News from Umeå Marine Sciences Centre
To make it easier for researchers, PhD-students and undergraduate students to work at UMSC we arrange with transportation between Hörnefors and Norrbyn. This means that you are able to use bus or train from Umeå while working at our field station. Contact Mikael Molin or Monica Johansson a couple of days ahead, and we will meet you at the bus or train.
UMSC is a research centre at Umeå University, organised under the Faculty of Science and Technology and situated in Norrbyn, 40 kilometres south of Umeå. UMSC supports marine research and education, performs marine environmental monitoring and analysis and spreads information about research and marine environmental status, with a particular focus on the Gulf of Bothnia. UMSC is also hosting the Umeå University Unit of the Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment. UMSC owns a smaller research vessel, a research boat and several smaller boats, and has a larger research vessel at it's disposal.
