CICEET posts progress reports on all investments made in research and technology development on its web site: These reports are part of CICEET?s ?Project Explorer,? an accessible, comprehensive online database. CICEET Project Briefs, also online, provide project updates in language accessible to the nonspecialist. CICEET produces an annual report each year that highlights program activities.

Every year, new residents pour into coastal areas, and with them, comes development. These new homes, roads, parking lots, and industries enrich local economies, but they also compromise the very qualities that make coastal living so attractive?clean water, thriving ecosystems, and the natural beauty that arises from the interface of land and sea. Balancing use of natural resources with the protection of human and environmental health is a national challenge, and to address it, we need the right tools. The Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) translates the problems of coastal resource managers into the research priorities of leading scientists. Through competitive funding pro?grams and strategic partnerships, CICEET fosters the development of innovative tools that are affordable, effective, and available to coastal managers nationwide. Created in 1997, the Institute is a partnership of the University of New Hampshire and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
