More Info: The Long Island Sound Research Conference

Since 1992, the Long Island Sound Research conference has convened every other year, rotating venues between the states of Connecticut and New York.

The conference began as a response to a recommendation by the Long Island Sound Assembly that there should be a venue where all of the current science relating to Long Island Sound could be presented.

Highlighted at this biennial conference is the diverse research occurring in the Long Island Sound and its watershed. The idea is to gather scientists and students from all of the relevant disciplines together, to present and synthesize a big picture of Long Island Sound science.

Historically, the conference was organized by the Long Island Sound Foundation until 2016, after which the responsibilities have been shared by Connecticut Sea Grant and New York Sea Grant, with support from the Long Island Sound Study.

More Info: New York Sea Grant

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York (SUNY), is one of 34 university-based programs under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program.

Since 1971, NYSG has represented a statewide network of integrated research, education and extension services promoting coastal community economic vitality, environmental sustainability and citizen awareness and understanding about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources.

Through NYSG’s efforts, the combined talents of university scientists and extension specialists help develop and transfer science-based information to many coastal user groups—businesses and industries, federal, state and local government decision-makers and agency managers, educators, the media and the interested public.

The program maintains Great Lakes offices at Cornell University, University at Buffalo, SUNY Oswego and the Wayne County Cooperative Extension office in Newark. In the State's marine waters, NYSG has offices at Stony Brook University and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau County on Long Island; at Brooklyn College, with New York City Department of Environmental Protection in Queens and at Cornell Cooperative Extension in NYC and Elmsford and Kingston in the Hudson Valley.
