Physical Oceanography

Physical oceanography is the study of physical conditions and physical processes within the ocean, especially the motions and physical properties of ocean waters. Energy for the ocean circulation (and for the atmospheric circulation) comes from solar radiation and gravitational energy from the sun and moon. Oceanic currents are largely driven by the surface wind stress; hence the large-scale atmospheric circulation is important to understanding the ocean circulation. This addresses mainly on Observation, modeling coastal and open - ocean processes, Climate Change in the Coastal Ocean, Estuarine and coastal sedimentary processes, Ecosystems and climate change applications.

At the ocean-atmosphere interface, the ocean and atmosphere exchange fluxes of heat, moisture and momentum. The oceans' large heat capacity moderates the climate of areas adjacent to the oceans, leading to a maritime climate at such locations. This can be a result of heat storage in summer and release in winter; or of transport of heat from warmer locations: a particularly notable example of this is Western Europe, which is heated at least in part by the north Atlantic drift.
