Information on important ecosystem components, including water quality, fish, vegetation, and macroinvertebrates are obtained annually using standardized procedures. Other data such as land cover/land use and bathymetry are gathered and analyzed periodically. Monitoring activities...
This report summarizes monitoring activities of the Long Term Resources Monitoring Program (LTRMP) during 2002 and highlights selected results and accomplishments pertaining to hydrology, sedimentation, bathymetry, land cover/land use, water quality, fish, vegetation, and macroinvertebrates.�
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
