|NURP is comprised of a network of regional centers of
undersea science and technology excellence located primarily at major
universities. This extramural network facilitates collaborations with
programs outside NOAA, leverages external funds and infrastructure
and provides access to world-class expertise and students. Federal
grants support six regional centers and a national technology institute
that undergo periodic external review. NURP supports over 100 projects
each year that involve hundreds of scientists and students from across
the country. NURP projects are selected by a rigorous peer-review
process based on scientific merit and relevance to NOAA and national
research requirements. These projects typically lead to peer-reviewed
publications being added to the scientific literature.
