As one of the nation’s premier academic oceanographic institutions, the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO) educates marine scientists, students, policymakers, business leaders and citizens and helps develop the knowledge and skills necessary to address present and future marine challenges.

This mission is accomplished through an integrated program of research, education and public outreach. Field and ship-based observations, including time-series studies coupled with laboratory work and modeling, provide a comprehensive approach to studying coastal and blue water oceans throughout the world.


After a lengthy pause, we are delighted to bring back this GSO signature in a new format. MARITiMES will alert you to developments in ocean science and management, with a focus on the work of the Narragansett Bay Campus community. Each monthly issue will present a quick summary of top stories, upcoming events and trending topics—always with an opportunity to dive deeper.

MARITiMES is a compilation of oceanographic news sent to your inbox, ready for exploration at your convenience!
