A NOAA-supported national center of expertise in the fields of coastal hydrography and advanced coastal ocean mapping that fosters a new generation of hydrographers and ocean mapping scientists and develops and evaluates a wide range of state-of-the-art hydrographic and ocean mapping technologies and applications
Marine and ocean sciences research at UNH explores the biological and physical aspects of the world’s seas. Seeking to understand the complex factors that comprise and influence the ocean, the areas of study include estuaries, the critical zones where the ocean meets the freshwater sources that feed into it. Developing new tools to extend our ability to visualize, measure and predict ocean characteristics and events is an important focus of the research.
UNH research has had a notably positive impact on the community across a broad range of research areas, due to the efforts of faculty, students, and staff working in the colleges and focused research centers and institutes.
