Cedar Island Marina Research Laboratory has written, and continues to writes publications, manuscripts, reports and theses based on the research completed throughout the year. We also attend severaal conferences throughout the year particpating in both oral and poster presentations. Below you will find all of the writing and presentations we have done dating back to as early as 1991. For more information (full papers or abstracts) on specific work(s) please contact the lab.
