Abstract:

The Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program EMRRP was initiated in 1997 as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers response to a national shift in environmental research and development. The program provides state-of-the-science methods and procedures to predict and analyze environmental impacts of Corps projects and activities with application toward ecosystem management and restoration. EMRRP research is developing both short- and long-range solutions to problems in several Corps mission areas the Environment, Navigation, Recreation, Regulatory, Support for Others, and Water Supply, and addresses the requirements of more than 20 Legislative Acts, including the National Environmental Policy Act. The programs stand-alone yet interrelated work units focus on research technology areas designed to develop capabilities to predict ecosystem impacts, develop ecosystem management and decision support systems, develop rapid quantification and assessment methods, investigate basic ecosystem processes, and restore habitat for species of concern to Corps natural resource managers.
