Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund

Chief Scientist Comments: Archiving these specimens will make them accessible to the scientific community and others, which might be useful for GEM. The nearshore/subtidal specimens are of a higher priority. Fund revised proposal, which limits activity to nearshore/subtidal specimens only.

Executive Director Recommendation: Fund

Executive Director Comments: Fund revised proposal, which limits the project's scope to the archiving of nearshore/subtidal specimens only and clarifies the University's commitment to long-term maintenance of the specimens. This project addresses a worthwhile endeavor, which is archiving specimens from Project CH1A (Coastal Habitat Damage Assessment) at the University of Alaska Museum. The archives could serve an important reference function for GEM as well as provide a useful public service.
