Assist NRCS in providing science-based data, results, and information to routinely inform conservation decisions affecting wetland ecosystems and the services they provide. Assist NRCS in developing a broad collaborative foundation that facilitates the production and delivery of scientific data, results, and information.
The funds used for in-house efforts will focus on assessments of denitrification in the wetland sites. The denitrificatin enzme assays will be on the approximately 50 evaluation sites. Greenhouse gas chamber analyses will be done on a select number of sites via a static chamber and a photoacoustic analyzer. The Mitchell Ecology effort will be done via an SCA focused on amphibian evaluations, considering potential connections with the conditions for and the level of denitrification.
