The CoastWatch mission is to provide and ensure timely access to near real-time satellite data to monitor, restore, and manage U.S. coastal ocean resources, in addition to understanding climate variability and change to further enhance society's quality of life. Our primary users include Federal, State, and local coastal resource managers, marine scientists, and the general public.

There are two components to CoastWatch: Central Operations and Regional Nodes. Central Operations, managed by NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), coordinates the processing, delivery, quality control and storage of data products. The six regional nodes are made up of other NOAA line offices that participate in the CoastWatch Program. They are located around the country to provide near real-time data distribution and regional scientific expertise to the local user community. Together, central operations and the regional nodes form the distribution pathway for CoastWatch data products.

The East Coast Node, located at NOAA's Chesapeake Bay Office in Annapolis, MD, provides remote sensing data and products for regions from Maine to Florida. Anyone may access data free of charge. CoastWatch data is used by local managers and scientists in a variety of ways including ecological forecasting, monitoring algal blooms, tracking sediment plumes, and studying temperature effects on fish distributions.
