Schmidt Ocean Institute works to advance the frontiers of global marine research by providing state of the art operational, technological, and informational support to the pioneering ocean science and technology development projects at sea.

Schmidt Ocean Institute is closely monitoring developments related to “COVID-19” (Coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2). The safety of our staff, research vessel Falkor crew, ROV SuBastian team, visiting scientists, artists, students, and extended community is of the highest importance. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the lead of the World Health Organization and national government and public health officials. During this time, we are still operating our science program and research expeditions and will continue to make available all science and data to the public, including the oceanographic expeditions off the coast of Australia through Schmidt Ocean Institute’s online resources.
