Emergent Vegetation: NERR
SWMP Tier 2 Salt Marsh Monitoring in the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve.
However, unpublished records show that a single 96-mm individual was previously collected at TE in 1990 under the NERR
fish monitoring program (Table 1).
The CDMO serves as the principal technical support for NERRS SWMP.
(2001) analyzed water quality data collected at 44 NERRS sampling sites nationwide, including those of the JCNERR.
This two-year study being led by the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), which is managed by DEM, will evaluate thin layer sediment placement as an adaptation strategy to improve marsh resilience against rising sea levels.
With this grant, researchers at the Narragansett Bay NERR on Prudence Island will evaluate how marshes respond to the addition of various amounts of sediment at different marsh elevations and compare these results to similar work being done by project partners across the country.
JGOFS (core data sets only) and the NERRS National Monitoring Program.
Long-term data have been collected in European countries for much longer than elsewhere, but the more recent efforts have, with a few notable exceptions, been better organized conceptually and managerially [e.g., LTER (1993), and LMER (Hayden et al., 1991); EPA (1994a, b); NERRS (1992; Crosby and Beck, 1995)!.
The National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) system, established under the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) of 1972, is a partnership between the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the states that reside along coast lines (NOAA 2006).
There are three distinct bayous sampled in Grand Bay NERR. Bayou Casotte is located in the vicinity of the Chevron Oil Refinery and is categorized as an industrial area.
Grand Bay NERR
was established in 1999 to preserve and protect one of the largest remaining expanses of estuarine environment along the Mississippi coast.
The Gulf National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERR
) regional partnership is well positioned to address coastal resource management issues that have impacts on a regional level through locally based training and technical assistance, said Shelton.
