ARC - Science and Research
Opportunities for Research
CACO has a proud history of fostering both independent and collaborative research within its borders. The ARC plays a pivotal role in providing researchers the resources and facilities they need to carry out their work. Individuals interested in learning more about past and present research taking place at CACO should visit the NPS Research Permit and Reporting System website and review the archive of Investigator's Annual Reports. These reports are mandatory year-end summaries written by Principal Investigators (PI's) intended to record and communicate objectives and progress of all permitted research projects. In addition, interested parties should review the CACO Research Catalog document which provides an in depth description of the most pressing needs for CACO within the natural and cultural resource sciences. Please take the time to explore our various online resources in order to obtain a greater understanding of the dynamic of research taking place at CACO. Like the seashore itself, research at the park is diverse and ever changing; please contact us for the most up-to-date information in your area of interest.
