Long Bay Near-Shore Water Quality Management

Welcome to the Long Bay Near-shore Water Quality Management Website.

With support from the Carolinas Coastal Ocean Observing and Prediction System (Caro-COOPS), the Southeast Atlantic Coastal Ocean Observing System (SEACOOS), and the Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA), this website is being developed to:

  1. Integrate historical, near-real time, and modeled marine and coastal observations in Long Bay;
  2. Provide easy access to this information through user-friendly, searchable “meta-data” records; and
  3. Foster the coordination of research and monitoring efforts in the region.

This web site is designed for both coastal resource managers and the local community. It relies on significant and ongoing input from local, regional, state and federal research efforts in the area. Information on the site can be used to monitor current water quality conditions in the area; watch for changes in local water quality and provide insight on historical environmental conditions of the area.
