Oceanography

Durham's location along the Gulf of Maine provides an ideal backdrop for oceanographic research at UNH. Research is being conducted in physical, chemical, geological and biological oceanography and includes projects on hydrothermal vent systems along mid-ocean ridges, the cycling of sediments on beaches in New England, mapping of current profiles in the Gulf of Maine, earthquakes on oceanic transform faults and aquaculture. In addition, the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM) is actively developing and evaluating a wide range of state-of-the-art hydrographic and ocean mapping technologies. UNH maintains a 50 foot research vessel (R/V Gulf Challenger) and supports the interdisciplinary Marine Program.
