The Science Advisory Council’s responsibilities are to offer advice on the general research and educational goals of CIMRS that promote cooperation between university and federal agency researchers to make the most of collaborative opportunities at Hatfield Marine Science Center, in the Pacific Northwest, and globally.  We rely on the Council for guidance on emerging OSU research initiatives and NOAA mission goals for which CIMRS is well placed to merge synergy.
