Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) was founded by David Packard. MBARI emphasizes the peer relationship between its scientists and engineers as abasic principle. The mission of MBARI is to become a world-class center for advanced research and education in ocean science and technology with the goal of developing better instruments, systems and methods for scientific research in deep waters of the ocean. MBARI studies and investigates cases of unusual deaths of birds, fish and mammals in the ocean ecosystem.

Monitoring river health using a robotic water sampler

Researchers from MBARI and the US Geological Survey (USGS) recently published a paper showing several ways that MBARI's Environmental Sample Processors (ESPs) can be used to monitor the health of rivers. The ESPs, which are ...

Harbor porpoises and seal bombs

Using recordings from MBARI's deep-sea hydrophone, marine-mammal researchers have found that the sounds of seal bombs could have significant impacts on the behavior of harbor porpoises in and around Monterey Bay. Seal bombs ...

Ocean research in a time of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it especially challenging for marine scientists to make observations and carry out experiments at sea. Research cruises have been cut back or canceled because it is difficult to keep a safe ...
