COAST News Intro

​Congratulations to Dr. Sean Anderson of CSU Channel Islands​ and Dr. Kerry Nickols of CSU Northridge​ for their participation in the working group of the Ocean Protection Council Science Advisory Team (OPC-SAT) and their contributions to the recently published report which provides scientific guidance on ways to restore coastal areas impacted by power plants! 


​Assembly member Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach) helped secure $3.75 million in funding for CSU Long Beach's Shark Lab. “We are very excited about receiving this state funding to continue and expand our on-going research on white sharks off California and to work with our partners, including lifeguards, police and fire departments,” Dr. Chris Lowe, Shark Lab Director, said. The funding will be used to increase the university’s collaborative beach shark monitoring program and develop new shark education programs.


National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported marine biologist Peter Edmunds of California State University, Northridge, and other researchers have discovered "oases" where corals appear to be thriving. They hope their findings will encourage further study into why small communities of corals are surviving when so many reefs are not, and inspire efforts to identify similar oases in other ecosystems.
