The methods described in this manual reflect standard procedures developed by EMAP-Estuaries during 10 years of coastal monitoring activities conducted in all coastal regions of the contiguous U.S. This manual reflects a national focus. The overall objective is to put a practical field methods guide into the hands of the participating field teams that allows a reasonable degree of flexibility to individual states, while at the same time, provides adequate structure to ensure the uniform collection of comparable field data on a national basis.
