This year, Oregon will be updating the Rocky Shores chapter of the Territorial Sea Plan and we need your help – more on this process here. Oregon’s rocky intertidal areas have dramatic species diversity and are sentinel sites for research on the latest ocean issues like sea star wasting and acidification. On Ma the Oregon Coastal Management Program (OCMP) issued a data request to help with the update of the Oregon Territorial Sea Plan (TSP) Rocky Shores Management Strategy. Aware of the upcoming data call and in consultation program staff, a research effort into the vulnerability of intertidal rocky habitats to sea level rise (SLR) using LiDAR topobathymetric data began in December.
The beauty and majesty of Oregon’s rocky shores draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to the coast each year. The region’s iconic tide pools, headland cliffs, offshore rocks and islands, and submerged reefs are awe-inspiring, but beyond the wonder lie diverse and complex marine habitats that provide essential ecological services for seabirds, marine mammals, seaweeds, invertebrates, and fish. Rocky shore plants & algae. Seaweeds can make tidepooling difficult or dangerous because they are often slippery. However seaweeds are remarkably adapted because they can dry out at low tide and rehydrate at high tide a couple of times each day! When out in the intertidal be sure to notice the facinating zonation created by these algae and plants.

Bathymetry (Figure 2) and the affecting conditions such as light, water turbulence, and temperature are responsible for the distribution of the benthic animals and plants into horizons or l organisms of rocky shores are epibenthic animals that are fixed.
Rocky shores are home to some of the most biologically diverse and productive communities throughout the world. These ecosystems lie at the interface between the land and the sea, exposing organisms here to alternating terrestrial and marine habitats in rhythm with the tidal cycle.
Rocky shores are found where the sea meets the land. They support a diverse mix of plants and animals which have adapted to survive this habitat's unique conditions. Along the exposed coast of Queensland, constant wave action and the rise and fall of tides can make these shores tough places to live.
