Water: Monitoring & Assessment

Volunteer Wetland-Monitoring:

a Preliminary Compendium of Materials

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The following list of publications and contacts is in the development stage; it is not comprehensive. The EPA Wetlands Division offers this as an interim guide to resources; at a later date we will produce a more complete compendium of resources including an annotated bibliography. The references have been placed in categories that indicatethe main approach of each publication. Some publications are listed in more than one of these categories. As much information as possible about how to obtain each publication is included, but this information is not yet entirely systematic or complete.
