The South Atlantic Sea Grant programs are university-based research, extension, and outreach institutions dedicated to fostering understanding, wide use, and stewardship of the coastal and marine resources of the South Atlantic region.
Scientists, natural resources managers, conservationists and the ecological restoration community are encouraged to attend the summit and share experiences, network with colleagues and become involved in shaping the future of tidal creeks in the Southeast.

NOAA Research scientists have taken advantage of opportunities to study and learn from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. What they learned not only helped guide the response to Deepwater Horizon, but also will be applicable to oil spills that may take place in the future.
While the oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill has not reached the Atlantic Coast, the South Atlantic Sea Grant programs are closely monitoring the situation and will provide access to as much information and data as possible.
Already, the South Atlantic Sea Grant programs have convened two summits bringing together leading researchers to analyze the potential impacts of the spill on the South Atlantic coast.
