BetterWorld is happy to welcome Bigelow Laboratory to the BetterWorld customer family! Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences is a nonprofit research organization based on the coast of Maine which studies the ocean. Their research ranges from microbial oceanography (examining biological productivity and phytoplankton community dynamics in the world’s oceans at the molecular level - phew!) to large-scale biogeochemical processes that drive interactions because ocean ecosystems and global environmental conditions.
Through their research, they work to understand and illuminate the key processes driving our global ocean ecosystems, their evolution and their relationship to the rest of life on Earth.
Bigelow Laboratory was named after Henry Bigelow, a pioneering ocean researcher who laid the foundations for modern oceanography. Bigelow’s work stressed the interdependence of biology, chemistry, and physical science in studying the ocean. Today the Laboratory trains the next generation of ocean scientists.
Their research and programs take Bigelow scientists around the world to every ocean and to the polar seas. With an upcoming expansion into a new 64-acre site for their Ocean Science and Education Campus at the East Boothbay, the Laboratory is growing and widening their research and educational impact.
We’re proud to welcome Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences to the BetterWorld family, one of many organizations working to educate and help preserve our environment for generations to come.
