The Chesapeake Bay Sentinel Site Cooperative (CBSSC) is a group of ecosystem-based study sites across the Chesapeake Bay that:
- Work together to measure the impacts of sea level rise in the Bay.
- Work with partners to apply scientific findings produced at sentinel sites to help communities prepare for coastal flooding and other effects of changing climate conditions.
- Work in partnership with coastal managers, decision makers, and community liaisons.
The CBSSC is one of the five sentinel site cooperatives within the national NOAA Sentinel Site Program (SSP).
