The Global Change
Monitoring Portal (GCMP) is a recently released tool designed to support the
efforts of multiple federal, state, and other organizations by providing a
centralized, comprehensive catalog of information about monitoring networks
associated with aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems that can be used to assess
the potential effects of climate change in the southeastern United States. Monitoring programs are classified according to the types of observations made, such as media and parameter category, and monitoring sites are mapped into geographic categories such as Ecoregion and Landscape Conservation Cooperative, so that the database can be searched and displayed by measurement and/or geographic criteria. This webinar will introduce some of the features of the Global Change Monitoring Portal, currently in the first phase of development. Register here.
