TETHYS   The marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) Environmental Impacts Knowledge Management System

Tethys is a database and knowledge management system that provides access to information and research pertaining to the potential environmental effects of marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) and offshore wind development. Tethys is being developed by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to support the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wind and Water Power Program. Tethys also hosts data from Annex IV.

Annex IV is a collaborative project among member nations of the IEA Ocean Energy Systems-Implementing Agreement (OES-IA) to examine environmental effects of ocean energy devices and projects. Tethys is hosting the data and documents resulting from this collaboration.
