Corals of the Galápagos
Starting her new year with a packing list and travel intinerary - and ending with an understanding of the impact of human activities on the health of coral reef systems - Dr. Logan will be spending the spring semester, and her 2018-19 U.S. Fulbright Scholarship, to study corals in the Galápagos Islands. Specifically, the scientific collaboration will focus on thermal tolerance of corals and help develop a more robust model for predicting future bleaching. Bon voyage!
Nod to Marine Science Program
CSUMB's Marine Science program was just ranked #5 of The 10 Best Colleges for Marine Biology by College Magazine, a periodical written by a team of student journalists from universities nationwide.
Seafaring Era Ends
With an ahoy and adieu, we bid farewell to the Seafloor Mapping Lab. Built during CSUMB's early years, the SFML established itself as a reliable member of the seafloor mapping, education, and scientific community; and importantly, provided scores of students with highly marketable hydrographic training through classes and lab employment. The SFML Data Library, containing two decades of survey products, will remain publicly available, including the substantial statewide collection garnered through the multi-institution collaborative California Seafloor Mapping Program (CSMP).
