Centers and Specialty Labs

Specialized centers and labs foster relationships and combine resources to advance the knowledge of marine and atmospheric science.

These include:
  • The Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) brings together the resources of partner universities with those of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). These institutions tackle research projects, share information and encourage public outreach programs, including student internships. 
  • CIMAS OceanScope program teams up with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines to equip shps with gear for collecting oceanographic and atmospheric data.
  • The Center for Southeastern Tropical Advance Remote Sensing (CTSTARS) has expanded access to real-time, high-resolution satelite imagery. Covering all of Florida, the eastern U.S., all of the Caribbean Basin and a significant portion of South America and the eastern Pacific, CSTARS has assisted with Hurricane Katrina assessment, earthquake efforts in Haiti, and in the monitoring of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
  • Relationships of Effects of Cardiac Outcomes in fish for Validation of Ecological Risk (RECOVER) examines the detrimental effects of oil on two ecologically and economically important species of fish in the Gulf of Mexico: Mahi-mahi anad Red drum.
