Basrah Marine Science Centre


In 1971, as a result of reseach conducted by UNESCO, the University of Basrah decided to establish an institute which specialized in the study of marine environment in the Iraqi gulf. Three years later, Dr. Stevenson, a member of UNESCO's Marine Section, visited the area and studied the possibility of establishing such a center in Basra. Simultaneously, a group of researchers in the Department of Biology at the University of Basrah began considering same idea. The multiplicity and diversity of possibilities at the University of Basrah made ​​it possible to establish an independent unit which specialized in marine science research within the University of Basrah and it was dubbed the Marine Science Center (MSC). In 1981, the Center was established and all research on marine science in Iraq has officially became part of it. Since then, the Marine Science Center has become the largest specialized center in the region. 

MSC Mission

The Marine Science Center is the only center in Iraq which specializes in marine sciences. It offers scientific research services and consultation to both local establishments and the private sector. The Marine Science Center aims to provide the best service to the community and all who share interests and who benefit from an accurate diagnosis of needs and future expectations in the field. Also, it offers qualified, supportive, and interactive response for their needs by facilitating access to all university processes and services (educational, research, consultation and management). 

MSC Vision

The Marine Science Center strives to become distinguished among Iraqi, Arab and international research centers, colleges and universities in the scientific and academic fields for the kind of services it offers.
In the future, the MSC intends achieve ISO 9001 certification (following standards published in 2000) using the ISO guide and with the academic approval of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.

Department of Marine Chemistry and Environmental pollution

About the Department

The Department of Environmental Chemistry and Pollution is one of the most important departments in the Marine Science Center. It primarily studies the environmental pollutants which have created the critical environmental conditions facing the southern region of Iraq. The department aims to study and investigate the impact of these pollutants on the environment. The department works with other departments to observe inland bodies of water and Iraqi territorial waters. This environmental observation has many sections, including specialized research studying organic, inorganic, and biological pollutants, as well as others. Some pollution in the environment results from untreated household, medical, and hospital sewage, which is released directly into the river waters, passing through the Shatt al-Arab estuary to coastal waters and then is spread in the Arabian Gulf

The Department of Environmental Chemistry and Pollution studies the dynamic effects of certain types of sea species in different regions of the Iraqi territorial waters, especially the coastal region, to prove the presence of environmental stress in the area. In order to conduct these studies, the department works in collaboration with the other departments of the MSC, such as the departments of Marine Biology, Marine Geology, and Marine Physics

The department also assesses environmental pollution of the Shatt al-Arab from medical sewage, its dangers for health, and its impact on the environment of the northwestern Arabian Gulf

By providing important data about the environmental situation, this environmental assessment is considered the fundamental step in the program to conserve environmental diversity and management of the ecosystem. This works as a basis for determining plans and programs for the rehabilitation of some damaged environments and presenting suggestions and solutions for their rehabilitation
