the evolving patterns of ocean circulation and fluid motion, along with the distribution of its properties such as temperature, salinity and the concentration of dissolved chemical elements and gases. The ocean as a dynamic fluid is studied at a wide range of spatial scales, from the centimetre scales relevant to turbulent microstructure through the many thousand kilometre scales of the ocean gyres and global overturning circulation. Approaches include theory, direct observation, and computer simulation. Our research frequently takes place in the context of important multidisciplinary issues including the dynamics and predictability of global climate and the sustainability of human use in coastal and estuarine regions.

Biological oceanography is the study of life in the oceans the distribution, abundance, and production of marine species along with the processes that govern species' spread and development. The goal of biological oceanography is to understand what controls the abundances, kinds, and temporal variation of organisms in the sea. Our research and teaching programs are oriented toward a mechanistic understanding of processes. To this end we employ a variety of approaches including field observations, laboratory experiments and theoretical models. Biological oceanographers and marine biologists approach the study of marine organisms from different perspectives. Biological oceanographers tend to study how organisms both shape and are shaped by the physics, chemistry, and geology of a system while marine biologists tend to study organisms themselves, including their physiology, life history, and distribution patterns. IGPMS has an array of opportunities in both of these related and at times overlapping areas.

Marine Biogeochemistry is devoted to the understanding of biogeochemical processes in marine systems, including the marine boundary layer. It aims to publish innovative insights into all aspects of marine biogeochemistry in both the open ocean and shelf seas. Marine Biogeochemistry focuses on the ocean's role in the biogeochemical cycling of selected elements and the impact of humans on the cycling of these elements. Among the topics covered are the chemical composition of seawater from the perspectives of elemental speciation and the impacts of solutes on water's physical behaviour, biogeochemical phenomena which control accumulation and preservation of marine sediments; marine chemistry of radioactive and stable isotopes; and seawater pollution. The book contains many examples as well as steady-state models to aid readers in understanding this growing and complex science.

Marine geology or geological oceanography is the study of the history and structure of the ocean floor. It involves geophysical, geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological investigations of the ocean floor and coastal zone. Marine geology has strong ties to physical oceanography.

Marine geological studies were of extreme importance in providing the critical evidence for sea floor spreading and plate tectonics in the years following World War II. The deep ocean floor is the last essentially unexplored frontier and detailed mapping in support of both military objectives and economic objectives drives the research i.e. in Petroleum Field.

Marine pollution occurs when harmful, or potentially harmful, effects result from the entry into the ocean of chemicals, particles, industrial, agricultural and residential waste, noise, or the spread of invasive organisms. Nutrient pollution, a form of water pollution, refers to contamination by excessive inputs of nutrients. It is a primary cause of eutrophication of surface waters, in which excess nutrients, usually nitrogen or phosphorus, stimulate algae growth. Many potentially toxic chemicals adhere to tiny particles which are then taken up by plankton and benthos animals, most of which are either deposit or filter feeders. In this way, the toxins are concentrated upward within ocean food chains. Many particles combine chemically in a manner highly depletive of oxygen, causing estuaries to become anoxic.

Ocean Covers 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, the world’s oceans have a two-way relationship with weather and climate. The oceans influence the weather on local to global scales, while changes in climate can fundamentally alter many properties of the oceans. This chapter examines how some of these important characteristics of the oceans have changed over time.

As greenhouse gases trap more energy from the sun, the oceans are absorbing more heat, resulting in an increase in sea surface temperatures and rising sea level. Changes in ocean temperatures and currents brought about by climate change will lead to alterations in climate patterns around the world. For example, warmer waters may promote the development of stronger storms in the tropics, which can cause property damage and loss of life. The impacts associated with sea level rise and stronger storms are especially relevant to coastal communities. Changes in ocean systems generally occur over much longer time periods than in theatmosphere, where storms can form and dissipate in a single day. Interactions between the oceans and atmosphere occur slowly over many months to years, and so does the movement of water within the oceans, including the mixing of deep and shallow waters.

Coastal oceanography includes both physical and biological aspects. Physical coastal oceanography research at BML focuses on ocean upwelling, land runoff, and the connections between coastal estuaries and the ocean.Coastal oceanography at the land-sea interface is a unique niche in oceanography and there is little doubt that the Coastal Oceanography Group (COG), is highly productive at both regional and national/international levels. The COG focuses on regional place-based research along the north coast of California, taking advantage of the unique ocean upwelling zone, as well as in comparable regions globally. With new as well as continued collaborations with biologists and modellers, and with diverse funding for this research, the COG has made a major impact on our understanding of coastal processes at both the basic physical oceanography.

The level of global economic activity and the resultant amount of world trade. It is estimated that over 90% of world trade is carried by sea and over the period 1985 to 1999, world seaborne trade increased by 50% to about 5 billion tons with the largest increase coming in crude oil and oil products shipments. During 1990-98 growth averaged 3.2% per annum. It is reported that in 1998 trade experienced its first dip for 15 years, which was due to the S.E. Asian economic problems. However, the decline was generally only within the region. Since then some of the countries concerned have accomplished a turnaround. Global markets consist of three major regions; Europe and North America are similar in size forming 25% and 26% of the market. Asia forms the largest region at an estimated 34%, with much of this shipbuilding and shipping activity cantered in S.E. Asia.
