Overview & Objective(s): This CERP/RECOVER Restoration Technology Transfer and USGS-CERP Liaison with SFWMD effort entails three tasks as follow:

  • Task 1 - A. USGS participation in CERP PDT and RECOVER meetings; B. Work with DOI, SFWMD and other restoration partners to ensure technology transfer and science synthesis; and C. Provide DOI-specific immediate response for critical information needs.
  • Task 2 - Assist with GE PES coordination.
  • Task 3 - USGS Liaison with SFWMD
Status: Ongoing

Relevance to Greater Everglades Restoration Information Needs/Key Finding:

The USGS continues to provide relevant, objective science and research used for adaptive management and decision making for the restoration of the greater Everglades ecosystem. As budgets shrink and federal and state funding is diverted to other and more current priorities, the USGS needs to consider new technologies, analyses, and efficiencies in conducting our science. These changes, like most changes, are not easy and require direct involvement with other agencies and partners working together to find solutions.
