Research Location: Resurrection Bay, Gulf of Alaska shelf

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified

Abstract: Interannual variations in the temperature and salinity of Gulf of Alaska shelf waters could significantly influence this ecosystem and, therefore, the recovery and restoration of organisms and services affected by the oil spill. This variability is best quantified from long time series such as that gathered over 30 years at a hydrographic station near Seward (GAK 1). This project will continue this time series to quantify variability on this shelf. It will also attempt to establish relationships between Seward sea level and shelf salinity and regional atmospheric pressure patterns and discharge variability. The data and the analyses will aid in designing a cost-effective ecosystem-monitoring program.
