The Florida COOS Consortium consists of a number of organizations with an interest in the marine environment. By applying local expertise, cutting-edge research, and high-tech instruments we provide information and develop solutions to help decision-makers, citizens, and visitors to better protect, manage, and use our beautiful surrounding coastal ocean environment. The ocean touches the lives of every Floridian and Florida COOS is here to help monitor, understand, forecast and preserve this precious resource.
