Detailed Description

The USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center has grown from a core group of geologists and oceanographers to over 100 staff members including biologists, oceanographers, modelers, remote sensing specialists, biogeochemists, microbiologists, coral reef experts, support staff, marine operations crew, data management specialists, and more. The center continues to thrive with numerous research projects and 57,000 ft2 of labs, office, and workspace. The Center is an active part of the local St. Petersburg science community, and continually seeks ways to share data, tools, and scientific knowledge with the public and partners so our Nation can effectively manage marine resources and prepare for coastal hazards.
