Centers, Labs, and Programs

Research at the intersection of biological and microbial oceanography and functional genomics.

AGAGE has been measuring the composition of the global atmosphere continuously since 1978.
 

Organic molecules in natural waters can help us to understand the global cycling of biologically important elements like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus.

Focuses on the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in marine systems.

We examine the diversity and activity of microbial life in the deep sea , including within the deepest ocean trenches.

Focused on the development of an understanding of interaction of light with seawater constituents, variability in ocean optical properties, and propagation of light within the ocean and across the air-water boundary.
