Abstract: In March 1999, the Trustee Council earmarked an estimated $120 million of Restoration Reserve funds for a long-term monitoring and research program in the spill area and adjacent northern Gulf of Alaska. Development of what is now called the Gulf Ecosystem Monitoring and Research (GEM) program was initiated in FY 99 and will continue through FY 02. In FY 00, a draft GEM Science Program (April 2000) was developed and submitted to the National Research Council for review. In FY 01, follow-up on the National Research Council's recommendations on the GEM Science Program will occur. In addition, a draft Monitoring and Research Plan will be finalized in conjunction with spill-area stakeholders, resource managers, and the scientific community. The plan will be coordinated with such other large-scale programs as the U.S. Global Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics (GLOBEC), the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), and the Coastal-Global Ocean Observing System (C-GOOS), and then delivered for review to the National Research Council. This project will also help develop the FY 02 Invitation, which will request proposals for projects to accomplish the transition to GEM. Project 01630 will be accomplished through the combined efforts of the Restoration Office and Chief Scientist.
