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.
