Fascinating Marine Careers
Once your child has completed their accredited High School Diploma, through an excellent online internationally accredited school, such as Anchored Education, there is a myriad of ocean-related studies to pursue at university. There must be a focus on choosing all the right subjects. There are “classical” jobs that exist in the ocean. However, in today’s times, there are many hybrids of these jobs, for example, that of an ecologist, climatologist, biogeochemist, etc., that combine various disciplines.
Let us take a closer look at a few of the fields that are available.
A physical oceanographer studies the motion (waves, currents) of the sea, does numerical modeling, collects data at sea, publishes papers, studies the heat flux and volume transport of currents, the impact of the atmosphere on oceans, and vice versa. University subjects: physical oceanography, physics, mathematics, meteorology.
A marine biologist studies the living creatures of the sea, like the marine fauna (fish, mammals, lobsters, plankton, etc.) and flora (different types of seaweed). The person will collect data at sea using nets and other means (also diving) and classify living organisms in terms of taxonomy. The interaction between different animals in terms of the food chain, the response to external impacts (e.g., fishing, climate change), determine fishing quotas, save endangered species University subjects: (marine) zoology, botany, taxonomy, chemistry.
Choices need to be made between so many available online school programs for your child, and that can be daunting. We want to offer you peace of mind with Anchored Education, a unique online school striving for educational excellence, to deliver internationally accredited, quality education to learners.
A marine chemist studies the chemistry of the sea, by collecting samples of the sediment or tissue at sea or on the beach, determining the chemical constituents in an analytical laboratory. The outcome will be used to determine the presence of pollutants like heavy metals carried to the sea in residential and industrial effluent. flora (different types of seaweed). University subjects: chemistry (organic, inorganic). oceanography.
A marine geologist studies the structure of the sea bottom and the earth’s crust. Of interest would be the exploration of minerals on the seabed, but also for oil and gas in the sub-bottom strata. University subjects: geology, geomorphology.
