Research Expeditions

Work at sea is an essential part of oceanography. Bigelow scientists travel thousands of nautical miles aboard research vessels every year to gather and analyze data, conduct shipboard experiments, and study ocean ecosystem dynamics in the field. Expeditions currently underway are highlighted here. (Visit the Expeditions Archive page and individual Senior Research Scientist pages for more information about recent and upcoming expeditions at sea.)
