Funding Recommendations

Scientific & Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) Recommendation: Fund

Scientific & Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) Comments: Proposal is responsive to the FY 03 Phase II Invitation and has good coordination with community programs, including Youth Area Watch (projects 030210 and 030610). The results of this project are expected to assist GEM in identifying the variables that should be monitored in certain nearshore, soft benthic habitats. In addition, the project provides a pilot effort for involving local communities and science organizations in nearshore planning and site selection, and thus building local capacity and outreach.
