How Much Does An Oceanographer Make Per Year? Average Oceanographer Salary?

Job opportunities for oceanographers and geoscientists are expected to grow as fast as the average between now and the year 2012. Their largest employers include architectural and engineering services, oil and gas extraction firms, scientific consulting companies and state governments. The average annual salary of an oceanographer is $90,000. However, those who have long years of experience earn up to $150,000. The salaries vary depending primarily on the region, education and employer. Many oceanographers get their first jobs as a result of contacts made during their schooling. Those who have a doctoral degree may advance to top research and administrative positions. Oceanographers’ findings are useful to many industries such as fishing, oil and mining.
