Abstract

This supplemental funding award is in support of Dr. Culver's Sea Grant Extension program, a program focused on discovering and transferring science-based knowledge to help California and its residents better balance the competing needs of using and conserving coastal and marine resources for future generations. Funds will be used to support activities and operating expenses for her research, education and outreach program. Funds are allocated toward support staff and stipends for first generation/underrepresented fellows that will assist Culver with program activities, including assistance with field sampling, processing of samples, literature searches, information synthesis, outreach and office support. Funds also will be used to purchase laboratory supplies.
