NOS Coastal Science Board
The purpose of the internal National Ocean Service's (NOS) Coastal Science Board is to advise the Director of the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) and provide assistance to NCCOS in establishing and addressing priorities for coastal, ocean, and Great Lakes resource management science, as well as in identifying current and future science and research requirements in support of NOS Program Offices, associated stakeholders, and statutory mandates.
The Board serves as a forum to strengthen internal connections between NOS Programs resulting in better service to NOS
constituents and greater support of
NOAA's mission. The Board consists of members from almost every Program Office within NOS as well as the NOS Deputy Administrator, the NOS Chief Science Advisor, the Director of
NCCOS, the NOAA
Coastal Goal lead.
