Long-term marine water & sediment data

We document and assess current conditions and long-term changes in the diverse marine regions of our state with modern sensors and widely recognized methods, in order to understand natural and human influences objectively and quantitatively.

Our marine monitoring program collects, manages, and provides free access to high quality data.

These data describe the physics, chemistry, and biological conditions of the water column and sediment. Data quality assurance plans and continuously vigilant quality control assure data reliabilty.
