Pacific Rocky Intertidal Monitoring: Trends and Synthesis
We would like to give special thanks to Michael Frenock (Oregon State University) for the development and continual enhancement of the interactive map and graphing tool and Ben Miner (Western Washington University) for technical assistance in generating the trend graphs used throughout this website.
This study would not have been possible without the assistance and understanding of the Project Technical Officer, Mary Elaine Helix.
