Man fishes on ocean shore at sunset
Long-term sampling by Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO) researchers is critically important for helping society anticipate and adapt to present and future disruptions caused by global change.
Oysters in basket
Study evaluates the impact of ocean acidification on the fitness traits across multiple larval stages and between discrete oyster populations.
Oregon State Capitol building
This paper is on how PISCO science and scientists significantly influenced local, state, federal, and international decisions about many topics, but especially marine protected areas, hypoxia, ocean acidification, fishery management, and marine diseases.
Oregon dunes with grasses in foreground
Researchers use descriptive Bayesian network analyses to examine how sediment supply, beach characteristics, and two species of beachgrass alter foredune morphology and patterns of sand accretion on U.S. Pacific Northwest foredunes.
Kai Parker, Malouf Scholar, looking at computer screen with estuary data
This study addresses the limits of probabilistic flood hazard assessment with the development of an emulator which replaces the simulator with a statistical representation that is able to rapidly predict estuarine variables relevant to flooding.
Gray whale breaches
With this study reserachers present a three program analysis suite that measures baleen whales and compensates for lens distortion and corrects scaling error to produce 11 morphometric attributes from sUAS imagery. The program is freely available.
