Executive Director Recommendation: Fund
Executive Director Comments: Fund revised proposal, which reduces the project's scope to providing matching funds for the purchase of oceanographic instruments that will enable the Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (KBNERR) to begin a long-term monitoring program. Seventy percent of the funds for this purpose are being provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; the Trustee Council's contribution represents the required 30 percent match. The KBNERR will be responsible for maintaining these instruments with non-EVOS funds. Trustee Council contribution to this effort does not indicate the Council's intent to include these sites under GEM (Gulf Ecosystem Monitoring, the Council's long-term research and monitoring program).
