Associated / Linked Studies: CERP/RECOVER Restoration Technology Transfer: USGS-CERP Liaison with SFWMD (Torres, Best)

Overview & Objective: CERP/RECOVER Restoration Technology Transfer and USGS-CERP Liaison with USACE includes the following activities:

  • Task 1 - Support of CERP/RECOVER; A. USGS participation in CERP PDT and RECOVER meetings; and B. Work with federal, state, and other restoration partners to ensure technology transfer and science synthesis.
  • Task 2 - Assist with GE PES coordination.
  • Task 3 - USGS Liaison with USACE

Status: Ongoing

Recent & Planned Products:

Task 1

  1. Meeting notes, action items, and follow up emails for project progress reviews.
  2. Workshop and conference contracts and syntheses.
  3. Status reports for tracked GE PES projects.

Task 2

  1. Meeting notes, action items, and follow up emails for project progress reviews.
  2. Workshop and conference contracts and syntheses.
  3. Status reports for tracked GE PES projects.

Task 3

  1. In FY06, seeks to improve funding, invoicing and product delivery issues for USGS WO/IAs with USACE by implementing new protocols drafted last FY.
  2. Find new ways and opportunities to expand program development options for USACE funding to USGS scientists

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.
