    Hi all,

    In a document, I read the two terms above and it really puzzles me. Please help me to see the difference between the two.

    Oceanography is the exploration and study of the ocean. Marine research I think deals more with the study of marine organisms. Someone with more knowledge than I could answer this more adequately.
