Cannon Laboratory

Cannon Lab researchIn this building, marine scientists conduct research on problems ranging from harmful algal blooms to global climate change and on organisms from archaea to blue crabs.

The first floor contains a 40,000-liter recirculating seawater system, various aquaria, and well-equipped research laboratories including a state-of-the-art geochemical "clean lab" for measuring trace metals such as iron in seawater and sediments. The second floor contains the Marine Plant Biochemistry/ Biophysics Research Laboratory with four, walk-in, controlled-environment chambers for plant growth experiments and the Ocean Information Center, where databases for international climate research are maintained.

Additionally, the second floor includes a student computing site, the Interactive Television classroom link the Lewes campus with the Newark campus, the Delaware Aquaculture Resource Center, and the Marine Studies Library.
