The Long Term Resource Monitoring conducts monitoring and research to meet the needs of our partners. The additional projects range from study planning to data collection. Some of this work has been published, but many products are in the form of contract reports to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. For those projects that do not have a product that can be freely distirbuted, we provide links to the project proposals. More information can be obtained by contacting the lead listed for each component, or the principal investigator listed in the proposal.
