Get Involved

There are many ways to be involved in supporting the work to better understand our oceans.

Interested in being a scientific collaborator or a partner site in the network?

Each partner site in the MarineGEO network is a regional catalyst for cooperative research, student training, citizen science, and public engagement, as each can serve as a gateway to parallel activities at other observatories around the globe. Understanding the strength and economy of scale in partnerships, the Smithsonian designed this initiative to build long-term strategic collaborations with scientists, existing research programs, government agencies, universities, NGOs, and national museums.

If you are potentially interested in collaborating or partnering and would like to know more, please email us at:
