Coastal Intensive Site Network

Project Description
This project is part of a nationwide project cooperatively funded by
EPA, NOAA and NASA, termed "CISNet" (Coastal Intensive Site
Network).

The objects of CISNet are:

To develop a sound scientific basis for understanding ecological
responses to anthropogenic stresses in coastal environments.

To demonstrate the usefulness of a set of intensively monitored sites
for examining short-term variability in long-term trend behavior in
the relationships between changes in environmental stressors.

To provide intensively monitored sites for development and evaluation
of change in coastal systems.
