Data Center Description
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's)
Coastal Services Center (CSC) is a coastal science and resource
advisory center that draws on the expertise of NOAA and its partners
to address critical coastal resource issues. Established in 1994 in
Charleston, South Carolina, the Center's mission is to identify,
develop, and facilitate the use of technologies and information that
support use and management of coastal resources. The Center will
serve to "bridge the gap" between coastal scientists and resource
managers by bringing Center staff, technologies, and outside partner
expertise to bear on national problems related to coastal ecosystems
and economies.
