Marine geology or geological oceanography is the study of the history and structure of the ocean floor. It involves geophysical, geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological investigations of the ocean floor and coastal geology has strong ties to geophysics and to physical oceanography.. Marine geological studies were of extreme importance in providing the critical evidence.
