Science Panel Recommendation: Fund
Science Panel Comments: This proposal is responsive to the Invitation and the PI is qualified to complete the work. This project is an expansion of a four bay study initiated under the Sound Ecosystem Assessment (SEA) program to examine hydrographic and circulation patterns in PWS. It will share a platform and information with projects collecting plankton data (Kline) and distribution and abundance measurements of herring (Thorne). Gay should work closely with Crawford to combine similar data collections on multiple geographic scales. The Panel also recommends that at least two addition CDT units be deployed in PWS and additional funding be provided to the PI for these units.
Science Director Recommendation: Fund
