Oceanography and Weather

What is oceanography?

Oceanography is the study of the world’s oceans, including the waters and everything in them: animals, plants, and minerals. Oceanographers study the physics, chemistry, biology, and geology of the seas. Oceanography is important to understand in relation to meteorology for many reasons.
