CoOP Special Issue in Oceanography
Contact Rick Jahnke for more information.
The December 2008 issue of The Oceanography Society's journal Oceanography was a CoOP special issue on coastal ocean processes. Contributors included principal investigators from all of CoOP's projects. Some of the papers were so timely that a significant portion of the work cited in them was still in review at press time. The following manuscripts were cited as 'in review' in one or more papers in the special issue. Those listed below with doi numbers are now published. Status of the remaining papers is included in each citation.
