We are pleased to introduce the NOAA in the Caribbean Newsletter.
Forecasting hurricanes, mapping coral reefs, monitoring climate change, operating tsunami warning systems, managing fisheries and producing navigation charts are just a few of the NOAA services of economic and environmental importance to the people of the Caribbean.
Given the diversity and geographic extent of projects across the region, sharing best practices and communicating the status and coordination of science, service and stewardship happening with NOAA and its partners in the region can be challenging. To aid this effort, the NOAA Southeast and Caribbean Regional Team has fostered development of the NOAA in the Caribbean collaborative, which was formed in 2010. With the support of the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, the NOAA in the Caribbean collaborative is launching its NOAA in the Caribbean Newsletter in February of 2012 as a means to better connect NOAA activities and personnel with the Caribbean region’s managers, partners, and decision makers.
This new quarterly publication is designed to engage and educate regional stakeholders about the on-the-ground science, management, and operations taking place throughout the Caribbean. As it evolves, the newsletter will continue to provide interesting news items on a variety of topics concerning the Caribbean audience, updates on new regional data and tools, announcements of funding opportunities, upcoming events and more.
The inaugural edition of the newsletter is attached as a pdf to this email and is available at
We welcome feedback on the newsletter style and content, and we are always interested in receiving contributions from across the Line Offices that help connect NOAA and partners in the Caribbean. Please e-mail us your feedback and story ideas to CaribbeanNews@....
Please share with colleagues who may be interested in the information in this newsletter.

NOAA’s Southeast and Caribbean Regional Team Lead Deputy Director of NOAA’s Coastal Services Center
