Acknowledgements | MARINe

We would like to give special thanks to Michael Frenock (Oregon State University) for tremendous assistance in the development of the MARINe MySQL database, for continual enhancement of the interactive map and graphing tool on pacificrockyintertidal.org, and for the development and improvements to many aspects of seastarwasting.org. We’d also like to thank Ben Miner (Western Washington University) for technical assistance in generating the trend graphs used throughout the web report.

We thank Lisa Gilbane and Mary Elaine Helix, our BOEM program managers, for their vision and encouragement of this long-term monitoring effort. We would also like to acknowledge the countless contributions from researchers, technicians, students, and volunteers who help collect and manage data, and without which, this program would not be possible.
