I ran into this:

the National Park Service’s Southeast Coast Network Climate Science Support Center

It seems odd because it has too many noun modifiers. I understand this as:

The Center which Supports Climate Science (Climatology) in the area of Southeast Coast Network, which is (and this Center is) a part of the organization National Park Service.

Am I right?

This is apparently the Support Center for Climate Science affiliated with the Southeast Coast Network, owned by the National Park Service, which presumably has several such Networks.

So - I think your understanding is correct.

  • You mean Southeast Coast Network is an organization? I felt it is talking about a geographic concept.

    @Juya It is definitely ambiguous there, but their page here suggests that it is indeed an organization.

  • @HarrisWeinstein Thanky you. I checked it,The Southeast Coast I&M Network is one of 32 National Park Service I&M Networks across the country established to facilitate collaboration, information sharing, and economies of scale in natural resource monitoring., and I think it is a geographic concept.

  • +1 At any rate, there's no such thing as "network climate". Sep 7 '16 at 16:50
