  • Small vessel (12-30 feet) fleet

Mesocosm and Wet Lab Facilities

DISL has an outdoor mesccosm facility comprised of sixteen 1,000 gallon and four 5,000 gallon flow-through tanks. The Wet Lab facility is currently being upgraded and will have a modular system for conducting multi-stressor experiments (e.g. temperature, hypoxia and pH)

Tech Support (Instrumentation & Personnel)

DISL's Technical Support Department houses a marine chemical instrumentation lab with equipment to measure dissolved nutrients, total carbon and nitrogen, dissolved inorganic and organic carbons, total nitrogen in liquids, chlorophyll fluorescence, metals and some non-metal traces. The Technical Support Department can also assist with dive support (must be AAUS certified), as well as designing and adapting field equipment needed in support of research projects with a 3D printer and machine shop.

ARCOS Environmental Data

DISL has maintained and expanded the ARCOS network of sites since it first came online in 2003. Stations take basic meterological and hydrographic data. Visit https://arcos.disl.edu for more information.
