Microbial ecology of oceans

Microbial ecology (or environmental microbiology) is the ecology ofmicroorganisms: their relationship with one another and with their environment. It concerns the three major domains of life—Eukaryota, Archaea, and Bacteria—as well as viruses. Microorganisms, by their omnipresence, impact the entire biosphere. aquatic microbial dynamics, in particular viruses, prokaryotes and eukaryotes -- planktonic and benthic, autotrophic and heterotophic -- in marine, limnetic and brackish habitats.

It is needless to emphasize the importance of water in our life. Without water, there is  no life on our planet.  We need water for different purposes. We need water for drinking, for industries, for irrigation, for swimming and fishing, etc. Water for different purposes has its own requirements as to composition and purity. Each body of water needs to be analysed on a regular basis to confirm to suitability. The types of analysis could vary from simple field testing for a single analyte to laboratory based multi-component instrumental analysis. The measurement of water quality is a very exacting and time-consuming process, and a large number of quantitative analytical methods are used for this Purpose.
