TheDay.com: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is moving in with the U.S. Coast Guard at Fort Trumbull so the 2 agencies can share resources and work more closely together on the Arctic and other issues.

“They have a large maritime role just like we do, and to not leverage each other in these days, with the budget realities we face, would be crazy,” said Capt. Alan Arsenault, commanding officer of the Coast Guard Research and Development Center. “They have capabilities we need and vice versa. The bottom line is, it’s the right thing to do because we’re both federal organizations and there are some synergies with the existing work we’re doing.”
