Abstract:

The long-term goal is the establishment of a centre of excellence for coastal and continental shelf research program in Ghana, through capacity development of researchers to contribute to international research efforts, and formulation of science-based policies for coastal area management. The program would also enhance maritime security and governance capacities of the Gulf of Guinea nations. Research programs are focused on medium-scale impacts i.e. shoreline evolution, assessment of meso-scale continental shelf events i.e. upwelling, and analyses of satellite imageries for Maritime Domain Awareness MDA.
