Ecosystems and Oceanography Division

The Ecosystems and Oceanography Division (EOD) conducts research to advance our understanding of the structure and dynamics of central North Pacific marine ecosystems. In particular, we seek to understand how marine populations change in response to both direct changes in their predators and prey as well as from broader habitat-based changes in the ocean climate including El Niño, La Niña, and other interannual or decadal events.
