College or University: The Center for Coastal Margin Observation & Prediction

Type of degree: Ph.D.

Brief overview of program: The Science and Technology Center for Coastal Margin Observation and Prediction (CMOP) provides a unique opportunity for students to engage in interdisciplinary graduate studies. Our research integrates fields such as coastal oceanography, environmental microbiology, biogeochemistry, computational sciences, and information technology, and our education and training programs prepare professionals for rewarding careers in and across these quickly growing fields. Established with major funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), CMOP is a collaborative effort among several academic and industry partners. Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) is the lead CMOP institution. Primary partners are Oregon State University and University of Washington. CMOP is one of 17 active NSF Science and Technology Centers and is the only one focused on coastal margins.
