dification on corals and reef-building processes. Scientists at the Center will also conduct fisheries and biological oceanography research to generate models of the biological and physical processes that affect the distribution of marine organisms and their connectivity. The Center will also offer opportunities for collaborations in understanding the connections between the oceans and human health including studies of harmful algal blooms, the effects of toxins in the marine environment as well as developing aquatic animal models of human diseases such as neurodegeneration.

"Currently, about 60 percent of people worldwide live in a coastal region, and here in the United States it is expected that by 2025 nearly 75 percent of the population will live in a coastal area," said SUSTAIN Principal Investigator Brian Haus, associate professor of Applied Marine Physics and director of UM's Air-Sea Interaction Saltwater (ASIST) Facility. "Developing a more complete understanding of our environment and its weather, as well as the weather's effects on structures, ecosystems and even on human health is essential. This building will provide an excellent resource to help us to decipher what is taking place on the planet."

Professor Brian Haus led the proposal to establish this new facility with the participation of co-Principal Investigators Robert Cowen, Maytag professor of ichthyology and UM chair of Marine Biology and Fisheries; Hans Graber, UM professor and chair of Applied Marine Physics and director of the Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing (CSTARS); and Professor Antonio Nanni of UM's College of Engineering.
