Environmental Monitoring Workshop Announced



Thursday, October 19th, 2017
8:00AM-3:30PM, RIEMC meeting 3:30-4:30PM
Coastal Institute Auditorium, Narragansett Bay Campus

Join us for a one-day workshop to discuss current monitoring efforts in Narragansett Bay, prioritize gaps that need to be filled to achieve comprehensive monitoring, and identify opportunities for new data collection or novel synthesis approaches.

We invite participants who currently conduct monitoring in Narragansett Bay or along its coasts to briefly present on their efforts. More details are provided in the RSVP survey and Nicole Rohr will follow up with those who indicate they are interested in presenting.

The workshop will be followed by a RI Environmental Monitoring Collaborative meeting, which is open to the public.

Information including agenda and relevant background materials will be posted here as they become available.
