ONR (Office of Naval Research)

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsors science and technology in support of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Founded in 1946, ONR today funds work at more than 450 universities, laboratories, and other organizations.

Rutgers University, Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences

The Departmentof Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University provides national and international leadership in marine science and is New Jersey's focal point foreducation, research, and service efforts in estuarine, coastal, and ocean environments.

Princeton University

The Program is jointly organized and run by Princeton University and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (GFDL/NOAA).


CESR is part of the Institute for Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP) at UCLA. Its members--Profs. Michael Ghil, James McWilliams (Center Head), David Neelin, and Richard Turco, together with their research associates in the IGPP, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences and the Institute of the Environment --have primary research interests in the physics and biogeochemistry of the Earth's atmosphere, cryosphere, and oceans. In addition, CESR is a base for broad, cooperative effort to develop, test, and apply a comprehensive numerical modeling capability for the Earth's climate--for periods extending over previous millennia, the present, and the coming centuries of anthropogenically induced changes.


Scripps Mission: To seek, teach, and communicate scientific understanding of the oceans, atmosphere, Earth, and other planets for the benefit of society and the environment.

University of Colorado

The University of Colorado in Bolder Colorado.

Oregon State University PO

Physical oceanographic research conducted by OSU faculty includes the development of specialized instrumentation, deployment and retrieval of these instruments at sea and processing of the data collected by the instruments. It also includes analysis and interpretation of the observations within a comprehensive theoretical framework that has been developed over the past century.
