SG. Oceanography

 

The roots of science / platform Expertise

Oceanography is derived from the word oceanography composed of Oceanos word (meaning the sea) and graphos (meaning picture). The second constituent word in the Greek language literally means that a picture of the sea. In more detail, the Oceanographic defined as the study of the processes of physical, dynamic and chemical occurred at sea. Studies in Oceanography is also strongly related and inseparable with other terrestrial studies, such as the study of the lithosphere (the solid earth), atmosphere (air), cryosphere (permafrost), and biosphere (life activities).

The fields of study developed in KK-Oceanographic include Oceanographic Coastal (including the study and modeling of the processes of physical, dynamic and chemical on the beach including estuaries, such as sedimentation and coastal erosion, pejalaran and the interaction of the waves on the beach, tidal and aspects enjineringnya, seawater intrusion, intraksi land-sea and the potential of ocean energy), Oceanography regional and Global (including the study and modeling of the processes of physical, dynamic and chemical deepwater regional and global scale, such as the study of the interaction of sea air, tsunami and studies on cross currents Indonesia), oceanographic environment (including the study of oceanography associated with aspects of environmental impact, such as studies and modeling of the spread of oil spills or other pollutants in the ocean, oceanography fisheries and studies on the impact of physical processes, dynamic and chemistry of the sea against various aspects of community life such as economics, management of the pan tai and disaster mitigation beach), the Oceanographic Modeling (including the development of numerical models to study the dynamics of marine, coastal processes, and assessment of marine environmental issues).

SG-Oceanographic Platform: development of theoretical and applied aspects of oceanography that explores the specificity of the Archipelago Sea (KLN). Oceanography has roots Physics and Mathematics and supported by the science and technology involved in the field of Geosciences include Geology, Geophysics and Atmospheric Sciences, Astronomy, Chemistry, Electronics, and Management.
