Cordell Bank Issue Name: Research and Monitoring  

Problem Statement:
Although research and monitoring activities have been the cornerstone of CBNMS, a formalized long-term plan that highlights the importance of these activities needs to be developed for the site. Research and monitoring will continue to be a high priority and CBNMS staff will develop strong education and outreach programs to support these efforts. There are two specific areas the working groups for research and monitoring will focus on: 1) development of a coordinated and integrated research and monitoring program for CBNMS, and 2) explore the possibility of developing a specific water quality program that focuses on issues and impacts related to being an offshore site.
