The Center for Coastal Resources Management (CCRM) conducts basic and applied research on the structure and functions of both tidal and nontidal wetlands, collaborating with researchers throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Applied research focuses on policy option analysis, functional assessment methods, inventory and monitoring techniques, and creation/restoration protocols. CCRM provides extensive support to the Commonwealth through training of local and state managers, research, development and management of data bases, and supporting regulatory program activities.
