Coastal Observations: a Biological Perspective

BIOME

Image of BIOMEAnother major part of our program is BIOME (Bio-Physical Interactions in Coastal Margin Ecosystems). This program entails seasonal oceanographic cruises which monitor various meteorological, biological, and physical interactions in the coastal region off-shore of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. The cruises observe and interpret the seasonal variability of these interactions. These observations will then be available to the public for various efforts ranging from continued scientific research to improved fish catches by fishermen.
