Description

Event Postponed until September 26th!

The Mid-Atlantic Tidal Rapid Assessment Method (MidTRAM) is a rapid protocol used for assessing the condition of freshwater, brackish and saltwater tidal wetlands in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. This single day workshop will focus on the application of this method in the field, along with its potential uses. Be prepared for classroom and field portions. Once you have completed this training you will be able to:
  1. Understand the intended uses for this assessment method
  2. Receive a complete list of the simple field and office equipment required to perform this method
  3. Review the freshwater tidal assessment method updates
  4. Perform the field components of the MidTRAM method

Who Should Attend:
Federal or state employees, engineers, or researchers from Delaware, Maryland or Virginia interested in the health of tidal wetlands

About Our Program:
DNREC's Wetland Monitoring & Assessment Program (WMAP), in conjunction with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, developed the MidTRAM method in 2006. WMAP has since used this method to assess Delaware's wetlands and report on overall condition by watershed. For more information about the program and the assessment method please visit de.gov/wmap.
