Oregon State University
Hatfield Marine Science Center
The OSU/NOAA Cooperative Institute for Marine Resources Studies (CIMRS) represents a strong, long-term, NOAA-university partnership dedicated to research in marine science, graduate and public education, and cooperation with regional industries and communities that are dependent on marine resources.

An integral part of the OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC), CIMRS is a model cooperative institute for many reasons. By its co-location with three regional NOAA laboratories representing two NOAA Line Offices, the Institute is able to bring together research partners from a variety of disciplines to address complex multidisciplinary issues relating to the living and non-living components of the marine environment.


What's New: CIMRS Researchers Head to Lau Basin

The R/V Langseth departs from Western Samoa Jan. 10 in a collaborative research project funded by NSF. OSU/CIMRS researcher Haru Matsumoto will deploy an array of hydrophones to compliment a deployment of ocean bottom seismometers to study T-wave propagations of the Lau Basin system east of Australia between the islands of Figi and Tonga.
