Centers, Labs, and Projects

A long-term systematic observing system of the physical state of the global ocean.
Buckingham Lab
Performs research in acoustic theory as it relates to applications such as oceanography and physics.
CLIVAR and Carbon Hydrographic Office
Primary mission is to deliver the highest possible quality global CTD and hydrographic data to users.
Coastal Observing Research and Development Center (CORDC)
Develops and implements coastal observatories, serves as a science and technical interface with local, state, and federal agencies, and manages various system components.
Jaffe Laboratory for Underwater Imaging
Marine Bioacoustics Lab
We develop and use new, non-lethal acoustic methods and technologies to promote a better understanding of highly exploited and endangered marine species.
Ocean Time Series Group
Specializes in oceanographic research (physical oceanography and interdisciplinary problems) with timeseries observations using moored sensors.
U.S. Global Ocean Carbon and Repeat Hydrography Program
Part of the international GO-SHIP program, which carries out a systematic and global re-occupation of select hydrographic sections to quantify changes in storage and transport of heat, fresh water, carbon dioxide (CO2), and related parameters
Project Recover
A collaborative effort to enlist 21st century science and technology to find the final underwater resting places of Americans missing in action since World War II.
Multiscale Ocean Dynamics (MOD)
A specialized team of oceanographers, engineers, and graduate students solving vexing problems in ocean physics and biology.  We develop, build, and deploy novel scientific instrumentation to observe the ocean in new ways.
