EST1.1: Gain a better understanding of current estuary habitat conditions
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Note: “ecologically important areas” is a generic term that, once defined, can support restoration or protection prioritization. It may include salmon habitat.
Desired Outcome - Based on enhanced understanding of estuarine processes and function, restoration efforts are directed to areas that will have the most ecological benefit.
Policy Needs - N/A
Example Actions - N/A
- Conduct delta system scale analyses of habitat function and resilience.
- Describe who the intended users of the final product will be and how they will engage in the project.
- Describe the datasets, protocols, and analyses that will be used.
- Describe how this research will improve restoration planning and site design.
- If new sampling/surveys are proposed, describe how new data collection will build upon and enhance existing data and will be used to improve decision-making.
- Consider applying ESRP Learning Program RFP guidance and criteria in developing your project and metrics of success.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
