The preservation and health of the Nation’s coastal and marine environments depend on well informed management of risks posed by natural hazards and on the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. The Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center of the USGS supports science-based decision making by Federal, State, and local policymakers to meet these challenges.
