Mine Burial Prediction Program A major goal of the ONR Mine Burial Prediction (MBP) Program is to provide the operational Navy a prototype model for forecasting mine burial which works with a known and useful degree of accuracy in regions of strategic interest, defined initially as sandy inner shelves dominated by waves.
Models This website lists several VIMS Models including the Craney Island Eastward Expansion Project and Hydrodynamic Eutrophication Model (HEM-3D).
Molluscan Ecology Program The Molluscan Ecology Program within the Department of Fisheries Science at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) is a dynamic research group that derives its origins from the original oyster biologists at the Virginia Fisheries Laboratory, the organizational ancestor to VIMS.
Mycobacteriosis VIMS scientists have discovered that a new species of bacteria is largely responsible for a disease outbreak among Chesapeake Bay striped bass. The new species, which they named Mycobacterium shottsii, is closely related to M. marinum, a species known to infect both fish and humans.
