COAST is now accepting applications for the AY 2018-19 COAST Graduate Student Research Awards. Each award is $3,000 and we plan to make ~30 awards. The application deadline is Thursday, January 31, 2019, 5:00 p.m. PDT. 
Stephen Hillenburg, creator of the hit television series “SpongeBob SquarePants" and Humboldt State University alumni, is furthering his contribution to the marine sciences through an endowment designed to support student research. This year, he and his wife Karen created the Stephen Hillenburg Marine Science Research Award Endowment at HSU with a $135,000 gift to provide grant awards for student research projects in marine biology, oceanography, and marine fisheries.

Scientists from SFSU, UC Davis, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administraton–backed Central and Northern California Ocean Observing System (CeNCOOS) dropped a seawater-chemistry-monitoring buoy and companion mooring into the deep green water just behind the EOS in Tiburon. The buoy and mooring are intended to continue operating for decades as part of NOAA’s global ocean monitoring system.
