Data Center Description
The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) was founded in 1987 by David Packard.
The mission of MBARI is to achieve and maintain a position as a world center for advanced research and education in ocean science and technology, and to do so through the development of better instruments, systems, and methods for scientific research in the deep waters of the ocean. MBARI emphasizes the peer relationship between engineers and scientists as a basic principle of its operation. All of the activities of MBARI must be characterized by excellence, innovation, and vision.
MBARI's current efforts span eight research themes, including: benthic processes, midwater research, upper ocean biogeochemistry, MBARI Ocean Observing System (MOOS), remotely operated vehicle enhancements and upgrades, new insitu instruments, infrastructure support, and information dissemination and outreach.
