CMS Research :: Coastal & Marine Geophysics

Research conducted in the Coastal and Marine Geophysics Laboratory (CMGL) at CMS is global in scope and involves the collection and analysis of a broad range of geophysical data. Major research focus areas include marine tectonics (mid-ocean ridge and subduction zone processes), seabed classification (estuarine and coastal ocean benthic habitats), and geohazards (active faults, submarine landslides and tsunamis, volcanic eruptions).
