Oceanographers are used to study some of the most amazing phenomena in the world. These activities may include surveying the ocean for underwater rocks. They can study the effects of environmental changes in the ocean, as well as how the ocean responds to different types of energy.
Oceanography can be very technical and help a person learn about certain types of waves and their frequency, what these waves do and how these waves affect the water and what changes can occur over time. Understanding the ocean allows the creation of new products and strategies for the oceanographer to use.
As an oceanographer, you may be able to provide insight and predict when major natural disasters are about to occur, predict weather patterns and what will happen in the future.
