What is an oceanographer?
An oceanographer is a scientist who studies the ocean (in general). The study may be called oceanography, oceanology, or marine science. The term oceanography means "ocean writing" and includes related fields such as marine geology, climatology, and marine biology. An oceanography is simply someone who studies the ocean, but there are different fields for an oceanographer to delve into.

What is the difference between a oceanographer and a marine biologist?
The difference between an oceanographer and a marine biologist is very small, but yet there is a big difference, one that could affect into which career you'd like to go in. both occupations study marine life and organisms, but in a different way. Basically, an oceanographer studies life in the context of oceanography, but a marine biologist studies marine species that live in the ocean and other salt-water environments Take a group of fish for example. An oceanographer would study the impact some cold upwellings would have on the fish, whereas a marine biologist would study the reproduction of the fish. reference http://marinebio.org/Oceans/MarineBiology.asp
