The Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR) administers National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) Extramural Research - a portfolio of 11 programs consisting of 73 multi-year awards held by over 370 university, state and government scientists and managers. CSCOR funds research that addresses specific coastal management needs. Research programs often cumulate with the development of models explaining how ecosystems work and how they will respond to change, both negative (e.g. pollution or drought) and positive (e.g. protection or restoration).
Sharing information resources on coastal wetlands helps foster collaborative and more strategic conservation efforts.
There are many existing partnerships, plans, reports, training materials, decision tools and other valuable information resources that can help inform strategic decision making to protect and restore Great Lakes coastal wetlands. On this page we bring these information resources together with brief descriptions and direct links to help you quickly find those resources that meet your individual needs.
