The Coastal Ocean Processes CoOP program seeks to plan and implement multi-investigator, interdisciplinary research in the coastal ocean. CoOP encompasses the disciplines of Biological, Chemical, Geological and Physical Oceanography, plus Marine Meteorology. The goal of CoOP is to obtain a new level of quantitative understanding of the processes that dominate the transports, transformations and fates of biologically, chemically and geologically important matter on continental margins. CoOP s underlying scientific planning assumption is that a series of well designed, interdisciplinary processes studies at locations that are characterized by different combinations of fundamental transport processes will provide significant new information to advance our understanding of coastal oceans and be applicable to continental margins around the world. Coupled process studies and modeling are the core of CoOP research programs.
