Long-Standing Partnership with Coastal Response Research Center Extended to 2026
OCTOBER 4, 2021 ─ The Coastal Response Research Center (CRRC) at University of New Hampshire (UNH) successfully responded to a Broad Agency Announcement to continue its work with the science of all-hazard incidents and oil spills.
During the five-year operational period of 2021-2026, CRRC will focus its work on six topics and emphasize scientific study and experimentation: all hazards preparedness, tools and technologies, natural resource assessment and restoration, data access and use, Arctic challenges, and human dimensions. The goal of the Center is to reduce the consequences of spills and other hazards that threaten coastal environments and communities by conducting research, developing new response and restoration methods, and transferring technology to practitioners. NOAA’s co-director is currently Troy Baker (Regional Resource Coordinator with Assessment and Restoration Division), while Dr. Nancy Kinner is the permanent UNH co-director. The UNH CRRC website has a wealth of information on past and current research, projects, workshops and reports.
