University of Miami Officially Opens New Research Facility on Virginia Key Campus
Oct 6 14
The University of Miami officially opened its research complex on the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science campus. The seawater-equipped complex supports groundbreaking, ocean and atmospheric research on hurricanes, coastal structures, marine life, human health and disease, and more. The 1,000 gallons of seawater being pumped every minute into research laboratories is the lifeblood of the new $50 million Marine Technology and Life Sciences Seawater Complex. The 86,000-square foot LEED-certified facility supports research in two critical focus areas: air-sea interactions and marine life science. The Glassell Family Foundation generously provided support for one of the two buildings of the Seawater Complex, the Alfred C. Glassell, Jr., SUSTAIN (Surge-Structure-Atmosphere Interaction) research facility, the only laboratory in the world capable of generating category-5 hurricane-force winds in a 3-D test environment. The 38,000-gallon SUSTAIN tank provides scientists and engineers with access to critical observations within a realistic but controlled environment to study the impacts of hurricane force winds and other extreme weather events on coastal communities. Located in the other building of the Seawater Complex, the Marine Life Science Center brings together Rosenstiel School's internationally recognized research in tropical marine biology and biomedicine under one roof. The Center provides a dedicated space for maintaining and studying living marine animals, including several species of fish and corals. Cutting-edge coral reef research, for which the Rosenstiel School is renowned, focuses on assessing and measuring the effects of climate change and ocean acidification on global reef-building processes. The space also houses the NIH-funded National Resource for Aplysia, the only facility in the world that cultures and raises sea shares (Aplysia californica) for scientific research in aging, memory, and learning.
