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