A map of the coastal waters of southern New England indicating the project’s geographic scope. The sea-level rise and water quality components are concentrated on Buzzards Bay, which lies between the Massachusetts south coast and Cape Cod and is identified with the black box in the left panel and enlarged in the right panel. The Buzzards Bay watershed is outlined in the right panel. The study region for climate change and fisheries component is displayed by the onshore-offshore set of red grid boxes (left panel) spanning from nearshore waters to the continental slope. The maps also highlight the location of different parts of the Pioneer regional ocean observation network (black dots; blue and green boxes) that is being built off southern New England as part of the NSF-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative and that will provide a link between our local and regional field work and the national oceanographic research community.
