Whether as a minor or in pursuing a graduate degree in Oceanography, ocean sciences advance our understanding of perhaps the most influential force on our Earth system's processes our oceans, and perhaps the least understood. Explore the world to investigate the complex questions of the oceans' future, present and past through an immersive interdisciplinary education, both in the labs and in the field, in Ocean Climate, Marine Ecosystem Science and Health, Ocean Observing Science and Technology, and Ocean Energy.
The Kuroshio Current off the east coast of Japan is one of the world’s strongest currents, and like the Gulf Stream current in the Atlantic Ocean, is comprised of warm water. A team of international scientists, led by five researchers from Texas A&M University, have completed a detailed study of the Kuroshio Current and their findings could have an impact on predicting future weather patterns in the North Pacific sector and beyond.Read more
Texas A&M University’s College of Geosciences has successfully launched two new High Frequency (HF) radars as the first phase of the highly collaborative “Smart Gulf” initiative that will provide instant oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Gulf of Mexico. This data will impact the lives of thousands of commercial fishermen, oil and gas workers, shipping and recreational boaters, coastal residents and others who are in and around the Gulf at any moment of the day.Read more
