This document outlines Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program's (EMAP's) strategy for indicator development. This strategy presents general approaches, criteria, and procedures for selecting and evaluating indicators in the context of a long-term monitoring program. EMAP's indicator development is a multiphase process to identify and evaluate indicators that can estimate the condition of ecological resources defined over large geographic areas using synoptic survey monitoring methods. The procedures described in this document outline this process from the identification of potentially useful indicators (research indicators) through the adoption of a set of core indicators for use in a national monitoring program. This strategy is intended to promote a consistent approach to indicator development across ecological resources and to provide a basis for internal and external review of EMAP indicators. The implementation of the strategy and refinement of the process will continue throughout the existence of EMAP.
