Applied Oceanography


Head of Laboratory Dr. Totok Suprijo, M.Si

Dean Decree No : 187/SK/Ii.C05/KP/2016, Februari 5 – 2016


Applied Oceanography Laboratory serves an educational and research activities. As an educational laboratory, all the laboratory facilities are used for practicum courses in the curriculum of Oceanographic Study Program. This laboratory also facilitates students who are working on the final report, and provide facilities for field activities and student excursions by lending oceanography observation tools. The field of research studies conducted in this laboratory are physical phenomena in coastal waters (sedimentation, erosion, tsunami impact, wave propagation, tidal and coastal currents, and the dynamics of estuaries) and coastal dynamics. The study of coastal dynamics is done by doing mathematical modeling or through field observation.


  • Education: serving course laboratory, field study, and student final report.
  • Research: facilitating researcher who conducting surveys / observations around coastal waters such as tide measurements, flow and ocean waves. Also facilitate research using computational and mathematical models in coastal waters
  • Community services: conducting oceanographic surveys for the development coastal facilities such as ports, jetty and coastal protection buildings.
