There are wide range of domains which are studied in oceanography such as ecosystem dynamics, sea life, waves, tides, ocean currents, geology of the sea floor, plate tectonics etc. An oceanographer is a scientist who investigates ecology of marine organisms, chemistry & geology of ocean, physical attributes of ocean such as temperature, waves, tides etc. in detail. Oceanographers play an important role in mitigating the effects of climate change, overpopulation, and overfishing.
