CRC continues, as it has for over 40 years, to work in the Ocean State at our headquarters on the campus of the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography. Seated at the mouth of Narragansett Bay, we develop and apply coastal management policies and plans which extend up the Bay and throughout all of its many tributaries which characterize our small state. In this way, our own backyard serves as a “living laboratory” in which we can test and improve tools and techniques for protecting and enhancing our marine-based economic, social and environmental resources.
