Research Vessel Elakha
Research vessels play a key role in studying pressing issues facing our oceans, including acidification, harmful algal blooms, tsunami prediction and declining fisheries. CEOAS ships conduct state-of-the-art scientific research that advance understanding of the ocean–one of the last great frontiers on Earth.

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences operates research vessels out of the Ship Operations facility located at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Oregon. CEOAS is also the lead institution in the design and construction of the next Regional Class Research Vessel.
