Targeting specific research needs, FHL offers an array of focused research facilities including:
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 (20ft to 80ft).
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 research.
