NURP Projects

NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP) projects are conducted through the Caribbean Marine Research Center at the Perry Institute for Marine Science. The Caribbean Marine Research Center is one of six national centers designated by the United States government that support undersea research and scientific exploration through NURP. NURP projects provide the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) with the information they need to protect and manage America's living marine and coastal resources.
