NH Line awarded at PICES

The North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) has selected the Newport Hydrographic Line as the 2017 PICES Ocean Monitoring Service Award winner.  The PICES Ocean Monitoring Service Award (POMA) aims to recognize organizations, groups and outstanding individuals that have contributed significantly to the advancement of marine science in the North Pacific through long-term ocean monitoring and data management. The award also strives to enlighten the public on the importance of those activities as fundamental to marine science. It draws attention to an important aspect of the PICES Convention that is not so much in the limelight: "to promote the collection and exchange of information and data related to marine scientific research in the area concerned."

Thanks to all of you have made measurements on the NH line, past, present and future. Your hard efforts are recognized internationally. Let’s keep the sampling going another 50+ years!
