Moss Landing Marine Laboratories

Data Center Description
The Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML) are the marine
research and teaching facilities that serve a consortium of
seven California State Universities in Northern
California. These include the CSU campuses at San Jose, San
Francisco, Hayward, Stanislaus, Sacramento, Fresno, and Monterey

Since its establishment in 1966, MLML has grown an international
reputation for excellence in marine research, education and is
the second oldest marine lab on Monterey Bay. The MLML mission
is to: "Provision the Pioneers of the Future." We do this
through a hands-on, field-oriented approach to our curriculum,
which places our graduate students at the frontiers of marine
science where discoveries are being made. All of our faculties
are actively involved in state-of-the-art research in a wide
variety of disciplines.

Our marine operations department maintains research vessels from
a fleet of Boston Whalers, to the 135-foot Research Vessel Point
Sur, owned by the National Science Foundation. In addition, MLML
has one of the largest Research Diving programs in the
nation. These tools help to deliver our faculty and students to
the frontiers where our research is performed. The MLML Library
provides ready access to published resources, in both hardcopy
and electronic format. Through our own holdings and reciprocity
with marine labs worldwide, MLML has access to published works
in virtually all areas of marine science.
