Coastwide Reference Monitoring System

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Developed from the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA), the Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS) will monitor coastal wetlands from a coastwide or basinwide approach.  Where CWPPRA is a more project-specific evaluation, the CRMS method is broad in scope to address wetland assessment on a much larger scale. The National Wetlands Research Center (NWRC) will perform land-water classification on 391 1-km sites across Louisiana’s coastline.  These 391 sites have had land-water classification for 2005, 2008, and 2012 and will be compared to assess trends and potential restoration activities.
