Your Research 

where does your science

take you?

Short Survey

GMSO is about facilitating science at sea. Our mission is to expand ocean research opportunities for all scientists and explorers. How? By providing efficient, capable, and professionally staffed research vessels. We are assembling a fleet of small research vessels (SRVs, 60′ – 110′). Once conditions allow, our ships will be strategically placed to meet regional demand around the country.

In order to better serve the ocean science community, we would like to learn about the equipment and capabilities you need for your at-sea research. Please take this short survey and tell us what kind of research you anticipate conducting and where. Your responses will help us determine where to position ships as they come online and make sure they are compatible to your needs. Please click here to better understand our vessel capabilities and explore the rest of the website to learn what we’re all about.

We greatly appreciate your time and input!
