Our Research

The Department of Marine Sciences brings together research within Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Oceanography, and Preservation of Marine Cultural Heritage.

We have research both within single subjects, and within larger trans-disciplinary research areas. We have nationally unique research projects, and participate in international research expeditions. Our ultra-modern marine infrastructure gives us unique access to technology, laboratories and instruments that permit research at the highest international level.
