National Coastal Assessment and Monitoring Program (EMAP) Continuing Assessment of Hawaii’s Estuaries and Coastal Waters: Phase II
Hawaii Department of Health
12/23/05 – 04/22/07
We assisted the state in preparing and developing phase 2 of the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP), which included continuation of an earlier assessment of the physical, biological, and chemical condition of Hawaii’s estuaries and nearshore coastal waters using standardized methods and a suite of environmental indicators. We ranked the relative importance of various stressors on the affected resources, and worked to build partnerships among implementing agencies for more effective future monitoring and assessments.
