Project Description

The Louisiana’s Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS) provides valuable data for the nearshore habitats and resources targeted for Natural Resources Damage Assessment restoration, including coastal wetlands and habitats on Federally Managed Lands, and will help address restoration priorities described in the Programmatic Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan and Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PDARP/PEIS). This Monitoring and Adaptive Management (MAM) activity is intended to support evaluation of regional restoration outcomes within the Louisiana Restoration Area; perform data aggregation and data management; inform restoration decision-making; and perform monitoring to inform the design, implementation and adaptive management of existing and future restoration projects.
