CMOP uses vessels and various platforms to conduct field campaigns in the Columbia River estuary and coastal waters of Oregon and Washington. The research in these areas includes: advance mechanistic understanding of estuarine plankton blooms, biogeochemical exchange between lateral bays and the estuary, Estuarine Turbidity Maxima physical and biogeochemical processes, and ecological effects of ocean acidification and hypoxia.
