Targeting general and specific research needs, FHL offers an array of research facilities including:

  • Research and teaching laboratories with access to supplies and equipment.
  • A stockroom that provides most reagents, labware, photographic materials, and small items of equipment at a nominal charge to students or investigators.
  • A new FHL Ocean Observatory funded by an NSF grant to characterize the temporal environmental processes occurring in the ocean.
  • The FHL Scientific Photo Gallery includes marine science related photos provided as a resource for teachers and students at all levels and stages of their education.
  • A Campbell Scientific Weather Station installed at Cantilever Point on the FHL campus.This includes underwater sensors (-1.7 m below MLLW) and temperature loggers deployed along a vertical transect (20 ft to 80 ft).
  • FHL has a new Bruker Skyscan 1173 CT scanner in the Karel F. Liem Imaging Facility that can image specimens up to 140mm in diameter and 200mm in length with a resolution of 7 µm. This tool will allow visualization of morphology at an unprecedented fine scale level for researc
  • FHL Ocean Acidification Environmental Laboratory consists of three major components;
    • the in-water mesocosms installed off the FHL
    • indoor mesocosms with temperature
      and pH control and
    • an analytical chemistry
  • The Synoptic Collection is a collection of preserved marine animals and plants is available as an aid to identification and location. In addition, files of collecting, study-site surveys and color transparencies of local marine life and habitats are maintained for reference.
