The Acadia Centre for Estuarine Research is located in the west wing of War Memorial House. The Centre includes a small library containing journals in microformat and standard texts dealing with estuarine and coastal waters. The primary objective of the Centre is to focus research attention on the estuaries and nearshore coastal waters of Eastern Canada, with emphasis on the estuarine systems of the Bay of Fundy and the hydrographically-related Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank.
