Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology, University of New Hampshire
Data Center Description
The Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) is a leader in transforming the best available science into practical, innovative tools that coastal managers need to address their priority challenges. CICEET is a partnership of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of New Hampshire.
CICEET is governed by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by NOAA’s Under Secretary for Oceans and Atmosphere and the President of UNH. The MOU establishes two equal co-directors responsible for CICEET administration, describes the purpose and scope of CICEET, and establishes a Board of Advisors to advise the UNH Vice President for Research and Public Service. The Board is comprised of representatives from UNH, NOAA, New Hampshire Sea Grant, the National Estuarine Research Reserve System, the state Coastal Zone Management Program, and the Estuarine Research Federation.
Since its inception in 1997, CICEET has invested in more than 170 environmental technology development, demonstration, and application projects. The CICEET toolkit contains dozens of field ready tools to address a range of environmental challenges along the nation’s coasts.
