  • Identifies six goals:
    • Goal 1—Understand nearshore ecosystem processes and linkages to watershed and marine systems.
    • Goal 2—Understand the effects of human activities on nearshore ecosystem processes.
    • Goal 3—Understand and predict the incremental and cumulative effects of restoration and preservation actions on nearshore ecosystems.
    • Goal 4—Understand the effects of social, cultural, and economic values on restoration and protection of nearshore ecosystems.
    • Goal 5—Understand the relations of nearshore processes to important ecosystem functions including human health and protection of at-risk species.
    • Goal 6—Understand the roles of information—its representation, conceptualization, organization, and interpretation—in restoring nearshore ecosystem processes.
