Natural and Human-Induced Change in Monterey Bay and the California Current System

Project Manager: Tim Pennington
Lead Scientist: Francisco Chavez

The Chavez lab continues its times series work in Monterey Bay, using moorings, ships, and autonomous undersea vehicles (AUVs). The program in the past has identified a number of natural rhythms, and now seeks to identify human impacts on the natural system by focusing on system components in the near-shore region.
