The survey will take less than one minute to complete. The information will be used to create effective educational resources for people of all ages. Results are anonymous!
Collaborating to monitor ocean acidification at Hog Island Oyster Co

This story illustrates how a unique science industry partnership is changing the way we monitor ocean acidification and how monitoring can benefit research, business, and our understanding of the ocean.

CeNCOOS is proud to announce the release of our new Humboldt Bay Oyster Conditions dashboard. The result of a science-industry collaboration, the new dashboard provides easy access to ocean information for the region’s mariculture groups.
 
The New York Times, as part of the "California Matters" series, posted a video exploring our science-industry partnership to monitor ocean acidification and water quality in Tomales Bay.

CeNCOOS announces the start of a new project to continuously monitor subsurface ocean conditions along a 300km track line off Trinidad Head. These measurements fill an important gap in oceanographic observations between Newport, OR, and Monterey Bay, CA; an area that has been identified in many California Current plans as a key sampling location. 

New ocean acidification sensors were recently deployed at Hog Island Oyster Company in a project to test newly developed sensors in partnership with shellfish growers along the West Coast.  The information from this sensor will directly benefit local shellfisheries and will be

On January 28th, 2008, reports of 'tarballs' washing up on shorelines throughout central California arrived via beach monitoring agencies and the public. These floating bits of oil are dime to dinner plate sized.
