The Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences (IMCS) conducts and integrates research efforts on estuarine, marine, and coastal processes for New Jersey and the surrounding region. Current research themes include establishment of Long-Term Ecosystem Observatories (LEOs), fish and shellfish biology and ecology, estuarine and nearshore ecology, biogeochemistry, aquaculture, genetics of marine populations, coastal physical oceanography, coastal geology, hydrothermal vent research, pinelands ecology, and deep-sea research. The institute features advanced field and laboratory facilities such as a real-time satellite remote sensing laboratory; high-performance computers; a coastal observation network; and annular and racetrack flumes for studies of interactions among flow, sediment geochemistry and transport, and organism behavior and growth. IMCS faculty advise students in oceanography, environmental sciences, ecology and evolution, geology, and several areas of engineering.
