- Center for Marine Science
Dedicated to providing an environment that fosters a multidisciplinary approach to questions in basic marine research. The mission of the center is to promote basic and applied research in the fields of oceanography, coastal and wetland studies, marine biomedical and environmental physiology, and marine biotechnology and aquaculture.
An underwater ocean laboratory located in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The laboratory is deployed three and half miles offshore, at a depth of 60 feet, next to spectacular coral reefs. Scientists live in Aquarius during ten-day missions using saturation diving to study and explore our coastal ocean. During the missions, Aquarius offers three live streaming web cams as well as a blog updated by the Aquanauts.
- Marine Mammal Stranding Program
Investigates strandings to improve our understanding of the biology of marine mammals that inhabit our local waters, to enhance their conservation and to educate students through participation in marine mammal stranding investigations.
