Many individuals provided data for this database; we would particularly like to thank Les Watling, Stephen Cairns, John Reed, and Sandra Brooke for their contributions. The text, user interface, and metadata benefited from helpful reviews by VeeAnn Cross, Thomas Hourigan, Valerie Paskevich, Laura Robinson, David Twichell, and Page Valentine. We also thank Jennifer Martin for her capable assistance with the HTML interface and publication process. This work was partially funded by the NOAA.
