Ocean geography for ocean science

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Since the middle 1980s oceanography has been required to deal also with deep-ocean and coastal management issues. To respond to this need, interaction of oceanography with other disciplines is essential. In this prospect geography has an important role because, on the basis of its heritage, it could contributes to 1) the epistemological discussion of the building up of ocean science, 2) the analysis of the human communities/ocean ecosystem interaction, and 3) the design of sustainable development-consistent management patterns. The conceptual background and external epistemology needed by ocean geography to optimise this role are presented and discussed
