Abstract: This proposal seeks support to expand the Long Term Environmental Monitoring (LTEMP) of the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’ Advisory Council (PWSRCAC) in a manner that will make it substantially more powerful in its ability to detect environmental changes induced by petroleum contamination, and possibly other contaminants that have recently been identified as potential insults to the region. This expansion is designed to address the needs of both the PWSRCAC and the GEM programs, in part by combining resources of both organizations. The proposed design incorporates and integrates the existing NOAA and LTEMP monitoring datasets, and proposes a modest enlargement of effort to monitor at a substantially larger spatial scale. Most of the expansion is intended to implement a random-sampling based design that is currently being developed under an FY2004 Trustee Council funded project (Trustee Project 040724: Short - FY04 - Monitoring Exxon Valdez Oil).
