Building on the success of more than a century of research and education, BIOS is committed to addressing pressing global issues in oceanography, marine conservation, and ocean health. BIOS maintains a diverse portfolio of research activities that allow our knowledge to be shared both locally and internationally.
Research at BIOS spans the branches of oceanography--biological, chemical, physical, and geological--and includes work in the related disciplines of environmental science, resource monitoring and conservation, atmospheric science, and risk prediction.
Education is a key aspect of BIOS’s mission, directly linking our scientific research to hands-on learning opportunities for students. Our courses and internships provide high quality mentorship and experiential learning and research opportunities to university students from around the world as students engage directly with scientists at our world-class research institute.
