Ocean Science and Technology



NRL's research is focused on understanding and modeling ocean, coastal, and littoral area hydro/thermodynamics, circulation, waves, ice dynamics, air-sea exchange, optics, and small and microscale processes; and on the investigation and application of microbiological processes to Navy problems. NRL's marine geosciences research provides digital databases, geoacoustics and geophysical models, and simulations to support training, system design, performance prediction, and operational needs of the Navy.
