Estuary Status and Trends

What does biological integrity look like in the Mobile Bay estuary? What monitoring and research is needed to track environmental conditions through time? How do we reduce stressors and communicate resultant biological changes? One of the charges of the Science Advisory Committee (SAC) is to integrate science into the development of an environmental monitoring program to track conditions throughout the Mobile Bay estuary.

To construct such a robust monitoring program, the SAC is charged with developing recommendations for what research is needed to better understand our estuarine system; identifying what data gaps exist in determining baseline conditions and developing the research projects for better understanding the most stressed habitats/watersheds; determining what other needs exist in relation to the six things citizens value most; and developing decision-support tools to facilitate citizen access to these data sets.
