The MIO Oceanography research laboratory forms part of the OSU-Pytheas Institute and is under the joint direction of Aix-Marseille University, Toulon University, the CNRS and the IRD. Our goal is to better understand the oceanic system and its evolution in response to global changes.
MIO constitutes a center of expertise in marine biology, ecology, biodiversity, microbiology, halieutics, physics, chemistry, biogeochemistry and sedimentology. Our working environment is the world ocean, along with its continental, atmospheric and sediment interfaces.
