Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping (CCOM)/NOAA Joint Hydrographic Center (JHC)

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

Atlantic Marine Aquaculture Center (AMAC)

A regional program established in partnership with NOAA that provides research and development to stimulate an environmentally sustainable offshore aquaculture industry in New England and nationwide

Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS)

A multidisciplinary scientific research institute dedicated to understanding the integrated behavior of the Earth and its surrounding universe

Marine & Ocean Sciences

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.
