Giving CCOHS

The Center for Coastal Ocean Science (CCOS) will host research and education programs to explore the interface of land, sea, and civilization to characterize and identify attributes of sustainable coastal ocean health, human health, and related socio-economics. CCOS will engage universities, government, and industry in research that explores chronic and acute natural and anthropogenic impacts on marine and estuarine environments.

The existing facility needs some major renovations, including but not limited to new HVAC, general repair of plumbing, new instrumentation, and new tanks with associated flow through systems.

Cost estimate for renovation and equipping facilities with research infrastructure is $6 million.
