Oceanography introduces the major physical and biological features of Earth's oceans and examines how they are connected. It explores the geologic processes that shape the ocean basins, the forces that move seawater and influence the planet's climate and coastlines, and the changing physical conditions and selective pressures—including those caused by human activities—that affect the nature and distribution of marine life.
