Sept 26, 2017 – A science illustration student was inspired by a visit to MBARI to create a series of animations to show the inner workings of MBARI’s autonomous underwater vehicles.
Research and Administrative Assistant
Over the last few days we conducted three ROV dives and two AUV surveys at areas of geologic interest on the eastern Mackenzie Shelf that are called pingo-like features and mud volcanoes.
A look at the tools and methods we are using on this expedition to improve our understanding of subsurface geology and permafrost and gas hydrate distribution.
The expedition kicked off with members of the three science teams from KOPRI, MBARI, and the GSC assembling in Barrow, Alaska, and transferring, via helicopter, to the ship.
Can you guess this week’s mystery image?
June 26, 2017 – Found on the beach, this picture is sure to leave you scratching your head.
May 20, 2017 – An increasingly acidic ocean has been shown to affect many species, but the impacts on entire communities are more complicated.
Feb 13, 2017 – New research findings highlight a unique visual adaptation in a deep-sea squid, the cockeyed squid, which has eyes that are grossly different in size and structure.
Sept 22, 2016 – MBARI Adjunct Victoria Orphan has been named a 2016 MacArthur Fellow, in recognition of her work on microbial communities in extreme environments and their impact on the cycling of nutrients and energy through the oceans.
May 19, 2016 – This unusual hydrothermal vent is one of many discoveries from a Gulf of California expedition highlighted in the 2015 Annual Report. The publication also features several science and engineering projects conducted close to home in Monterey Bay and includes a preview of some of the institute’s emerging technologies.
May 2, 2016 – The smallest member of the MBARI seagoing fleet, the R/V Paragon, often runs multiple missions in a day.

Mar 17, 2016 – MBARI Scientist Ken Johnson and his Chemical Sensors Group are part of a large collaborative effort to place sensors in the Southern Ocean to monitor changing conditions. The video explains the technology used in this project.
MARS Operations Technician
Research programs at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) encompass the entire ocean, from the surface waters to the deep seafloor, and from the coastal zone to the open sea. The need to understand the ocean in all its complexity and variability drives MBARI's research and development efforts.
