Major Research Themes and Special Topics

Research Themes

Research in JIMAR has been concentrated in eight areas, chosen with the approval of JIMAR's Advisory Board. The themes are: ecosystem forecasting, ecosystem monitoring, ecosystem-based management, protection and restoration of resources, equatorial oceanography, climate research and impacts, tropical meteorology, and tsunami and other long-period ocean waves. Each of these themes continue to be of major scientific, economic, and social importance and each has readily identifiable participants from both parent institutions.
