Integration of Ecological and Socioeconomic Indicators for Estuaries and Watersheds of the Atlantic Slope

Framework Type: 

Publication Year: 

The overall goal of the ASC is to develop and test a set of indicators in coastal systems that are ecologically appropriate, economically reasonable, and relevant to society. This suite of indicators will produce integrated assessments of the condition, health and sustainability of aquatic ecosystems. These indicators will be developed using ecological and socioeconomic information compiled at the scale of estuarine segments and small watersheds, with clear connections to smaller and larger scales.
