Chemical Oceanography and the Ocean's Central Investigations
Chemical Oceanography is a type of incorporative oceanography. Marine circulation, weather, the plants and animals that live in the ocean, and material exchange with the aerosphere, cryosphere, continents, and mantle all have a role in the ocean's chemistry. The Chemical Oceanography's study areas reflect this diversification of influences on the ocean's chemistry. The final source of chemical individuals in the sea is mostly rivers, which transport their liquified and particulate intake through estuaries. This is the site of the ocean's closest encounter with humans, as well as a unique example of Puget Sound. The flux of biologically introduced organic materials from the euphotic zone is the primary source of most chemical changes in the sea. The sink for anthropogenically produced greenhouse gases is the gas exchange at the air-water interface.
