Why Give?


GSO is one of the premier oceanographic institutions in the United States with a broad range of research, education, and outreach efforts. The cutting-edge research carried out at GSO ranges from basic research on how the ocean works to studying a broad set of topics related to environmental change. Climate change and global warming, rising sea level, ocean acidification, and possible species extinctions are but a few of the ocean topics that are of critical importance today, and ones that our faculty and graduate students are addressing and to which they are making important contributions. GSO has a very strong regional program focused on Narragansett Bay and surrounding waters.
