Tide Gage Monitoring
The Alliance conducts research to deepen our understanding of coastal resources and processes throughout the Pleasant Bay system. This research provides a basis for management recommendations and best practices related to coastal structures, beach nourishment, and dredging and long-term planning to protect coastal resources and minimize coastal hazards.

The Alliance has a long-standing collaboration with Center for Coastal Studies, under the direction of Dr. Graham Giese, to monitor trends in tidal data. Download tidal data studies conducted by Center for Coastal Studies below:
