Marine Geosciences

robotic arm on seafloor The Marine Geosciences Section supports research on processes that occur on and below the seafloor and at the water/sediment/rock interface. The section also supports facilities dedicated to such research.

The international Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) explores the Earth's crust beneath the ocean revealing the composition, structure, and history of the submerged portion of Earth's surface. The Marine Geology and Geophysics program supports research on all aspects of geology and geophysics of the ocean basins and margins, as well as the Great Lakes.
