External Advisory Board
The External Advisory Board (EAB) provides CMOP with advice and feedback. EAB members come from many parts of the country and share with CMOP the vision of developing a new way of researching and understanding coastal marine environments in a highly integrated fashion, beginning at the microbial level and working upwards to climatological scales.
