Chemical Oceanographer

Alex Feldman

What they do.

Chemical oceanography is the study of the ocean with a chemical perspective. A chemical oceanographer could find themselves analyzing samples from ocean boundaries such as the air/water, river/ocean, sediment/water interfaces, from within the water column and/or from superficial or deep sediments. Chemical oceanography is involved with an extremely broad range of jobs and can no longer really be studied as a 'stand alone' job- if you study chemical oceanography it is highly likely that you will not only find yourself collaborating with other oceanographers - physicists, biologists and geologists, but also with other 'geo-science' disciplines, such as atmospheric, geographical and geological scientists
