Partners in Science: Offshore Wind and the Mid-Atlantic Cold Pool

Offshore wind developers and coastal managers need accurate information about the ocean to responsibly introduce wind energy to the Mid-Atlantic Bight. On July 17, 2019, MARACOOS co-sponsored a workshop that brought together developers, state and federal agencies, commercial fishers, and scientific researchers to discuss the oceanographic features of the Mid-Atlantic Bight Cold Pool that impact offshore wind. Workshop participants will produce a white paper stating the needs of the industries and proposing ideas for the future progress of offshore wind in the Mid-Atlantic.
