Description

Whether initiating a community-based monitoring program or working with a continuing program, Alaska communities, scientists, engineers, and agencies will find this guide indispensable for implementing best practices. To make a CBM program work, the need for monitoring and the intended use of the data must be identified, benefits for the community should be clearly stated, and a scientist, agency, or organization must be committed to manage the program, to be responsive to community needs, and to meet the scientific needs of the data users. The emphasis is on collecting scientifically defensible data via systematic observations, and on enjoying the group effort!
