Ocean Exploration, Remote Sensing, Biogeography Lab

The Ocean Exploration, Remote Sensing and Biogeography Laboratory (ORB Lab), led by Dr. Matthew J. Oliver, extends research to the science community and public in a variety of ways.

  • Danielle Haulsee tags a shark.

  • ORB Lab uses global visualization tools to plan glider missions.

  • The ORB Lab is investigating the local physical processes that affect how Adélie penguins forage for food.

  • Matt Oliver prepares to deploy a glider in Antarctica.

  • ORB Lab member Matt Breece uses gliders to help locate Atlantic sturgeon in the costal environment. Permit No. 16507-01

  • Megan Cimino and Matt Oliver doing research in Antarctica

Prospective Graduate Students

We are always on the lookout for new students that are excited about the interface of oceanography, ecology, and biology. Our most successful students have strong quantitative and communication skills. Resumes that indicate strengths in these areas are preferred. We get many inquiries about working in our lab, and the best ones are able to clearly express how their acceptance into ORB Lab would advance one or more of our goals. Our goals are diverse, but are articulated in the publications produced by our students: Orb Lab Publications
