There is an emphasis on estuarine cir- culation, waves, marine natural products chemistry, marine ecology and geochemistry. Oceanography programs accept students with a B.S. or M.S. in science or applied science.

The excellent facilities at IMS are available for commer- cial and research use, supported by a broad range of techni- cal and marine expertise. Facilities include a marine research platform in Langstone Harbour; research vessel RV Calypso for inshore work; aquarium rooms with temperature-controlled flow through seawater systems; teaching laboratory and lecture theater with capacity for 120 delegates; suite of general, molecular, histology and sediment laboratories; and terrestrial exposure and abrasion testing facilities. Degrees offered: B.S., M.Bio., M.S., M.Rs. Contact: facilities/institute-of-marine-sciences. BERMUDA Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences Ferry Reach, Bermuda The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) is an in- dependent U.S. nonprofit research organization committed to scientific and educational excellence. BIOS offers under- graduate- and graduate-level summer courses in biological oceanography, marine biology, tropical marine ecology, marine ecotoxicology and global environmental change, to name a few. Scholarships are available for all courses. Credit can be arranged through some universities. An active gradu- ate intern program is supported by BIOS fellowships. The scientific library has more than 16,000 volumes, with sub- scriptions to more than 150 periodicals and journals. BIOS has accommodations for up to 110 visiting investigators and teaching laboratories for groups of up to 20 students. Mul- tiuser equipment includes, among other things, 24 dissecting microscopes, video and 35-millimeter microscopy to 160X, controlled environment rooms, radiation lab, the 165-foot RV Atlantic Explorer and four inshore vessels. Bermuda is only a two-hour flight from virtually any city on the Eastern seaboard. Once here, scientists need only sail two hours out to reach depths 2 miles down, making it an ideal location for deepwater sampling. Bermuda is also sur- rounded by 200 square miles of coral reef that support a full range of marine flora and fauna and resultant inshore water and coral reef research.

CANADA Dalhousie University Halifax, Canada The marine affairs program (MAP) at Dalhousie University provides an inquiring and stimulating interdisciplinary learn- ing environment to advance the sustainable use of the world's diverse coastal and ocean environments. MAP offers profes- sional education at the graduate level for both current and aspiring ocean and coastal managers. Through the master of marine management degree pro- gram, we seek to develop outstanding marine management professionals, through promotion of synergies between the humanities, social sciences, professions and natural sciences. Graduates of MAP will demonstrate broad awareness of the need for interdisciplinary knowledge and viewpoints, as well as the skills and tools needed to make informed decisions. MAP works with other educational, governmental, NGO and private sector organizations to promote and conduct timely and relevant interdisciplinary research in a broad ar- ray of scholarly topics that are attractive to MAP students and researchers. Through its worldwide network of faculty, gradu- ates, and associates, the research and expertise developed in the MAP program has, and continues to, influence marine policy decisions around the globe.

McGill University Montreal, Canada Oceanographic research is carried out in one of three depart- ments within the university: biology, atmospheric and oce- anic sciences, and Earth and planetary sciences. Research- ers and their students work in a broad diversity of marine environments, including the Arctic regions, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the St. Lawrence River and estuary, as well as the Caribbean Sea. Master's and doctoral degrees are of- fered in the three departments, with specialization in marine biology, physical oceanography and marine geochemistry. McGill University operates a marine field station, the Bellairs Institute, in Barbados. Post-doctoral fellowships are awarded each year to work at the field station. A consortium of three universities in the province of Quebec—McGill (Montreal), Laval (Quebec City) and the Institute of Marine Science (Ri- mouski)—owns a research vessel that serves this research community on the Canadian East Coast.
