NOAA Awards $4.7 Million Grant to UNH National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) Science Collaborative

Aug 22, 2011

The University of New Hampshire’s National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) Science Collaborative project has won a $4,727,383 competitive grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

The NERRS Science Collaborative seeks to develop solutions to protect coastal zones, like the Great Bay Estuary, from environmental degradation through a collaborative approach that takes into account both scientific and commercial concerns.  The NERRS Science Collaborative puts Reserve-based science to work for coastal communities coping with the impacts of land use change, pollution, and habitat degradation in the context of a changing climate. The program brings the intended users of science into the research process so their perspective can inform problem definition, project implementation, and ultimately, the practical application of a project’s results to a particular problem.
