2007 Coastal Response Research Center Annual Report
April 2, 2008
The Coastal Response Research Center’s 2007 Annual Report is now available
The Coastal Response Research Center is a partnership between UNH and NOAA’s
Office of Response and Restoration. The goal of the center is to reduce the
consequences of spills and other hazards that threaten coastal environments
and communities by conducting research, developing new response and restoration
methods, and transferring technology to practitioners. It is a resource for
NOAA and serves as a hub for the oil spill community.
The 2007 Annual Report highlights the Center’s:
Oil in ice research collaboration – a joint project with U.S. and Norwegian
scientists to better understand the complexities of oil in ice-infested environments;
ERMA™ - a web-based environmental response management tool for improved
communication and decision making during spill response and emergency planning;
Innovative undergraduate and graduate student internships and educational opportunities;
Numerous workshops to benefit the spill response community.
Through these and other endeavors, the center serves NOAA and the spill response
and restoration community by supporting high quality research, initiatives
to educate the next generation of scientists and engineers, and outreach. For
