On December 10th, the St. Petersburg Center for Coastal Geology hosted a Cooperative Research Open House. Approximately 55 guest researchers attended representing the University of South Florida Tampa and St. Petersburg campuses (Departments of Marine Science, Biology, Geology, and Geography), Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, and Mote Marine Institute in Sarasota. Outside scientists from the USGS (BRD—Easter Region Office, Florida Caribbean Science Center in Gainesville, Everglades National Park) and Minerals Management Service also attended.

The purpose of the Open House was to provide information about the Center and a summary of how cooperative agreements work, and to facilitate scientist-to-scientist interaction and collaboration. Lisa Robbins presented an hour overview of the Center's capabilities, scientist funding, how cooperators apply for funds, and a time schedule for the funding cycle. She also gave a brief introduction of all Principal Investigators in the Center and their major ongoing projects as well as potential future projects.

After the introductions, visitors were given tours of the facilities and met with the SPFC scientists to discuss research and potential collaboration interests. Feedback indicates that the Open House has spawned a host of new scientific avenues of research.
