NOAA’s Coastal Ocean Science Blog Goes Live!


Science Through the Lens of Scientists

WASHINGTON D.C. - January 30, 2021 - Today, NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) unveiled the Coastal Ocean Science Blog, a new communications tool that will give you a detailed look into the science taking place across the US. The goal of the blog is to give readers a 360-perspective of research, from design and implementation, to results and how that science is being used by natural resource managers and partners around the US and its Territories such as those of the NOAA’s Coral Reef Conservation Program. Look for postings about and interviews with Principal Investigators (PIs) working on Coral research! All of these discussions are with scientists, by scientists. Check out journals and publications related to our work with NCCOS scientists.

This is a forum for those interested in being part of the dialogue on the science happening between our program and NOAA’s Biogeography Branch at NCCOS’ Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment. If you are doing research in the Science for Coastal Ecosystem Assessments and Pollution, contact Becky Wynne at or email the blog team for details on guest blogging.

We hope you will enjoy this new look at the way science is evolving at NOAA and how scientists from CRCP and NCCOS are evolving their methods and approaches to answer the ever-changing questions about our coral reef habitats and ecosystems.

Please share this blog with managers, decision makers or other scientists interested in the latest innovations happening at NOAA.
