Research priorities

OFI's ocean research focuses on:

  • Changes — research examines key aspects of atmosphere-ocean interaction, resulting ocean dynamics, and shifting ecosystems
  • Solutions — research focuses on effective approaches to resource development that are sustainable, globally competitive, societally acceptable, and resilient to change

Research benefits

OFI research will help:

  • Improve prediction and mitigation of major storms
  • Manage human activities as they relate to ocean resources
  • Improve the potential for fisheries and aquaculture industries to meet global seafood demand in a sustainable manner
  • Strengthen marine safety
  • Transform how we monitor the ocean with new data capture and IT tools
  • Make marine conservation measures more resilient to climate change
