​First-generation college student and COAST awardee, Hannah Kim, combines her love of marine science and communicating with the public through her original art illustrations​. Hannah, a graduating senior at ​CSU Monterey Bay, demonstrates that humanities can be a part of research just as much as science is! ​


​As sea-level rise raises water levels, threats of rising groundwater levels intensify, resulting in the danger of contaminated drinking water. A recent State Science Information Needs Program​ award provided by COAST, with co-funding from California Sea Grant, funded Dr. Ben Hagedorn (CSU Long Beach)​ and his team to study this phenomenon. According to Dr. Hagedorn, "right now, [the contaminants are] trapped in the ground... but as the groundwater rises and inundates the rocks, they could become mobilized."
