Masters Degrees in Geological Oceanography

We have 11 Masters Degrees in Geological Oceanography

Masters degrees in Geological Oceanography offer advanced study of the sedimentary processes within the Earth’s oceans, including deposition and marine dynamics. Related postgraduate specialisms include Geological Sciences and Marine Science. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Environmental Science, Geology or Marine Biology.

Why study a Masters in Geological Oceanography?

## Courses in Marine Geology explore the ways in which the oceans interact with sediments, rocks and air, as well as the effects of the Earth’s mantle on the sea floor. Their purpose is to uncover geological events that have occurred in the past, to understand current processes and predict those likely to occur in the future. For example, you may examine the biogeochemical cycles of different marine ecologies, the effect of natural and manmade pollutants on sedimentary processes, and human impact on coastlines and coral reefs. Practical training may include geomatic techniques such as bathymetry (measuring ocean floors and benthic zones), and geovisualisation methods such as ocean surface topography and geoid assessment through satellite geodesy. Careers may range from coastal marine management and environmental monitoring, to maritime law and consultancy.
