Description Long-term marine monitoring data are indispensable for establishing baselines, detecting trends, and understanding coastal marine systems. Yet the need exists to communicate that information in a way to attract public visibility and have greater scientific impact. Eyes Over Puget Sound (EOPS) was developed as an image-rich, story-driven, surface-condition report published two days after visiting the field. EOPS serves as an access point for a wide range of long-term monitoring information. Half a million downloads per year speak to the success of the program.

This chapter is pages 43-56 in the book, Coastal Ecosystems: Experiences and Recommendations for Environmental Monitoring Programs. Editor: Maria-Teresa Sebastia. Copyright 2015 by Nova Science Publishers, New York, NY.
