MBARI scientists study the fundamental chemical properties in the ocean, such as oxygen, pH, nutrients, and chlorophyll. Accurate chemical data allow scientists to ask essential questions about ocean ecosystems, observe ocean health and productivity, and ultimately monitor how the ocean may be changing over time.

Monitoring elemental cycles of carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen in the vast, dynamic ocean is incredibly challenging. MBARI scientists and engineers collaborate to develop and build innovative technology that provides a more detailed picture of ocean chemistry. These data are critical to improving fisheries and climate models, as well as monitoring, and even forecasting, the effects of ocean warming and ocean acidification on marine life.

These teams and projects are working to observe the chemical building blocks of ocean ecosystems to inform science and policy worldwide.
