This site is an oceanographic data repository for Dr. Barbara Hickey's research group at the University of Washington. All data listed below are available to the public. These data have been collected with support from a variety of sources including Washington Sea Grant, the NOAA Coastal Ocean Program, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Office of Naval Research, the NOAA National Undersea Research Program, the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences, Washington State Parks Service, and the Olympic Coast Marine Sanctuary.
The statements, findings, conclusions, and recommendations are those of the investigators/participants/authors and do not reflect the views of NSF, NOAA or the Department of Commerce.
