This grant to Oregon State University supports the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO), a research consortium involving marine scientists from four universities. Through this large-scale marine program, PISCO researchers are working to understand the dynamics of the ocean ecosystems along more than 1,200 miles of the US West Coast. Outcomes for this grant include identification, and increased understanding of, West Coast ecological patterns; increased use of science in marine policy, management, and stewardship decisions; improved accessibility of marine ecosystem data; and increased PISCO institutional capacity.
