In California, sustainability doesn’t stop at the seashore. The state’s urban coastal waters face many environmental threats including fishing, pollution and chemical runoff. Cal State Long Beach and CSU Monterey Bay are among six California universities selected to take part in a research grant program aimed at making the state’s urban coastline more sustainable.
Long Beach and Monterey Bay researchers will join those from the University of Southern California, Stanford University, Mills College, and the University of the Pacific in an integrated program, which involves both research and public outreach—to help Californians understand and conserve their coasts.
