Shaped By Place: Cold Oceans and Northern Strength at Memorial University

 

Memorial University has been shaped by wind, water, and ice.

Our strength in cold-ocean and Northern research, teaching, and public engagement didn’t just happen: it’s the result of nearly 100 years of working here, in some of Earth’s coldest, wettest, and harshest environments. With a campus in Labrador as well as sites across the province, and partnerships across Northern Canada and the Circumpolar North, we are on the ground--and in the ocean!

And we’re not working on our own. Meaningful partnerships anchor our work in community, and help address both local opportunities and global challenges.

Visit one of the tabs above (or click an image below) to learn more about the Cold Oceans and Northern Strength initiative, our exceptional People, world-changing Projects, meaningful Partnerships, internal and external Funding Opportunities, one-of-a-kind Facilities and our unique Programs, all related to cold oceans and the North.
