Research Project: CEAP - WETLANDS MID-ATLANTIC REGIONAL STUDY (2011/2012)

Location: Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-13610-028-17-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2010
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
Provide science-based data, results and information to routinely inform conservation decisions affecting wetland ecosystems and the services they provide. Develop a broad collaborative foundation that facilitates the production and delivery of scientific data, results, and information.

Approach:
Conduct collaborative regional investigations to: quantify wetland ecosystem services across an alteration gradient in agricultural landscapes; interpret effects of conservation practices and programs, and the effectiveness (i.e., the type, location, land treatment, design, and/or management) of conservation practices on ecosystem services; and identify multiple-scale factors that influence the capacity for a wetland to provide an ecosystem service within a range of estimates.
