The primary research and outreach arm of the Gupta College of Science for marine and coastal-related issues is the Burroughs & Chapin Center for Marine and Wetland Studies. Through its research and outreach activities, the center actively partners with federal and state agencies, local communities, and the private sector to infuse the best available science into natural resource management benefiting the public.
By providing direct opportunities to participate in real-world studies, access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and applications, and diverse professionals within the center and partnering agencies and universities, the center significantly advances the training and professional and academic development of Coastal Carolina University students in the area of marine and wetland sciences, management and policy.
