MBARI scientists are dedicated to improving scientific understanding of oceanic biology, chemistry, and geology. Much of their effort revolves around collaborations with MBARI engineers, with the aim of developing new tools, systems and approaches for studying and exploring the deep sea.

Monterey Canyon and the surrounding waters of Monterey Bay provide an unsurpassed natural laboratory for many of these efforts. MBARI researchers are also found far afield, on scientific expeditions to locations such as Antarctica, the Hawaiian archipelago, the Marianas Trench, and off the South African coast. MBARI technology travels as widely as its staff, assisting scientists and engineers in their attempts to solve unresolved mysteries in ocean science.
