    A global "conveyor belt" is set in motion when deep water forms in the North Atlantic, sinks, moves south, circulates around Antarctica, and then moves northward to the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic basins. A simplified version of the global conveyor belt is shown in Figure 1, below. The global conveyor belt moves water slowly, 10 centimeters. Oceanography Introduction. Oceanography, alternately known as oceanology or marine science, is a branch of science that studies the open oceans, coastal regions, and seas. The science of oceanography covers a wide variety of topics and scientific disciplines.

Burke, Meg by. Looking at our Earth from space, it is obvious that we live on a water planet. Ocean covers over 70% of the Earth's surface and contains about 97% of the Earth's surface water. Life in the oceans can be found from the surface to the extreme environments at the bottom of the deepest submarine trench.

It is not surprising that the oceans. Summary. The National Science Foundation (NSF) tasked the U.S. physical oceanographic community in to evaluate the current status of research in physical oceanography and to identify future opportunities and infrastructure needs. Future Directions in Ocean Sciences The possibility of and the need for studying the ocean on a global scale provide a major impetus for new partnerships in oceanography.

The design and deployment of a global ocean observing system, now being discussed, will be possible only with the cooperation of ocean scientists and governments throughout the world. According to Sverdrup, an eminent geophysicist, “our knowledge of the oceans is still fragmentary and inadequate.

It is true that the foundation of the present discipline of oceanography was laid much earlier in the classical period, but its development as a systematic science began in the nineteenth century.

Oceanography as a science began in the 19th century with the work of such men as U.S. naval officer Matthew Fontaine Maury and his compilation of oceanographic data from ships'logs.

The first major scientific expedition, and the one that firmly established the field of oceanography, was the around-the-world voyage of H.M.S.
