As we’ve witnessed the events of the past six weeks, it has become clear that we, as an organization, have work to do. This extraordinary moment fills us with hope that justice and equity for people of color are finally within reach. The Northeastern United States is home to a number of communities of color across our varied coastal zone. These communities’ voices are crucial to making sound decisions about how best to utilize ocean resources and adapt to change.
Our mini-proposal request portal is open! If you have an idea for a project that is strategically interesting and relevant to NERACOOS and our stakeholders, submit it using this form. Mini-proposal submissions will be considered for inclusion in our five-year proposal for IOOS in response to NOAA-NOS-IOOS-2021-2006475.
Springtime’s longer days and better weather usually herald a frenzy of activity, yet here we are, stuck in a pandemic Twilight Zone--not to mention, where’s the better weather?
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!
