dc.description.abstract The United States National Park Service (NPS) protects and preserves unparalleled natural aquatic resource diversity. Ecosystems range from marine coral reefs, freshwater lakes and estuaries, to cave system aquifers; the NPSs unique resources are unmatched. The National Park Service Dive program consists of thirty programs that span the United States and its outlying territories. Each program is governed by the National Park Diving Control board under the authority of the Law Enforcement, Security, and Emergency Services department of the National Park Service. The National Park Mission Statement outlines . . .The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation. . . In an effort to conserve and protect these areas the NPS encourages natural and cultural research within the parks. The National Park Service and The American Academy of Underwater Sciences are working to establish a formal relationship to bring the academic and diving capabilities shared by the two organizations together to provide researchers opportunities and to investigate topics that promote natural and cultural resource conservation. This paper explains the scope of the National Park Service Dive program, a description of individual park capabilities, opportunities available for research within the parks, and the benefits of developing partnerships with individual parks. en_US
