MIT Sea Grant produces accurate, science-based information on coastal and oceanographic processes for the public. Our library of research publications includes over 1,400 journal reprints, technical reports, informational brochures, manuals, and conference proceedings that result from our funded research and in connection with our outreach activities. In addition, we have many informal documents such as PowerPoint presentations, video clips, written reports, images and the URLs of related websites available concerning the activities of our researchers and staff.
