Description: The Collaborative Environmental Monitoring and Research Initiative (CEMRI) was established recently to test strategies for multi-agency collaboration in environmental monitoring (Murdoch and Jenkins 2002). Participating agencies include the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), USDA Forest Service, National Park Service, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. CEMRI’s objective is to test potential collaborative strategies among the agencies that can be applied throughout the United States. The scientific rationale for this initiative is the realization that, to be effective, ecosystem management, environmental assessment, and environmental health monitoring must take into account the mosaic of complex relationships among air, land, water, living resources, and human activities. The often narrowly targeted monitoring programs of individual agencies are poorly suited to capture and understand such complex relationships. By coordinating existing monitoring efforts under CEMRI, the programs of individual agencies can continue to satisfy their specific agency missions while also contributing to a national multiscale, multiresource tracking system and do so in a relatively economical fashion. The Delaware River Basin was chosen as the pilot region for testing the concepts embodied in CEMRI.
