Marine Studies Initiative: Research Working Group
Objectives: 1)Develop new interdisciplinary approaches to collaborate around marine issues 2)Build capabilities in data-intensive science and services, such as OOI 3)Enable new capabilities and facilities to support access to the sea 4)Establish new partnerships 5)Create “incubator” spaces 6)Unique approaches to experiential learning around marine issues 7)Develop international partnerships related to marine studies research and policies Plan of Action: 1)Identify capabilities and capacities among constituents 2)Brainstorm about research directions and opportunities 3)Identify gaps and needs, and set priorities What is the vision for research within the MSI?
Marine Studies Initiative: Research Working Group Sustainability, The Future We Want and a Core Principle of OSU and the MSI Whether it is safe, sustainable seafood, clean water and energy, or access to ocean related recreation and cultural resources, OSU and the research endeavor at MSI are committed to defining and understanding the complex questions necessary to ensure a sustainable future for Oregonians and our ocean resources. Convergence, An Approach to Emergent Research Themes for the OSU MSI Convergence integrates knowledge, tools, and ways of thinking from life and health sciences, physical, mathematical, and computational sciences, engineering disciplines, and beyond to form a comprehensive synthetic framework for tackling scientific and societal challenges that exist at the interfaces of multiple fields.
Marine Studies Initiative: Research Working Group F ROM T HE M OUNTAIN T OPS TO THE O CEAN : A S TEWARDSHIP OF P LACE IN O REGON Water connects the land to ocean from the fresh rain and snow in the mountains carrying materials downstream, through the flowing creeks and rivers, to the oscillating estuaries and eventually to the salty coastal ocean; water completes this cycle continually along the Oregon coast. Major Research Themes Integrated Marine Systems Science Reliance on the Sea Global Change and Resilient Coastal Communities
Marine Studies Initiative: Research Working Group Assets and Areas of Distinction There are lots, look online and talk to your colleagues (outside your division).
