UNH Dives In To Marine Science
The University of New Hampshire has started a new school of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, focusing on newer topics such as adaptations to climate change and coastal planning, in addition to marine biology and oceanography.
The school is the first interdisciplinary one at UNH and will provide graduate and undergraduate courses.
The school operates two research vessels as well as numerous smaller boats. It maintains the Judd Gregg Marine Research Complex in New Castle, the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory on Great Bay in Durham, and the Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory on campus.
Nearly 70 faculty members from 14 departments in three colleges teach marine and ocean engineering-related courses to 300 undergraduate and 100 graduate students.
