Long-term monitoring data can be a tremendous asset for coastal research and management, but processing and analyzing the data and extracting key findings can be challenging.
The National Estuarine Research ReserveSystem's System-wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) has been collecting physical and biological data at estuaries across the country for many years. This webinar will feature two projects that have been analyzing these monitoring data from multiple sites to understand better trends in marsh surface elevation and vegetation in relation to sea levels. Project leads will share a few examples of their findings that can inform marsh resilience efforts, and provide tips for others considering SWMP synthesis projects.
The webinar will wrap up with a discussion of opportunities and strategies for using SWMP data for future research and management applications.
