Research Programs

North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NI-WB NERR)
  • The North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve is one of 26 sites around the coastal US. Each reserve receives funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and matched resources from the host state agency.
National Estuarine Research Reserve Centralized Data Management Office (NERR CDMO)
  • The Centralized Data Management Office (CDMO) was established in support of the System-wide Monitoring Program involving 25 sites around the US and Puerto Rico. The purpose of the CDMO, housed at the North Inlet-Winyah Bay, SC NERR, is the management of the basic infrastructure and data protocol to support the assimilation and exchange of data, metadata and information within the framework of NERRS sites, coastal zone management (CZM) programs, and other state and federally- funded education, monitoring and research programs.
Urbanization and Southeastern Estuarine Systems (USES) Project
  • The USES project is an ongoing, multidisciplinary study to assess and model the impacts of urban development on small, high salinity estuaries on the southeast coast of the United States.
Land Use - Coastal Ecosystem Study (LU-CES)
  • LU-CES seeks to improve our understanding of the population and socioeconomic trends that characterize the Southeastern coast, and how these trends affect our coastal ecosystems. This project has ended and is no longer funded. Therefore the link is no longer valid.
Carolinas Coastal Ocean Observing and Prediction System (Caro-COOPS)
  • A pre-operational system of integrated coastal observations and their application to user-driven research, societal, and economic needs.  A Partnership Among the University of South Carolina, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina-Wilmington.
South Carolina Algal Ecology Lab (SCAEL)
  • The South Carolina Algal Ecology Laboratory (SCAEL) was formed out of a unique partnership between the University of South Carolina’s Baruch Institute, and the Marine Resources Division of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR). Under the leadership of Dr. Dianne Greenfield, this laboratory is devoted to understanding the ecology of HABs. The SCAEL’s mission is to advance understanding of the natural and anthropogenic factors controlling the development of HABs, and the impacts of HABs on ecosystems, natural resources, and human health. Ultimately, the SCAEL seeks to arm management agencies with the tools needed to monitor, mitigate or prevent HAB outbreaks.
Mobile Link Organisms (LINKS) Project
  • The goal of the LINKS project is to quantify the roles of mobile animals, mainly fish and decapod crustaceans (collectively called nekton), in processing and transporting materials within and between marsh-estuarine systems and subsystems. This project has ended and is no longer funded. The website will no longer be updated.
