Earth & Marine Sciences Building

The Earth & Marine Sciences building on the main UCSC campus houses the Institute of Marine Sciences Marine Analytical and Plasma Analytical Laboratories and the Marine Analytical Lab Manager, and some of its IMS Researchers and affiliated faculty. Affiliated faculty have departmental laboratories to support their own groups of research staff, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students. IMS provides office and lab space for researchers and visiting scientists. Shared use lab and computing facilities are available for researchers, affiliated faculty, as well as for technicians and students. Also based here is the MEGAMER (Microbial Environmental Genomics, Applications, Modeling, Experimentation, & Remote Sensing) research facility. The Earth and Marine Sciences Building also houses the departments of Ocean Sciences, and Earth and Planetary Sciences. The Science and Engineering Library is a short distance away.
