Abstract: This project is the Program Management Component I of the integrated Long-term Monitoring of Marine Conditions and Injured Resources proposal submitted by Lindeberg et al. (2016) to the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council. This project explicitly provides for program coordination and science synthesis of data collected under the long-term monitoring program, which we refer to as Gulf Watch Alaska (GWA). The GWA Program Management II proposal compliments this proposal and addresses administration, logistics, and outreach. The leadership team of the GWA program (comprised of PM I and II) manage over two dozen principal investigators and collaborators producing a wealth of scientific information on the northern Gulf of Alaska ecosystem and spill-affected area. Program coordination and science synthesis is a key component that improves linkages between monitoring efforts spanning large regional areas (Prince William Sound, Gulf of Alaska shelf, lower Cook Inlet). Program coordination includes facilitating program planning and sharing of information between principal investigators, other Trustee funded programs, and non-Trustee organizations. High quality products and science synthesis efforts help communicate monitoring results by delivering reports, publishing data, developing scientific papers, supporting outreach and integrating information across the entire program. The GWA program has matured in the first five years and successful management of the program will continue into the next five year increment.
