Better Monitoring through Uncertainty Analysis: Optimize allocation of effort, save time and money

Feedback form is now closed.
Periodic evaluation of monitoring programs is important to accommodate changing objectives, technological advances, and the accumulation of information over time. Uncertainty analysis can provide a basis for making difficult decisions about reducing or redirecting sampling effort, as will be illustrated in case studies involving mercury contamination in fish and loons, measurement uncertainty in forest inventory (FIA), and the number and placement of precipitation gauges at Hubbard Brook. Please come to learn about and discuss what analyses to use in which circumstances and how they might be applied at your site.
