NERACOOS, the Northeastern Regional Association of Coastal Ocean Observing Systems, is collecting and delivering quality and timely ocean and weather information to users throughout the Northeast United States and Canadian Maritimes. To achieve this, NERACOOS supports integrated coastal and ocean observing and modeling activities that feed user defined information products. NERACOOS works collaboratively with regional and local partners including the Northeast Regional Ocean Council (NROC), a state and federal partnership created by the six New England governors.
