Applied Ocean Sciences

Applied ocean sciences focus on the application of advanced technology to ocean exploration and observation. Fields include marine acoustics, optics, electromagnetics, geophysics, ecology, sediment transport, coastal processes, physical oceanography, and air-sea interaction. The emphasis is on the resolution of key scientific issues through novel technological development.

Centers, Labs, and Programs

A global network of robotic floats that measure the changing state of the ocean.

Develops and implements coastal observatories, serves as a science and technical interface with local, state, and federal agencies, and manages various system components.

Develops autonomous instrument platforms and sensors for them, builds instrumented vehicles, and operates floats and gliders for such projects.

Research interests are broadly concerned with the use of new technology for observing oceanic phenomena and the development of inverse techniques for their interpretation.

Provides a critical service to the oceanographic community by innovating new drifter designs and sensors as demanded/needed by science applications and evolving observing system requirements.

An autonomous long range platform to unveil the oceans.
