I Want To Be An Oceanographer!

What do oceanographers do? They make maps of the ocean floor, study the life and death of coral reefs, and keep track of ocean currents. Oceanographers work not just at sea in floating laboratories. They work on land, and along the coast to collect information about the temperature and chemistry of the water, undersea land formations, and what it all means for weather, wildlife, and the environment. Oceanographers sometimes go underwater. They use a submarine to look for deep sea vents and chimneys 1½ miles below the ocean's surface.

An oceanographer spends a lot of time studying the information that’s collected!
