Mission

ISMAR conducts research in mediterranean, oceanic and polar regions, focusing on the following themes:

  • the evolution of oceans and their continental margins, studying submarine volcanoes, faults and slides and their potential impacts onshore
  • the influence of climate change on oceanic circulation, acidification, bio-geochemical cycles and marine productivity
  • submarine habitats and ecology, and the increasing pollution of coastal and deep-sea environments
  • the evolution of fish stocks with a view to keeping commercial fishing within sustainable limits and improving mariculture and aquaculture practices
  • natural and anthropogenic factors impacting economically and socially on coastal systems from pre-history to the industrial epoch.
