Estuary & Ocean Science Center

The mission of the Estuary & Ocean Science Center (EOS), located at SF State's Romberg Tiburon Campus, is to support scientific study of the sea and develop solutions to the environmental problems confronting coastal communities. We connect science, society and the sea through outstanding interdisciplinary research, education and outreach programs, sustaining healthy and resilient coastal ecosystems for future generations. Our vision is to create a sustainable center for scientific discovery, innovation and education focused on the health and resilience of the San Francisco Estuary, the Gulf of the Farallones and other nearby coastal ecosystems.
