Around the World
MLML has a rich history of conducting research in the local environments in close proximity to the lab in central Monterey Bay (e.g. Elkhorn Slough, Monterey Submarine Canyon, and the kelp beds of Monterey and Santa Cruz), in addition to far flung locales such as Antarctica, Alaska, Bering Sea, Indian Ocean, Baja, Chile, Philippines, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and throughout the seas. The former 135’ R/V Point Sur that MLML operated for the National Science Foundation mostly operated in the California Current System, but also ventured to the coasts of Antarctica, Alaska, and Hawaii. Scientists from MLML continue to explore research ideas around the world.
