From the 1950s to last week, Nancy Steinberg reels out the story of Oregon State University’s oceanography program. Nearly everything known about the flora and fauna of Oregon’s coastal ocean comes from 60 years of samples taken along a specific route by OSU’s intrepid oceanographers. Read how their technology evolved from bottles thrown over the side of a boat to underwater gliders in Nancy’s cover story for Terra magazine. The issue celebrates the university’s 150th anniversary. @NDSteinberg image: scientist Jennifer Fisher, by Nancy Steinberg
