Shoals Marine Laboratory
The Shoals Marine Laboratory (SML) is located on the Gulf of Maine’s Appledore Island, six miles off the coast of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The field station caters to undergraduate students interested in focusing on marine topics in their college majors. The largest facility of its kind in the world, SML is operated jointly by UNH and Cornell University.
SML offers summer-credit courses and internships in areas ranging from marine biology to sustainable engineering. The island campus includes labs equipped with microscopes and flow-through seawater for maintaining organisms. The island’s “green grid” incorporates a wind turbine and solar photovoltaic array, making it a site for sustainable engineering projects as well as field studies in marine and intertidal ecology, migratory bird banding, and other biological research.
