Changes in Oceanographic Systems Evidence Base

As part of the risk retirement process, OES-Environmental has developed "evidence bases" for several key stressors. The evidence bases are lists of key research papers and monitoring reports for each stressor that support risk retirement for small numbers of MRE devices. The evidence base for changes in oceanographic systems has been compiled for tidal and wave below. This collection has been reviewed externally for completeness and accuracy.

Additional information on Changes in Oceanographic Systems can be found on the Tethys Knowledge Base and in Chapter 7 of the 2020 State of the Science Report.
