Story: COS research cited in new White House report
A new report titled "America's Oceans: A Decadal Vision," released by the White House National Science and Technology Council, featured COS research. EcoCast, an ecosystem forecast tool, was developed by researchers at Stanford, NOAA and other research institutions. It combines satellite data of ocean conditions, records from fisheries observers and species tracking data to pinpoint ideal fishing areas on a daily basis. Tools like this ultimately help to protect endangered species, keep fisheries sustainable and support fishing communities.
