NOAA: Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR/COP)
CSCOR/COP provides scientific information to assist decision makers in meeting the challenges of managing our Nation's coastal resources. CSCOR/COP targets critical issues which exist in the Nation's estuaries, coastal waters, and Great Lakes. CSCOR/COP translates its findings into accessible information and the transfer of technology to coastal managers, planners, lawmakers, and the public. Its aim is to create near-term and continuous improvements in environmental decisions affecting the coastal ocean and its resources.
