Seeking coastal research information!

This site relies on its users for much of its content. Please alert us to any material you think we should include on our site. And if you have prepared progress reports for your funding agencies, send us a copy -- we would like to summarize your research for other site visitors. Georgia Coastal Research Council affiliated scientists and managers are also encouraged to check their bibliographic profiles and let us know of anything that needs updating. Any feedback (complaints, compliments, broken links) is welcome. Please contact us.

About the Council 

The Georgia Coastal Research Council was established to provide mechanisms for improved scientific exchange between coastal scientists and decision makers in the State of Georgia, and to promote the incorporation of best-available scientific information into State and local resource management. The Council is not a policy organization, but rather seeks to provide unbiased, objective information about scientific issues. The Council staff are located in the School of Marine Programs at the University of Georgia, and are supported with funding from a Coastal Incentive Grant from the Coastal Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the Georgia Sea Grant College Program, and the National Science Foundation (through the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems - Long Term Ecological Research Project).
