MARINe is a
partnership of agencies, universities and private organizations who work together to study rocky shores.
MARINe Steering Committee provides management direction and ensures continuous funding of the data collection.
MARINe Science Panel developed the protocols, tested the data to determine spacing and timing, and provided critical guidance on the database development. They continue to meet to evaluate new protocols and technologies and jointly review data.
MARINe Database Panel provided the expertise to set up the database. A subset of the original group meets regularly to query the data and ensure data accuracy.
