This chapter forms part of a larger report summarizing recommendations for monitoring coastal wetlands of the Great Lakes.
The report is based on data and experience gained through the GLNPO-funded Great Lakes Coastal Wetland Consortium (GLCWC) and the EPA-STAR funded Great Lakes Ecological Indicators Project (GLEI). EPA-MED author Trebitz and other MED personnel were collaborators on the GLEI project. The report is intended to inform ongoing and future assessment, monitoring, and management programs in the Great Lakes basin, and to that end provides recommendations on sampling design, field and laboratory protocols, indicator computation, data analysis and management, etc. The landscape chapter includes sections discussing potential landscape indicators and metrics, available landscape (GIS) data, and recent developments in remote sensing methodology, and a section recommending a plan for future GIS-based mapping and monitoring of wetlands in the Great Lakes basin.
