Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund
Chief Scientist Comments: This is an ongoing project that is continuing to document the rate of degradation (vandalism, erosion, etc.) at archaeological sites in the spill area. Annual visitation of four of the index sites, as originally proposed, is probably unnecessary. However, the proposal was revised to incorporate visits to a combination of new (98007C proposal) and existing sites.

Executive Director Recommendation: Fund
Executive Director Comments: This project monitors archaeological sites injured by vandalism and oiling. In FY 98, by combining the 98007C proposal with this project, the sites to be monitored will include some sites on land recently acquired through the Trustee Council's habitat protection program as well as index sites and other sites of concern on public land.
