Briefing Papers

This website, along with handouts and exhibits in the park, are great sources of information about the many features of Pinnacles.

The following papers, however, are more technical and scientific in nature. These papers are often the next step in understanding complex resources and the steps that we take to manage them.

Many of the papers are in conjunction with universities, the Pacific Coast Science and Learning Center, or the San Francisco Bay Area Network, Inventory and Monitoring Program.
