The Cooperative Institute For Marine And Atmospheric Studies Is A NOAA Center Of Excellence To Increase Scientific Understanding Of Earth’s Oceans And Atmosphere.

The federally supported institute, located at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, brings together the research and educational resources of ten partner universities to provide research opportunities, educational training and outreach to students and postdoctoral scientists in NOAA-funded research.

Research Themes

Tropical weather observations, analysis, and prediction

Research conducted under this theme will address NOAA’s research and development needs spanning from observations through model improvements. It will result in:

Ocean and climate observations, analysis, and prediction

Research important for understanding and monitoring the ocean and coastal environment on a range of timescales, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean and Atlantic.


Ecosystem observations, modeling, forecasts, and management

Research on hurricanes and other tropical weather systems with a focus on the transition from research to operations.


Protection and restoration of marine resources

Research on hurricanes and other tropical weather systems with a focus on the transition from research to operations.
