Develop protocols and implement long-term monitoring sites across Great Plains basins.
Multidisciplinary framework for monitoring hydrology, water quality, geomorphology, biology, and connectivity to support long-term science needs in Great Plains basins. Benefits of standardized and comprehensive sampling would accrue across scales (e.g. regional flow-ecology; e-flow standards); across protection/restoration efforts (large scale invasive control; flow manipulation/restoration) and adaptive management strategies (where do you get most return). Data needed for science gaps, listing and delisting processes, etc.
