Surface In-Situ Networks
University of North Carolina Wilmington's Coastal Ocean Research and Monitoring Program (CORMP) is a member of the congressionally mandated Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) . CORMP, primarily funded by NOAA, was established in 2000 as a research and monitoring program to address the IOOS goals in the southeastern North Carolina coastal ocean. CORMP's overall goal is to provide an interdisciplinary science-based framework that supports sound public policy leading to wise coastal use, sustainable fisheries and improved coastal ocean ecosystem health.
