Education and training is one of the department’s principal mandates, and is achieved by providing a stimulating, research-intensive environment in which students can develop and thrive. The uniqueness of the department’s resources provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary training in cold ocean research, whether it is related to physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology; biological and chemical oceanography; behavioral and population ecology; or aquaculture and fisheries.
Welcome to the Department of Ocean Sciences. The Department is located at the Ocean Sciences Centre (OSC) in Logy Bay, which is approximately 15km from the main campus.
Faculty members and graduate students from Memorial University are among the recipients of grants and scholarships awarded recently by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
After 35 years with the Ocean Science Centre’s field services unit, diver Robert (Bob) O’Donnell has hung up his dry suit for the last time.
The dive shop, now maintained by dive technicians Andrew Perry and George Bishop, first opened at Memorial in the early 70s.
