معامل شعبة البيئة البحرية
شعبة البيئة البحرية
:تتكون شعبة البيئة البحرية من تسع معامل وهى
- 1- معمل الطبيعة البحرية:
1- Physical Laboratory
Physical oceanography focuses on describing and understanding the evolving patterns of Mediterranean and Red Sea circulation and fluid motion, along with the distribution of its properties such as temperature, salinity and the concentration of dissolved chemical elements and gases. It also takes place in studying the dynamic of the two seas and prediction of climatic change.
2- معمل الجيولوجيا والجيوفيزياء البحرية:
2- Marine geology and Geophysical lab
Marin geology focuses on the study of the history and structure of the Mediterranan and Red sea floor. It involves , geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological investigations of the sea floor and.
3- معمل الهيدروبيولوجى :
3- Hydrobiological Lab
Hydrobiology is the science of life and life processes in water. Much of modern hydrobiology can be viewed as a sub-discipline of ecology but the sphere of hydrobiology includes economic biology, industrial biology, morphology, physiology etc. The one distinguishing aspect is that all relate to aquatic organisms.
4- الكيمياء البحرية:
4- Marine Chemistry Lab
Marine Chemistry concerns chemical processes and the composition of marine water bodies. This can involve a wide range of parameters including the monitoring of dissolved inorganic chemicals and the chemistry of particulate organic matter. A major use of marine chemistry is through pollution regulation and monitoring in marine environmental protection.
5- معمل التلوث البحرى :
5- Marine Pollution Lab
Marine pollution includes a range of threats including from land-based sources, oil spills, untreated sewage, heavy siltation, eutrophication (nutrient enrichment), invasive species, persistent organic pollutants (POP’s), heavy metals from mine tailings and other sources, acidification, radioactive substances, marine litter, overfishing and destruction of coastal and marine habitats
6- معمل عمليات الشواطئ :
6- Shore Processor Lab
Coastal research has focused on hydrodynamics, sediment transport and morphodynamic processes in depositional coastal environments (beaches, shore face and estuaries).
7- معمل الميكروبيولوجى :
7- Marine Microbiological Lab
The main focus of research in Marine Microbiology (MI) is on biodiversity studies of marine microorganisms from characteristic marine habitats.
Main Research Topics:
• Marine Microbial Diversity
• Microbial Interactions
• Marine Microbial Resources
• Biology of Marine Fungi
8- معمل تصنيف الأحياء البحرية :
8- Taxonomy Lab
The science of taxonomy classifies species into evolutionary relationships to help identify organisms and name species. Taxonomy is also referred to as scientific classification.
The Science of Classification
It is responsible for the discovery of new species, analysis and compilation of collected data, and the release of new information to the public, including other scientists. The research requires valuable identification skills, the ability to categorize and recognize species relationships, an understanding of ecosystems and ecology, knowledge of species distribution, and the ability to determine keystone species. They must also be able to submit data and explain the synthesis clearly for people in communities.
9- معمل التقنية الحيوية:
9- Biotechnology and natural product Lab
Marine Biotechnology is the study of how the various organisms and actions of the Mediterranean and Red seas can be used to provide services and products to us.
Marine Biotechnology can provide many solutions to Industry and Agriculture, including environmentally friendly pesticides and salt-resistant enzymes that are helpful in many industrial applications.
