The National Center for Coral Reef Research (NCORE) was founded in response to the need for critical information on how to best assess and manage coral reefs.  Located on the campus of the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami, it serves as an integrative umbrella organization for coral reef research and education at the University, covering a wide range of disciplines.

The Center' organizes interdisciplinary research projects, forums, workshops and educational programs, pulling together highly effective teams of scientists from the biological, physical, social and economic sciences. Vital coral reef issues are addressed with tightly integrated field, laboratory and modeling investigations employing state-of-the-art technology in computer science. NCORE has a strong focus on data assimilation and visualization, on developing advanced decision support systems, and on improving state, national, regional and global education and public awareness. It seeks to bridge gaps among science, resource management and public knowledge. Strong collaborations with research and management agencies, universities, non-governmental groups, and the private sector are integral to NCORE's success.
