The RIPTIDES program will allow students to pursue novel research projects, highly relevant to the urbanized coastline of the San Francisco Estuary in a global change context. RIPTIDES trainees formulate interdisciplinary research projects that span the central research interests of at least two of the research laboratories at RTC, including the co-located SF Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) and the SF Bay Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC). This research program prepares the next generation of scientists with broad interdisciplinary skills for for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM)-related fields.
