Abstract:Beginning in 1995, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), Office of Research and Development has focused much of its ecological research in the Mid;.Atlantic as part of the Mid-Atlantic Integrated Assessment (MAlA). The goal of MAlA is to improve the assessability of scientific information in environmental decision-making. Following the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) whose goal is to guide monitoring that effectively reflects current ecosystem condition and trends, MAlA's second, current, phase of research under the Regional Vulnerability Assessment (ReV A) program is designed to target risk management activities using available data and models. The papers presented here are from a conference held in May 2003 that presented results of research in this second phase of MAlA

The conference was organized into the following topics:

1. Assessing Current Impacts and Vulnerabilities

2. Forecasting Environmental Condition and Vulnerabilities

3. Developing Management Strategies to Optimize the Future, and 4. Assessing and Responding to ennvironmental Vulnerability.
