Physical Oceanography is the study of physical conditions and processes that occur in the oceans and its interaction with the atmosphere, land and ice. Major topic of study are Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Coastal Oceanography, Ocean Engineering, Air-Sea Interaction, Waves, Tides, Ocean Acoustics and Ocean Remote Sensing.

To cater the needs of oceanographers for this country, a postgraduate program in Oceanography commenced in 1965 at the erstwhile Department of Marine Biology and Oceanography under University of Kerala. Later it was attached to Physical Oceanography and Meteorology Division (POMD) of University of Cochin.

The Department of Physical Oceanography was established in 1996 as part of the restructuring programme of the University and continued to offer the prestigious master program.
