Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies Library, Florida State University

Data Center Description
COAPS performs research in air-sea interaction, ocean, and coupled air-sea
modelling, climate prediction on scales of months to decades, statistical
studies and predictions of social economic consequences of the
ocean-atmospheric variations.

Message from the director
"The Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies trains scientists in
Meteorology and Physical Oceanography. COAPS is the focus at the Florida State
University for research in interannual and interdecadal variability of the
Earth's climate as affected by the tropical and mid-latitude oceans. We are
funded by several federal agencies to produce original published papers that
advance our understanding of the ocean and the atmopshere. In recent years
COAPS has been internationally recognized for its studies on the impact of El
Nino on severe weather."
