Quileute Indian Tribe Real-Time Hypoxia Monitoring Moorings

Recipient: Quileute Indian Tribe

Federal Funding: $400,000

Summary: This funding will be used to better understand and predict hypoxia events along the Washington shelf. To do this, the Quileute Tribe and the Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington, will improve real-time hypoxia monitoring and prediction by refurbishing and redesigning the two existing monitoring systems and building one new system. These systems will measure and report existing near-bottom oxygen concentration, and will predict the movement of hypoxic conditions. Data processed through the laboratory will supply critical information needs identified through the West Coast Ocean Alliance and the West Coast Ocean Data Portal.
