Taking the Pulse of Coastal Ocean Life — Together
MarineGEO’s research aims to answer two big questions:
How is global change altering coastal marine ecosystems?
And how does diverse marine life provide resilience to that change?
Understanding global change requires global coordination. We draw on our network’s diverse brain trust to design research, and use a common toolkit and data management. Our territory is the nearshore — coral and oyster reefs, seagrass meadows, kelp forests, and salt marshes. Our work has three main components:
