Stockton’s Scientific Diving Program is a member of the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS). The purpose of these Scientific Diving Standards is to ensure that all scientific diving is conducted in a manner that will maximize protection of scientific divers from accidental injury and/or illness, and to set forth standards for training and certification that will allow a working reciprocity between organizational members. Stockton's program supports the research activities of the faculty operating out of the MFS, as well as provides a platform for training and AAUS certification of Stockton-affiliated faculty, staff and students.
Recent dive-supported research projects include:
- RJ Walker expedition
- Mullica River Wrecks
- Tuckerton Reef Oyster Restoration studies
