For data requests, please contact Melissa Miner and Rani Gaddam. The following information should be included in your email to expedite the process:

  • Name

  • Position title (student, professor etc.)

  • Mailing address

  • Phone

  • Email address

  • Organization or Institutional affiliation  

In addition, please summarize a) the project you are working on and how these data fit into this project; b) the type of information you are looking for, such as: specific species info, specific site info (location etc.), and from which sites you want information; and c) the time frame in which you have to obtain the information.

We also ask that you agree to provide us with copies of any data products that use these data. In addition, before considering publication, please discuss your analyses with us to ensure that we are able to inform you of any data oddities that might affect your results.

Please understand that we cannot always process a request immediately and it may take some time to collect the information, especially if we are in the field.


We encourage collaborative (co-authorship) efforts with MARINe scientists, and also ask that users of MARINe data please acknowledge MARINe in all publications containing these data. Because MARINe is a consortium of different groups, please also acknowledge the research groups that collected these data and the funding groups associated with these data, by using a statement similar to the example below:

'This study utilized data collected by the Multi-Agency Rocky Intertidal Network (MARINe): a long-term ecological consortium funded and supported by many groups. Please visit for a complete list of the MARINe partners responsible for monitoring and funding these data. Data management has been primarily supported by BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management), NPS (National Parks Service), The David & Lucile Packard Foundation, and United States Navy.'
