You can read more about the potential effects of tsunami debris in his white paper, Debris Accumulation Scenarios in Washington State from the March 2011 Tōhoku Tsunami (pdf).
- Request for West Coast Social Science Proposals. The four West Coast Sea Grant programs invite regional proposals that address social science topics related to national Sea Grant goals. See the website for more information.
- Apply for WSG Marine Science and Policy Fellowships. Learn more about our marine fellowship opportunities. For more information on applying for specific fellowships, visit our Student Support Programs page
- Pumpout Video for Boaters. Dumping raw or poorly treated human sewage into the water degrades marine ecosystems. Watch the video for an easy lesson in using boat sewage pumpouts.
- WOW. Washington on Water (WOW) is a Web-based tool to help teachers in kindergarten through 12th grade zero in on marine education resources throughout Washington—from interior watersheds to the outer coast. By facilitating connections among educators, scientists, industry, government and nonprofit organizations, WOW can help improve marine science literacy in the state. Take a test drive.
