What is a typical day for a scientist in the Marine Biology and Oceanography field?

I am looking to go into the Marine Biology and Oceanography field and want to know from someone already in it what it's like. What do you do on a daily/weekly basis, do you work with many people or few, etc. Thanks! #science #marine-biology #environmental #oceanography

I have no experience in this field. I wish you the best, though and good luck on any path you choose!

Thank you comment icon Hi Lauren. Thank you so much for responding to Meagan's question! I just wanted to let you know that you are in no way obligated to answer all of the questions that get sent out to you by email. Sometimes, our system sends out questions to volunteers that do not necessarily match their areas of expertise. In cases like these, it's perfectly fine to just skip over the question and move on to posts you feel better match your background in environmental services and food safety. I looked at some of the posts you've written so far, and it looks like students are truly benefiting from the advice you're giving! Thank you for your continued support. It's truly volunteers like yourself that make our CareerVillage community great -David Ohta David Ohta COACH

It depends on what part of the field that you want to go into. Have you looked into the various careers that you can have in marine science? Depending on what your job requirements are, you may work in large groups or alone, in an office, a research lab, or out in the field. The type of work that you do would also be dependent on the job that you have - you may be conducting research, educating people, SCUBA diving, or cleaning up a beach.
Research the various careers in marine science and see what you are interested in. This will help with narrowing down the answers to your questions.

Kenneth’s Answer

Meagan,


As an oceanographer in the Navy, I also work in meteorology and hydrography. Our job as Naval Oceanographers is to ensure decision makers fully understand the environment, the risks associated with operating under certain conditions, and how to best exploit the environment to our advantage. Very few of our positions are purely oceanography: In your studies, you'll come to understand how the atmosphere and ocean are coupled, influencing one another in big ways. Even fewer of our positions are purely scientific: We are the Navy's environmental experts, leveraging our understanding of the environment to accomplish the mission and keep our folks safe.


I hope this helps!
