The U-M Water Center, part of the Graham Sustainability Institute, is coordinating the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) Science Collaborative, working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and partners.

Opportunities for faculty researchers: The Science Collaborative supports research, assessment, and transfer activities that address critical coastal management issues identified by the NERRS in order to improve the long-term stewardship of the nation’s valuable estuaries.
