Research conducted from the Marine Field Station spans the majority of the marine science disciplines, with focus areas highlighted below.  A major objective of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NAMS) is to involve undergraduate students in faculty and staff-led research. Providing undergraduates with practical and meaningful research experiences strengthens their skill sets and better prepares them for entry-level positions and/or to continue to advanced studies.  NAMS faculty and staff provide research opportunities through externally-funding (grant) projects, independent studies projects, summer research experiences, and long-term monitoring programs.  Many research efforts initiated in the past 5-10 years are still underway and new projects come about on a regular basis.
