EAR - Ecosystem Assessment & Reporting Tool

By integrating biodiversity, socioeconomic and protected area datasets, the Ecosystem Assessment and Reporting Tool provides a simple, but powerful interface designed to answer questions such as “Which ecosystems are least protected?” “Of these ecosystems, where and how do we need to improve management?” and “Where are the opportunities to most efficiently reduce threats to these ecosystems?” The EAR tool has been designed around The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) approach for calculating “Effective Conservation” (Higgins et al, 2007).

Eeelgrass Restoration Site Selection Model

With a grant from CICEET, researchers from the University of New Hampshire have developed the Eelgrass Restoration Site Selection Model. This GIS spatial model allows coastal managers to rank the potential of different sites within an estuary for eelgrass restoration, thereby maximizing the impact of their financial and operational resources.
