Oceanography is an open-access journal containing peer-reviewed articles that chronicle all aspects of ocean science and its applications. Oceanography is published four times a year in online and paper formats.
Individual articles and full issues in our digital library are posted online immediately upon publication and are available to everyone via the Oceanography website. Printed copies are a benefit of joining The Oceanography Society.
The Oceanography Society (TOS) was founded in 1988 to advance oceanographic research, technology, and education, and to disseminate knowledge of oceanography and its application through research and education. TOS promotes the broad understanding of oceanography, facilitates consensus building across all the disciplines of the field, and informs the public about ocean research, innovative technology, and educational opportunities throughout the spectrum of oceanographic inquiry. TOS welcomes members from all nations. Any individual, business, or organization interested in ocean sciences is encouraged to join and to participate in the activities and benefits of the society.
