HMSC Research Seminars are every Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 at the HMSC campus in Newport, Oregon. Check the HMSC events calendar on the home page, or the OSU calendar for the latest scheduled events.

Topics range the scientific spectrum but are focused around marine and coastal research from leading investigators at HMSC and from around the globe. Our weekly seminars are in the HMSC Library seminar room, which holds about 50 people.  Seminars are broadcast and recorded for our distant students, as well.  The audience is a diverse mix of HMSC researchers and students from OSU, EPA, USFWS, USDA, NOAA, ODFW, and are open to members of the public.  For the live broadcast of the Thursday Seminar via Adobe Connect. 

If you would like to speak in the series, contact Cinamon.moffett@oregonstate.edu.
