Oceanic Studies Group
Academic Unit: Environmental Corporation
Colombian Ministry of Science
We carry out undergraduate and postgraduate research projects on Sea Sciences. - We deliver extension services in areas such as oceanography, ecology, and integrated management.
We organize and participate in regional, national, and international academic events on physical, chemical, biological, geological, and social oceanography. Through teaching and research, the group contributes to generating a “research culture.” It encourages awareness about the conservation, recovery, and sustainable use of natural resources in Colombia's coastal and maritime areas. The continuous development and strengthening of the group's research areas—and the strategies it proposes—contribute to its consolidation as a leading research group regionally.
