MARINe Committees  


  • The MARINe Steering Committee provides management direction and ensures continuous funding of the data collection.
  • The 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 evaluate new protocols and technologies and jointly review data for peer reviewed publications.
  • The MARINe Database Panel provided the expertise initially to set up the database. A subset of the original group regularly queries the data to ensure data accuracy.
  • The MARINe Survey Teams conduct the monitoring at established sites.
