Exploring Oregon’s Marine Reserves: ROVs, Video Landers and SMURFS!

This fall, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Marine Reserve Program released their Ecological Monitoring Plan for Oregon’s 5 marine reserve sites along our coast. As it generally goes, agency plans aren’t something we all like to saddle up to in our spare time for a good read, but this plan has some style and pop and is as much about discovering and seeing our ocean world through a whole a new and exciting suite of technologies as it is about the core research for marine reserve evaluation. What do “SMURFS” and “video landers” have to do with all of this? Dive in to learn a bit more.

Will New Beach Advisory Values Really Better Protect Public Health?

The Oregon Beach Monitoring Program (OBMP) and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) have scheduled a series of public meetings this week on the coast and next week in Portland to discuss adoption of a new, lower beach action value (BAV) and corresponding water quality criteria that will be used as the basis for public health advisories at Oregon beaches. The change comes from new EPA health criteria that Oregon is either required to adopt or provide a defensible alternative criteria. We’ve written a bit on these new advisory levels and the upcoming meetings, but questions still remain from coastal recreational users – will this really better protect public health and more importantly, what can be done to move towards solutions beyond “advisories” of the decline of our beach water quality?

King Tide Photo Project: Focuses (literally) attention on high tides and sea level rise

It’s that time again, October  27-29; November 24-27; and December 23-26 the King Tides return with the highest tides of 2015-2016.
