A central element in Memorial's plan to become one of the world's leading marine universities, the Ocean Sciences Centre was formed in April, 1988, by the union of the Marine Sciences Research Laboratory (MSRL) and the Newfoundland Institute for Cold Ocean Sciences (NICOS). An ocean sciences research unit within the Faculty of Science, the Ocean Sciences Centre is staffed by almost 40 professional scientists, many of whom are cross-appointed faculty from University departments. The main laboratories, over 4000m2 in total, are located directly on the North Atlantic Ocean at Logy Bay, approximately 9.6 kilometers from the main campus, with other smaller labs at various locations elsewhere. The Centre's small boat, the Karl & Jackie, is berthed at Long Pond on Conception Bay and is used in field investigations.
The Ocean Sciences Centre research programs take advantage of the ocean features that make the Newfoundland region a unique and important part of the world's oceans. These include the Labrador Current and sea ice and icebergs (which collectively exercise a major impact on global climate and weather), some of the world's most productive fishing grounds and strategically important offshore resources. The region encompasses areas of broad-scale active mixing between cold and warm ocean waters, many rivers with very low nutrient and sediment loads, very deep ocean areas close to land, large fjord systems, and direct access to ice-covered oceans and the Arctic. The fauna contains animals with unique cold ocean adaptations, important marine mammal populations and some of the largest seabird colonies remaining in the world.
