Ocean Sciences

The mission of the Department of Ocean Sciences is to conduct research on the physical, chemical and biological processes occurring in the world's oceans and at its interfaces, to train the next generation of informed citizens and professional scientists, and to apply our knowledge to societal challenges such as climate change and natural hazards.
The Ocean Sciences (OCE) department brings together the diversity of faculty and research programs needed to develop a multidisciplinary graduate program for the first time at the Rosenstiel School. One that can meet the scientific challenges presented by oceanic and climate change.
