About Department of Marine Sciences
The Department of Marine Sciences brings together research focuses within oceanography, geology, chemistry, biology and conservation.
This research is carried out both within individual subjects and in larger multidisciplinary projects. We have a number of nationally unique research fields, with the flagship being our ultra-modern infrastructure for marine research and education, with research vessel Skagerak, and two modern research stations, Kristineberg and Tjärnö.
Its operations are interdisciplinary in nature and involve both other departments at the Faculty of Science and other University of Gothenburg faculties, as well as other educational institutions in Sweden and worldwide. By working together with research colleagues from other scientific disciplines, the department will also be able to take on the big global challenges.
The department’s vision is to be a national leader and to carry out activities of the highest international class within the field of marine sciences.
All that happen within the marine and the maritime areas within University of Gothenburg is highlighted by the Centre for Sea and Society.
