The Chemical Oceanography & Marine Pollution Laboratory (COMP) is a MS ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory since 2014 and we are committed in providing the best services and assistance for chemical analysis and testing. Being an integral part of the academic environment of Institute of Oceanography & Environment (INOS) and the University Malaysia Terengganu (UMT), we played an important role in technical services for UMT’s researchers and advising graduate student in areas of chemical sciences and instrumentation. The laboratory also hosts Practical Students who gain research experience during their appointments while also providing an influx of new ideas.

As chemical oceanographers, we conduct and participated in numerous oceanographic voyages and cruises for the purposes in collecting marine samples and the data obtained helps in understanding the status of our ocean’s health from chemistry perspectives.
