||As a part of the National Coastal Assessment, the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) initiated a five-year Western Coastal component in 1999. The objectives of the program were: to assess the condition of estuarine resources of Washington, Oregon and California based on a range of indicators of environmental quality using an integrated survey design; to establish a baseline for evaluating how the conditions of the estuarine resources of these states change with time; to develop and validate improved methods for use in future coastal monitoring and assessment efforts in the western coastal states; and to transfer the technical approaches and methods for designing, conducting and analyzing data from probability based environmental assessments to the states and tribes.
||Prepared in cooperation with National Health and Environmental Effects Research Lab., Gulf Breeze, LA. Gulf Ecology Div. Sponsored by Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC. Office of Research and Development.
