Moss Landing Marine Laboratories
The Moss Landing Marine Laboratories is a multi-campus research facility of the California State University, administered by San Jose State University, and located in Moss Landing, California. The facility is located at the midpoint of the coast of Monterey Bay, and is only a few hundred meters from Monterey Canyon , the largest undersea canyon on the west coast of the Americas. As a result, researchers are able to reach areas with depths greater than 1000 meters in less than an hour by boat from the facility.
The laboratories offer a Masters of Science degree in marine sciences through the seven universities that make up the consortium campuses, as well as offering graduate and undergraduate marine science courses to the students of the campuses.
The seven campuses in the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories consortium are:
- California State University, East Bay
- California State University, Fresno
- California State University, Monterey Bay
- California State University, Sacramento
- San Francisco State University
- San Jose State University
- Sonoma State University
