Some examples of research coordination the CBR has hosted or coordinated include:
The Katrina Environmental Research and Restoration Network (KERRN); After Hurricane Katrina, the CBR formed KERRN with support from the NSF to centralize information about environmental research efforts focused on understanding and responding to one of our nation's largest hurricane events. The network enabled scientists and others supported by different agencies or affiliated with various institutions to learn about the full range of research efforts in order to collaborate and coordinate research efforts. The Network also facilitated community brainstorming and identification of research gaps and needs.
