Interdisciplinary coastal ocean research is goal of new program


Abstract

Coastal Ocean Processes (CoOP), a new research program, will carry out coordinated interdisciplinary scientific research in the coastal ocean. Although the detailed plans for this effort have not yet been laid out, the motivation and some of the potential topics of interest are clear. During the next year, we expect that a good deal more definition will be given to CoOP's structure and approaches. In the meantime, we want to share some of the thoughts that make such an effort exciting to us.
