The Program Guide for the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) describes an interagency, interdisciplinary program that will contribute to decisions on environmental protection and management by integrating research, monitoring, and assessment. EMAP's strategies are based on social values and policy-relevant questions as well as rigorous science. EMAP will estimate the current status, trends, and changes in indicators of the condition of the Nation's ecological resources at regional scales of resolution with known confidence. EMAP will estimate the geographic coverage and extent of the Nation's ecological resources with known confidence. EMAP seeks to understand associations between selected indicators of natural or human-induced stresses and ecological condition. EMAP will provide annual statistical summaries and periodic assessments of the Nation's ecological resources.
