USNA | Facilities

The Naval Academy boasts the most extensive undergraduate oceanographic facilities in the country. Located at the mouth of the Severn River, the Hendrix Oceanography Laboratory is a multi-function enclosure featuring a wet laboratory where tanks circulate water from the Severn River and midshipmen study the world's largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay. The Department's research vessel, YP686, a specially outfitted yard patrol craft, enables midshipmen to collect oceanographic and meteorological data for analysis afloat or at the Hendrix Lab. An additional laboratory complex in Rickover Hall houses additional oceanographic, meteorological, and geological laboratories.
