The interview phase is being performed by the UGA Marine Extension Service. The second phase is the development of the needed climate products using the information collected in the interview phase. The second phase is being performed by the State Climatology Offices in Florida and Georgia. The third phase is testing and web-based product with the user community and improving the product based on users' comments. The third phase involves Marine Extension Service and the State Climatology Offices.
