About this collection

 Ocean Pulse was an environmental monitoring program of the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC). Conducted from 1977 to 1985, NEFSC staff performed field research and conducted laboratory experiments to gather data about the coastal waters of the Northeast and the relationship of those conditions to anthropogenic influences, and in particular, contaminants. Through diving and submersible studies, testing, and local surveys, Ocean Pulse amassed significant biochemical, microbiological, physiological, pathobiological, genetic, benthic and oceanographic data regarding Northeast coastal habitats and biota. In 1979, Ocean Pulse was combined with the Ocean Dumping Program and the Marine EcoSystems Analysis (MESA) program to create the unified Northeast Monitoring Program (NEMP), for which it also served as the prototype
