Introduction

Science related to seas and oceans, or oceanography, although is more than a century old, due to complexity of access to various parts of it, still is at the beginning of its development. Oceanography is compromised of more than understanding the movement of ships on water; nevertheless, the main aim of learning oceans in history has concerned this. Knowledge of winds was the main field of research for old navigators. However, gradually in order to have a better understanding of physical oceanography, many innovations and creations in form of meters, measuring parameters, and vessels has taken place. Today, more than three thousand and seven hundred parameters from aquatic environments, sediment, and ocean atmosphere are measured in oceanography research centers, and likewise, everyday it is added to their numbers. Effective ocean and sea management requires enough scientific knowledge and righteous understanding of natural processes and reactionary interaction among sea, land, and the human being, that is procured through measuring, monitoring, and studying this environment. The Iranian National Institute for Oceanography with the aim of advancing marine activities - at national, regional, and global levels – was established in 1992. In 2010, with the approval of the board of trustees of the Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology, the Marine Science Research Center was formed along with three departments of Marine Living Science  Dept.Marine Non-living Science  Dept., and Marine Policy Dept.  

The departments being equipped with physical oceanography, marine chemistry, marine biotechnology, marine biology, and marine geology laboratories are found in each of headquarter complex located in Tehran and in research stations in Nowshahr, Boshehr, Charbahar and Bandarabbas. The main activities on the Marine Science  Research Center are the following:

·          Monitoring Marine Environments

·          Studying, forecasting, and warning of marine hazards

·          Development of marine scientific technologies

·          Climate change and climate rehabilitation of seas and oceans

·          Health of marine environments

·          Studying in the legal, management, economic and policy fields

·          Expansion of knowledge of oceanography along with offering expert and general education

·          Offering scientific services for taking optimal advantage of seas and oceans
