Coastal Science Serving South Carolina
The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium is a university-based program that generates and provides science-based information to support the wise use and conservation of South Carolina’s coastal resources and create a sustainable economy and environment.
We facilitate coastal and marine research by identifying and funding peer-reviewed projects that address critical data needs for our state and region.
We support the informational needs of coastal residents by making science-based information, expertise, and education about coastal issues available to the public.
We develop resources for educators and students such as educator training, education programs, and undergraduate and graduate support to further ocean science education.
Curbing flooding, encouraging native species, and reducing stormwater runoff through native-plant landscaping and the understanding of how water moves. By mimicking local ecosystems, green spaces attract native wildlife while also mitigating flood risks.
Two students recently completed their Margaret A. Davidson Undergraduate Resilience Research Scholars projects.
The Consortium is collaborating to conduct water quality analyses and hydrologic mapping in the Rosemont community in Charleston, S.C.
The first Sea Grant Blue Carbon Law Symposium convened around 140 participants to discuss coastal blue carbon ecosystems in the United States.
