The Oceans Across Space and Time (OAST) project is part of the Network for Life Detection (NfoLD), funded by NASA’s Astrobiology Program. Our goal is to understand how ocean worlds and their biospheres co-evolve to produce detectable signals of a past or present living world, by combining the expertise of a multidisciplinary team.

Meet our team of hydrogeologists, limnologists, modelers, planetary geologists, geochemists, biogeochemists, molecular biologists, oceanographers, ice physicists, geomicrobiologists, spectroscopists, and astrobiologists.
