  The GCRC staff address specific scientific issues by holding regular meetings with coastal researchers and managers, maintaining this website as a clearinghouse for information on research activities, synthesizing technical information, and coordinating research efforts on emerging coastal resource issues. 

Our focus areas include:

  • Regional Planning - delineate the coastal research needs of the southeast region* and implement a plan to address them. This effort is described in detail in our partner website, www.gcrc.uga.edu/sarrp.htm [opens in new window].
    *(North and South Carolina, Georgia and the Atlantic coast of Florida)

  • Marsh Dieback - investigating the causes and extent of saltmarsh vegetation thinning along the Georgia coast

  • Coastal Water Quality - including freshwater inflow, watershed assessments, indicators, metadata access
