The Department of Oceanography is located on the University of Hawaii's largest campus (about 20,000 students), overlooking Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, the State Capitol and business and cultural center. As a designated "area of excellence", the marine and earth sciences enjoy strong support at the State and University levels. This has led to rapid expansion of faculty, facilities, and programs over the past two decades, and the establishment of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) in 1988. SOEST integrates the Departments of Oceanography, Geology and Geophysics, Meteorology, and Ocean and Resources Engineering, the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, the Sea Grant and Space Grant Programs, the Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory, the International Pacific Research Center, and the Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research. With a combined faculty and staff of almost 700 and an annual operating budget in excess of $100 million, SOEST is a leading institution of multidisciplinary research and education on the ocean, earth, and atmosphere.
