Bateria protocols cover
Bacteria sampling and data analysis protocol addendum for Mid-Atlantic tidal tributary indicators.
Bacteria sampling and data analysis protocol
This document develops a clear and consistent protocol for the identification, collection, and analysis of the indicator of bacteria. Specifically, this document serves as an addendum to the Sampling and data analysis protocols for Mid-Atlantic tidal tributary indicators which provides guidelines for the successful production of tidal ecosystem health report cards. The bacteria protocol was written and reviewed by the MTAC group and Ecocheck. This document is intended for use in tidal areas only, as the ecosystem health indicator and thresholds discussed are pertinent only to tidal ecosystems.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
