Oceanography expert witnesses may be sought out for a variety of cases, as the discipline may concern any type of litigation related to the ocean. Since oceanography refers to the scientific study of the ocean, oceanography expert consulting may be highly valuable for cases involving such areas as nautical charts, US coast pilots, climatology, meteorology, environmental engineering, coastal engineering, geological petrography, geochemistry, and other such matters, each of which may be of significance to the proceedings of numerous types of lawsuits.
Oceanography covers such a broad range of topics related to the sea. Oceanography expert witnesses might have varying backgrounds and areas of focus within the field. Some experts may study wildlife and other aspects of environmental science, while other oceanography experts may focus on the weather of such environments as a means of studying forecasting and weather risk assessment, as well as other areas related to meteorology within ocean settings.
Oceanography expert witnesses may also be experienced with civil engineering, drainage, engineering geology, hydrology, erosion, hydrogeology, marine engineering, coastal development, nuclear power, offshore platforms, environmental remediation, oil spills, pollution, ocean circulation, materials engineering, materials science, fisheries, water quality, and other issues concerning oceanic environments.
Oceanography expert witnesses may also have experience with maritime accidents, as well as marine survey, navigation, port design, topography, and other areas related to boating regulations and safety.
