2007 PI Research Symposium

Thursday, April 19, 2007
Seattle, Washington

The Coastal Response Research Center hosted an open research symposium on Center-funded projects in Seattle, Washington on April 19, 2007. Principal Investigators presented their research results to date. Immediately following the Symposium, CRRC's Science Advisory Panel met on April 20 to discuss the project results thus far.
