The key roles of the Executive Director are to lead, manage, and inspire staff, principal investigators, partners, and board members to collectively sustain and improve a regional ocean observing system that is responsive to the information needs of the Northeast.
The Executive Director is the principal spokesperson for the organization and will travel extensively to represent NERACOOS locally, nationally, and occasionally internationally, and to provide regional leadership and guidance.

The 2018 Annual Impact Report is a snapshot into the ways in which NERACOOS provided ocean information for safety, resilience, and stewardship throughout the past year. Take a look to learn more about our projects, system operators, and financials, and read a letter from Dr. Ru Morrison, our Executive Director. We're looking forward to continuing our work in 2019 and beyond!
A changing climate greatly impacts Maine’s coastal communities. Vulnerable areas, such as Camp Ellis, are already experiencing challenges associated with sea level rise, and more frequent and intense storm events. In an effort to measure these changes and respond accordingly a new tide gauge has been installed by the USGS on the Saco River.
A new high-tech wave-monitoring buoy, supported by state and federal agencies, was recently deployed in Cape Cod bay. The buoy will provide sea-state information in Cape Cod Bay to improve safety and efficiency of marine transportation as mariners approach or exit the Cape Cod Canal. Please see MassDEP Press Release for more information about this project.
U.S. IOOS has awarded a new 5-year cooperative agreement to NERACOOS that will continue to fund the production, integrations and delivery of critical ocean information. Click here for more information about the award and our partners.
