|The HMSC in Newport is one of the largest
marine labs in the Pacific Northwest, a thriving research community
where students interact with university faculty and government
agency scientists and have easy access to the “living laboratory” of
Oregon’s coastal estuaries and the ocean. On the OSU main
campus in Corvallis, the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences
trains the next generation of biological, chemical, geological
and physical oceanographers, offering opportunities for interdisciplinary
research in world class labs and facilities. Funding for this REU site is provide by
