Aquatic Monitoring - Eastern (AM)
Objectives are to introduce the conceptual framework, legal policies,
and field techniques needed to develop an effective aquatic resource
monitoring program. Elemental knowledge of aquatic ecology, basic
life histories of aquatic biota, fluvial geomorphology, hydrology,
water chemistry, and sampling design/statistical considerations
needed specifically for monitoring will be presented. Part of
time devoted to field demonstration of data collection techniques
and relevant equipment. Case studies which illustrate successful
applications of monitoring information will be presented, covering
such issues as grazing, timber harvest/roading, and chemical pollution,
aquatic TES species population viability, and land use effects
on wetlands and lakes. Participants will design an aquatic monitoring
program for actual use on their field units.

Comparison of the two "Aquatic Monitoring" workshops:
Aquatic Monitoring - Eastern and Aquatic
Ecosystem Monitoring & Evaluation (NR16 - R6
Aquatic Ecosystems Technical Training Series) cover similar
topics but differ in perspective. Aquatic Monitoring-Eastern focuses
on techniques and topics relevant to the eastern United States.
NR16 focuses on techniques and topics relevant to the western
United States. See the respective web pages or vendors for detailed
information. NR16 is scheduled annually at a predetermined location.
AM-Eastern is "on demand": you contact Brett Roper to
set up a workshop in your area. It is easy to set up a workshop
with Brett. Give us a call and we will help you.
