Natural Resources & Geological Oceanography Laboratory (OGSA)

The Natural Resources & Geological Oceanography Laboratory (OGSA) is an organized laboratory unit serving an integral part of the academic environment of Institute of Oceanography & Environment  (INOS) and the Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT), Malaysia by playing an important role in the technical service, marine data observation and advising graduate student in areas of marine sciences and instrumentation. The laboratory also hosts Practical Students who gain research experience during their appointments while also providing an influx of new ideas

Originally established as a research laboratory in 2024, OGSA has maintained a strong multidisciplinary research program consisting entirely of sponsored projects, other stakeholder related to oceanography and marine matters, universities, non-profits, and state agencies.

As geological oceanographers, we conduct numerous data observation using geological instruments for short and long term datasets. We also use physics, mathematics, computer models and statistics to better understand how the coastal and oceans work and make more accurate predictions of how they may change in the future.

Our Main Objectives:

To become main contributor of data sharing and information related to natural resources, geological oceanography and marine matters in Malaysia.

To implement a systematic data management and data transfer SOP for OGSA.

Laboratory Equipment:
