“Forecasting hurricanes, mapping coral reefs, monitoring climate change, operating tsunami warning systems, managing fisheries and producing navigation charts are just a few of the NOAA services of economic and environmental importance to the people of the Caribbean. Given the diversity and geographic extent of projects across the region, sharing best practices and communicating the status and coordination of science, service and stewardship happening with NOAA and its partners in the region can be challenging. To aid this effort, the NOAA in the Caribbean collaborative was formed in 2010 and is launching its NOAA in the Caribbean Newsletter in February of 2012 as a means to better connect NOAA activities and scientists with the Caribbean region’s managers, partners, and decision makers. NOAA’s Southeast and Caribbean Regional Team and the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science support the collaborative and the newsletter.”
