Coastal Ocean Research and Moni, University of North Carolina at Wilmington, 20050307, Primary metadata record describing Coastal Ocean Reasearch and Monitoring Program (CORMP).
The UNCW CORMP is a NOAA funded program, with Drs. Marvin Moss, Lynn Leonard and Michael Durako as Principal Investigators. Numerous researchers, faculty, post-docs, technicians, graduate students, and data managers have contributed to these datasets.
The strategic plan for the Congressionally mandated Integrated Ocean Observations System (IOOS) calls for a sustained, integrated system to improve weather forecasting, predictions of climate change and related impacts on coastal populations, safety and efficiency of marine operations, and coastal ecosystem health. The Coastal Ocean Research and Monitoring Program (CORMP) at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW) is a research and monitoring program that addresses these goals in the coastal ocean. The program mission is to provide an interdisciplinary science-based framework that supports sound public policy leading to wise coastal use, sustainable fisheries and improved coastal ocean ecosystem health.
Information about omissions, selection criteria, generalization, definitions used, and other rules used to derive the data set are further explained on the website.
