Regional Ecosystem Prediction Program: Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research

by:

The United States Department of Commerce, otherwise known as DOC, is an independent agency of the Cabinet department of the United States government that is primarily responsible for promoting and ensuring economic growth.

The programs and activities of the DOC are carefully guided by its overall agency mission, which is to "promote job creation and improved living standards for all Americans by creating an infrastructure that promotes economic growth, technological competitiveness, and sustainable development."

In keeping with this mission, the United States Department of Commerce has recently constituted the development of the Regional Ecosystem Prediction Program, specifically the Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research.

The Regional Ecosystem Predication Program is designed to establish and improve predictive capabilities for the management of the country's coastal resources by way of funding competitive research programs.

After which, the agency then makes it a point to translate the results of its funded research studies into accessible and useful information, and then rightfully shares them with coastal managers, lawmakers, planners, and as well as the public, in an effort to balance the needs of economic improvement with those that are concerned with the conservation of the resources of the nation's coasts, oceans, and great lakes.

In this project, the primary focus would be the effects of ocean acidification on the essential fish and shellfish species and their corresponding ecosystems in United States estuarine and coastal waters.   (continued...)
