What is an Oceanographer? What Does One Do?
January 8 @ 10:00 am - 10:55 am
Presenter: Michael Tomlinson In this presentation “Oceanographer” and “Oceanography” are defined and the various oceanographic sub-disciplines are described. A brief overview of five oceanographic projects will be presented to characterize the types of work that an oceanographer might be involved in: work on Ice Station BRAVO; an oil spill in the North Sea; the effects of offshore oil and gas production on the continental shelf; and the effects of ocean disposed military munitions on the coastal ocean.
