NERACOOS Statement of Solidarity

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.

King Tide Media Event

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.

New Wave Buoy in Cape Cod Bay

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.
