Marine Sciences Laboratory researches coastal issues

The Marine Sciences Laboratory (MSL), headquartered at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Sequim Marine Research Operations on Washington State's Olympic Peninsula, is the Department of Energy's only marine research laboratory. This unique facility and the capabilities of its researchers deliver science and technology that is critical to the nation's energy, environmental and security future.

Building upon a history of research related to marine and coastal resources, environmental chemistry, water resources modeling, ecotoxicology and biotechnology—and more recently, national and homeland security—the MSL is emerging as a leader in these three areas:

Enabling sustainable development of ocean energy [+ expand/ - collapse]

Understanding and mitigating long-term impacts of human activities, including climate change, on marine resources [+ expand/ - collapse]

Protecting coastal environments from security threats [+ expand/ - collapse]
