Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund
Chief Scientist Comments: This project has great potential to examine one measure of marine productivity over the past 6,300 years and to compare this data with recently published work on sockeye salmon populations over a similar period. The principal investigators are well qualified and have written a creditable proposal. Fund revised proposal, which successfully addresses the issues of interpretation of stratigraphy raised by the reviewers.
