Who We Are?

We are a national HICoE (Higher Institution Centre of Excellence) in marine science. We work on holistic and integrated approach in addressing marine and oceanographic issues at both local and regional level via various research teams.

MFAST - Malaysia Marine Forecast System

The MFAST is developed under the collaboration between UMT and First Institute of Oceanography (FIO), China, which is a supplementary product of the Ocean Forecasting Demonstration System (OFDS) for Southeast Asian Water; one of the Southeast Asian Global Ocean Observing System (SEAGOOS) pilot projects under the auspices of the IOC Sub-Commissions for the Western Pacific (IOC/WESTPAC).

MFAST is the first OFS in Malaysia to have a high-resolution ocean forecast data which is developed based on wave-tide-circulation coupled model established by the Laboratory of Marine Sciences and Numerical Modelling (MASNUM), FIO.

Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research

The project will realize the vision and mission of the Asia-Pacific Network (APN) Goals and Action Agenda by providing an understanding on how marine ecosystems reduce the risk along the coastal area under present and future climate scenarios in the tropic. These complex issues are related to the APN research agenda, namely climate, biodiversity and ecosystem, risk, and resilience. Our research will perform the analyses and involve experts, local stakeholders, in accordance with APN’s mission.
