Cooperative Institute for Climate and Ocean Research
The Cooperative Institute for Climate and Ocean Research (CICOR) formalizes a major collaborative relationship between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).
CICOR provides a framework at WHOI for coordinating NOAA-funded research and for developing cooperative NOAA-funded research at academic institutions in the northeastern United States. CICOR also provides NOAA investigators with access to WHOI facilities, including 4 ships and 2 submersibles, and the Northeast National Ion Microprobe Facility.
The CICOR research themes are:
- The coastal ocean and near shore processes
- The ocean's participation in climate and climate variability
- Marine ecosystem processes analysis.
