Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

The Coastal Resources Center and Rhode Island Sea Grant College Program at the URI Graduate School of Oceanography have published three case studies on marine spatial planning in the US. The reports examine the Rhode Island Ocean Special Area Management Plan, the San Francisco Bay, and the Washington coast. You may download the full-texts using the links above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
