A longtime research leader in marine science, UC Santa Barbara is at the center of myriad projects and conversations about the composition, health and future of the world’s oceans. A new effort led by UCSB marine ecologist Bob Miller focuses on California. With a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Miller and his colleagues are bringing together key members of the scientific community researching coastal Southern California as they study the region’s dynamic marine ecosystems.
