Pacific Rocky Intertidal Monitoring: Trends and Synthesis
This project receives support from all participating research groups, which provide the resources and personnel necessary for sustaining a project of this magnitude. We would like to give special acknowledgement to three groups that have provided generous, long-term funding, without which the project would not be possible: BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management), PISCO (Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans), and NPS (National Parks Service).
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is the bureau in the Department of the Interior responsible for managing development of the nation's offshore energy and mineral resources in an environmentally sound manner. These resources include offshore wave and wind energy, oil and gas, and marine minerals.
California Sea Grant supports science-based management, conservation and enhancement of California's coastal and aquatic resources through research, extension and education.
The fundamental purpose of the National Park Service is to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of this and future generations.
The Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans is a long-term ecosystem research and monitoring program established with the goals of: understanding dynamics of the coastal ocean ecosystem along the U.S. west coast, sharing that knowledge so ocean managers and policy makers can make science-based decisions regarding coastal and marine stewardship, and producing a new generation of scientists trained in interdisciplinary collaborative approaches.
