  • advance the understanding of the complex interconnected environmental processes within the coastal zone through basic and applied research, 
  • train the next generation of coastal scientists to apply this knowledge to predict coastal environmental behavior and aid in addressing environmental issues important to society, and
  • communicate the best science available to help society effectively manage critical coastal natural resources and the economies dependent upon them.
