The CoastWatch mission is to provide access to near real-time and long-term satellite data to monitor, restore, and manage U.S. coastal and ocean resources, in addition to understanding ecosystems and climate to further enhance society's quality of life. Our primary users include federal, state, and local coastal resource managers, marine scientists, commercial companies, 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 affiliated with other NOAA line offices that participate in the CoastWatch Program. They are located around the country to provide data distribution and regional scientific expertise in oceanographic remote sensing to their regional and local user communities.

The East Coast Node provides remote sensing data products and customized decision-making applications 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 populations. We work with regional and local stakeholders to build customized applications for environmental mangagement and decision-making. We are hosted within the National Ocean Service and the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office
