Welcome to the Coastal Ocean Science Blog!

This is a place where you can come to see NOAA science taking place as it happens from the vantage point of the researchers and scientists doing the work, hence the title.

We will run the gamet of postings from sampling Algal blooms in the Great Lakes to collecting baseline data in the Chukchi Sea in Alaska, or gathering biogeographic data in the Caribbean for farmers or helping New York state figure out where to put wind turbines for alternative energy solutions.  But there’s more…

If you want to know what NOAA science is doing, visit often.  Don’t forget to check out our calendar on the right where you can find out where our scientists are and what they’re doing.  There’s something for just about anyone interested in NOAA’s ocean science research.

And because research is done in a continuum, you’ll also see NOAA partner posts on the work being done in partnership with us.  We want to give you the whole picture and who better than the great NOAA partners to complete the picture?

So set your dial to research and come along on a journey of discovery as we look into the depths of our oceans and the myriad of critters that are beneath the waves.  You just might learn a thing or two.

    Nerd Alert! So I joined the ECOLOG listserv, listserv of the Ecological Society of America at the beginning of my senior year at UNC–mostly to keep an eye out for job/graduate degree opportunities. I get probably upwards of 10-15 emails a day from it but I’ve stayed subscribed because I like to see the kinds of jobs that are out there, the research people are doing and sometimes follow some interesting discussion threads. Today one of those emails was about the new NOAA Coast Ocean Science Blog. So so so excited. New favorite wordpress blog (no offense to any of the other blogs I follow, you’re really awesome too!). So if you have even the faintest interest in what kinds of ocean-y research the folks at NOAA are up to, check it out!
