Our multidisciplinary shipwreck study (SCHEMA) conducted on board the R/V Pelican and supported by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement and the Naval Research Laboratory Platform support program is being featured on the University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) main page. Ever wonder how oceanographic research gets done? What ships are available for research purposes? What kind of studies happen in the coastal, estuarine and marine environment? Learn about this and more at http://www.unols.org. UNOLS is an organization of 62 academic institutions and National Laboratories involved in oceanographic research and joined for the purpose of coordinating oceanographic ships’ schedules and research facilities. George Mason University became a non-operator member of UNOLS in October of 2014.
