WWWhat's Trending: Coastal Storms
In mid-January 2014, 10 projects were funded to improve hazard warnings for Tri-State residents—see "NOAA and Sea Grant Announce Projects for $1.4M Coastal Storm Awareness Program (CSAP)."

“This work should lead to an improved response from coastal residents in the face of impending storms. A better understanding of the true implications of extreme weather threats like Sandy is a step forward in building a Weather-Ready Nation," said Peyton Robertson, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Chair of the Sandy Assessment Team.

All news and information related to CSAP—a partnership between NOAA and Sea Grant programs in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut—can be found at www.nyseagrant.org/csap.

What Is New York Sea Grant? ...

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York, is one of 33 university-based programs under the National Sea Grant College Program (NSGCP) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The NSGCP engages this network of the nation’s top universities in conducting scientific research, education, training and extension projects designed to foster science-based decisions about the use and conservation of our aquatic resources.

Through its statewide network of integrated services, NYSG has been promoting coastal vitality, environmental sustainability, and citizen awareness about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources since 1971.
