Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking Project
Title: Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking Project
Title abbreviated: POST
Contributor: McKinley, Scott; et al.
Abstract: The Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST) Project is a tool for tracking the movements of marine animals along the west coast of North America, using acoustic transmitters implanted in a variety of species, and a series of receivers running in lines across the continental shelf. POST was one of seventeen projects of the Census of Marine Life, a 10-year international effort to assess the global distribution, diversity and abundance of life in the oceans - past, present and future. The Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST) Project's mission is to further understanding of the behaviour of marine animals through the operation of a large-scale ocean telemetry and data management system. POST serves as an accessible research tool for academe, resource agencies and the public. Long-term monitoring of marine animals will contribute to the conservation and stewardship of marine resources. [Information of the supplier]
