Oregon Sea Grant serves the state, region and nation through integrated research, education and public engagement on ocean and coastal issues.
We apply the best available science to timely and important marine issues, and engage with coastal stakeholders to help them reach informed decisions. We support scientific excellence and innovation, foster new generations of marine scientists and encourage ocean science literacy among people of all ages.
Based at Oregon State University, we're part of the national network of NOAA Sea Grant College Programs, dedicated to promoting environmental stewardship, long-term economic development and responsible use of America’s coastal, ocean and Great Lakes resources.
For years, research into West Coast oyster hatchery die-offs has
pointed the finger at Vibrio tubiashii. Now Oregon State University
researchers believe a different, but related, bacterium – V.
coralliilyticus – may be the real culprit. The findings were
published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, by researchers
from OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, the U.S.
Tsunami preparedness will soon be coming to a smartphone near
you. A team of researchers at Oregon State University is developing
an app for coastal residents to plan â€“ and test
– evacuation routes to use during an earthquake and tsunami.
Participants will use the app to conduct actual evacuation drills
and compare their response […]
CORVALLISâ€”A little training, a little
fellowship and a chance to show off what they’ve learned:
That’s what a gathering of graduate and undergraduate
university students got Thursday when they gathered at Oregon State
University for the second Oregon Sea Grant Scholars Day.
â€œThis is really an opportunity for students we
support to come and tell […]
WALDPORT – Students at Waldport High School are excited
about today’s successful launch of their unmanned sailboat,
Phyxius, near the Equator by OSU’s R/V Oceanus, as part of a
long-term nationalÂ project to better understand ocean
currents and transport patterns. The project, organized by Oregon
Sea Grant and the Oregon Coast STEM Hub, is part […]
New research suggests that intense storms could increase the
impact of flooding in coastal estuaries. As more water is forced
into the estuary, site-specific geographic features will cause more
inundation in some parts of the estuary than others, contrary to
the uniform rise that was previously expected. Estuaries are mixing
pots between rivers and the […]
