About On the Ocean

Faculty at the Texas A&M University Department of Oceanography and KAMU-FM have created an oceanic science podcast worth 2 minutes of your Tuesday to learn important facts about the ocean, marine creatures, and oceanographic research. This radio program takes current, cutting edge research done at Texas A&M University and broadcasts it, bringing the information to the people who need it. Every week a new installment will bring listeners relevant, interesting science from data collected by Texas A&M University students and faculty, with monthly series about broad topics affecting our oceans today.

KAMU-FM airs On the Ocean Tuesdays at 8:30 am CT. Podcasts, text, and links will be uploaded on this site shortly after.
