WETLANDS WORKAT SFEI


Basic Conceptual Model

e.g., contaminants,

suspended sediment, freshwater

e.g., juvenile fish, organic carbon, contaminants, detritus

Atmosphere

Watersheds

Wetlands

Ocean

Bays

e.g., salt,

anadromous fishes,

riparian birds

e.g., salt,

intertidal fishes,

suspended sediment


Working Uphill

Bay

Tidal Wetlands

Non-Tidal Wetlands

Focus on Tidal Wetlands

Basic WRMP Structure

SFEI forms and administers and partners with technical teams to develop indicators, collect data, and report understanding.

Physical Process, Bio-Geo Chemistry, Vegetation, Invertebrates, Fish, Amphibians and Reptiles, Mammals, Birds, Landscape Ecology, Information Technology

University-basedResearch Partners

Multi-disciplinary research teams are developing new indicators and analytical methods to assess wetland form, processes, and ecosystem functions that could be used in the WRMP to monitor status and trends and wetland project performance.

New EcoAtlas Tools


Some New Proposals

  • Map Shellmounds to help recover Tradition Ecological Knowledge

  • Recover historical topographic maps as templates for wetland restoration

  • Move WRMP to Level 3 of the EPA wetland monitoring approach

  • Support the Subtidal Goals Project
