Welcome to the Williams Marine Environmental Change (MEC) Lab at the Claremont Colleges!

The Williams MEC Lab is a student-centric research lab in the W.M. Keck Science Department at Claremont McKenna College, Pitzer College, and Scripps College. Our research develops and interpret records of environmental variability in our oceans from the tropics to the poles. From these records, we work to understand mechanisms driving natural variability in chemical, biological, and physical oceanography, along with the response of the ocean to anthropogenic climate change.
