Research and Monitoring
Ongoing research is a core component of the Reserve mission. As one of the 28 reserves in the National Estuarine Research Reserve System, we participate in the NERR System-Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP). This program collects standardized data at specific sites to detect both short-term and long-term trends in water and environmental parameters, nutrients, and biology.
