Welcome

The Department of Oceanography (DOCE) of the University of Concepcion is part of the Faculty of Natural and Oceanographic Sciences.  Founded in 1971,  DOCE is committed to the study of the ocean as a whole, including the study of the diversity of aquatic organisms, the sustainable exploitation of marine resources, the impact on environmental pollution, the effects of global climate change and the use of biotechnology in aquatic systems.  In order to assure the training of new generations of ocean scientists, DOCE  maintains a Pregraduate Program in Marine Biology and a Postgraduate Program in Oceanography and Fishery, where students from Chile and other countries, receive an integral education on the different aspects of  the study of the oceans.  We invite you to learn more about our history and activities in this website.
