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 Bay.
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.
