的 UOG 海洋实验室, established as a research unit of UOG in 1970, plays an 在国家和区域海洋研究中发挥重要作用.
Members of the 海洋实验室 faculty enhance their research activities through 与其他美国同事的个人合作.S. 国外机构 并向世界各地的游客开放这些设施.
的 primary mission of the 海洋实验室 faculty is basic and applied research on the biology of tropical marine organisms, with emphasis on the conservation and development of marine resources of the near-shore waters of 关岛 and 密克罗尼西亚.
Graduate and undergraduate students play an important role in these research activities. Community service is promoted through the activities of a Marine Extension Agent, 研究人员和研究生.
教师, students, researchers at the 海洋实验室 collaborate on a variety of research topics including coral genetic connectivity across the Pacific, 鱼eries health, sea turtle nesting behavior, coral diseases, endolithic algae, coral nurseries, diver effects on coral reefs, shark genetic connectivity within the Marianas, 更多的.
的 海洋实验室 is administered by a director that is selected from the faculty 每三年轮换一次. 有15名全职员工 海洋实验室: ten full-time faculty, two clerical staff, two marine technicians, 还有潜水安全官. 文理学院的两位教员， a marine microbiologist and a behavioral geneticist, are closely affiliated with the 还有实验室. 多位博士后研究助理，由联邦政府资助 助学金，也与教师合作.
的 pg电子海洋实验室 is presently housed in three buildings. 的 设施全年使用. 两层，1800平方米的研究大楼包含一个 physiology laboratory, an analytical research laboratory, a lecture hall, conference 教室，教员实验室和办公室，学生办公室. 科技大楼 includes wood and metal shop facilities and storage for boats and SCUBA equipment. 的 third building (1100 m²) is a shared facility between the 海洋实验室 and the Water and Energy 研究 Institute (WERI), which houses our reference collection, a genetics/molecular biology lab and additional office space for postdoctoral investigators 和游客.
海洋实验室设备齐全. 分析实验室 supports programs in chemical ecology and natural products chemistry, contains two 高效液相色谱，气相色谱-质谱联用，冻干器，三台旋转蒸发器. 分子实验室 is well equipped for DNA sequencing, with two PCR thermocyclers, a Li-Cor DNA sequencer, digital image acquisition system, electrophoresis equipment, refrigerated high-speed 离心机，还有一台超级离心机. 其他实验室有紫外/可见分光光度计， respirometers, dissecting and compound microscopes including fluorecence and video acessories, an ultra-pure water system, low-temperature freezers, a refrigerated incubator, an autoclave, as well as all the surveying, collecting, preserving equipment typically 在海军陆战队的一个野战站发现的. 闪烁计数器和组织学设备 大学其他院系有哪些课程. 大学最近购买了 共聚焦显微镜，它被安置在海洋实验室.
的 海洋实验室 also maintains a flowing seawater system for the culture and 生物体的维持. 车间和技术服务部由两名海军陆战队员组成 提供研究支持的技术人员. 珊瑚礁和相关的栖息地很容易 accessible from shore or by the laboratory's three outboard vessels: a 21-ft Boston Whaler号，19英尺的Bertram Carribean号，14英尺的McKee Craft Montenegro号.
关岛, a Territory of the United States, is located in the 西方 太平洋 at 北纬13°，东经144°. 关岛是马里亚纳群岛最南端，也是最大的岛屿.
的 island has a population of approximately 137,000 and is administered by an elected 当地政府. 经济高度依赖旅游业(人口超过140万 每年参观人数). 有往返夏威夷的定期航班， Japan, the Philippines, Australia, Bali, Commonwealth of the 北马里亚纳群岛, the Federated States of 密克罗尼西亚, the 马绍尔群岛, 瑙鲁, 帕劳, with connections 整个亚洲和南太平洋.
的 530-km² island rises some 400 m above sea level, has both dense jungles and open 萨凡纳，周围环绕着珊瑚礁. 气温介于 24° C and 34° C, sea surface temperatures range between 27° C and 29° C year round.
的 coral reefs are among the most diverse in the world and provide excellent opportunities 为研究. 的 marine flora and fauna of 关岛 include about 377 species of scleractinian corals, 237 species of benthic marine algae, 950 species of coral reef 鱼es; 到目前为止，已经鉴定出1700多种软体动物. 已知船舶总数 迄今为止，关岛的生物多样性已超过5600种. pg电子 海洋实验室在美国是独一无二的.S. 拥有现代化设施的海洋实验室 在这个丰富的生物地理范围内.
密克罗尼西亚 is a subregion of Oceania, comprising thousands of small islands in the 西方 太平洋. 主要有四个方面 群岛 还有许多离岛.
密克罗尼西亚地区包括五个主权独立的国家 Federated States of 密克罗尼西亚 (which is usually also called "密克罗尼西亚" for short 不要与整个地区混淆), 帕劳, 基里巴斯, 马绍尔群岛, 瑙鲁还有三个 U.S. 领土 在北部: 北马里亚纳群岛, 关岛, 威克岛.
Parrot鱼 numbers in 关岛 have decreased by 30 percent over the past decade, according to a pg电子 Sea Grant-funded study conducted by researchers from the UOG 海洋实验室.
两个你.S. Department of Energy funding sources allow UOG to participate in research toward harnessing energy from the ocean
Interested in marine science, a Czech University student connected with UOG to conduct her thesis.
的 team gave presentations about their efforts to help revive 关岛's reefs through ocean nursery culturing and planting corals.
的 '18 biology graduate will be studying ocean acidification in a master's program at King Abdullah University.
