ambitious research

plans focusing on the marine/coastal record of environmental change over
100–1,000,000-year timescales; and (3) strengthen collaborations between

Maine (www.bigelow.org). There also are opportunities for collaborations
with scientists at Colby and other nearby institutions including the
University of Maine Climate Change Institute, Bowdoin College, and Bates

travel funding, and can apply for divisional research grants and

summer research-assistant funding on a competitive basis. More information
