Title: Partnering with NOAA to Quantify and Monitor Environmental Attributes of Kachemak Bay

Project Year and Number: 2001: 01385

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: None

Principal Investigator (PI): Carl Schoch, Kachemak Bay Research Reserve

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Kachemak Bay

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified

Abstract: The increasing number of stresses on marine and estuarine ecosystems has challenged scientists and resource managers to find methods for determining temporal rates and spatial extents of ecological responses to changes in environmental conditions. This project will provide the necessary matching funds for the Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve to establish a monitoring program of oceanographic environmental attributes in Kachemak Bay. Results of ongoing studies will then be able to link patterns of oceanographic changes to patterns of biodiversity in the marine and estuarine intertidal and subtidal habitats of Kachemak Bay.
