Port Valdez Environmental Studies Program
The Port Valdez Environmental Studies Program (PVESP) is a long-term environmental study currently focused on monitoring of sediments adjacent to the Valdez marine oil terminal. The long-term effort begun in 1968 with initial surveys and the work in 1971 was the first multi-disciplinary environmental study in Alaska. The study provides a long-term record of biological and chemical characteristics of sediments throughout the fjord but also includes extensive oceanographic and biological investigations of the environment.
