Abstract : The Coastal Oceanographic Processes (CoOP) program was formulated to promote interdisciplinary research in the coastal ocean. The goal of CoOP is to obtain a new level of quantitative understanding of the transports, transformations and fates of biogeochemically important matter over the continental margins. During the grant period we developed a document on data standards and archiving; prepared an implementation plan for a joint CoOP/GLOBEC California Current study; and, released an Announcement of Opportunity for a Great Lakes Process study.
