Research Theme: Oceans

Here is an atmospheric-level view of all the Oceans
research and happenings at INSTAAR.

Research on any aspect of the world’s oceans, from the sea surface to the seafloor. Currents and circulation, water temperature, coastal processes, marine sediments, ocean chemistry, tides, sea ice, and water quality, among other subjects, are all part of the Oceans category.
