The North Carolina Sentinel Site Cooperative (NCSSC) was established in 2012 as part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) effort to provide coastal communities and resource managers with information on the potential impacts of sea level rise on coastal habitats. The NCSSC utilizes a collaborative business model to bring together stakeholders, including data producers and end users, through a Core Management Team (CMT) and advisory committee. The goal of the Cooperative is to leverage resources across organizations and integrate the multiple efforts within the NCSSC geography to provide better information to help stakeholders address the challenges associated with sea level rise (SLR) and coastal inundation. The 2017 Partners Meeting was hosted by the North Carolina Sentinel Site Cooperative and the NC National Estuarine Research Reserve on 21 February 2017, at the NOAA Auditorium on Pivers Island in Beaufort, North Carolina. This meeting had a richer diversity of participants than previous NCSSC meetings. The 51 meeting participants included research scientists, coastal managers, town planners, and education professionals from universities, government agencies, and non-profits involved in efforts related to sea level rise, inundation, and coastal resiliency in the central coast of North Carolina.
