Oceanographers-Physical oceanography

What Is It

Physical Oceanography is the study of the dynamics and thermodynamics of the sea. Our interests range widely. The phenomena under study include mixing, convection, nearshore dynamics, sediment dynamics, internal/external waves,?flows from harbour scale to global scale, and the climate system. The applications range from general topics in geophysical fluid dynamics to modern techniques of data-assimilation and operational oceanography, and from modelling techniques to acoustical oceanography.




In public sector one can find opportunities in Oil India. Government sector organisations include Geological Survey of India, Meteorological Survey of India, Department of Oceanography etc. Companies in the private sector with interests in the marine industries, products or research also provide job options. Candidates with skill and ability can also choose teaching.?
