As a member of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) team, I provide technical expertise on the experimental design and implementation of the aquatic vegetation monitoring in the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). My activities include statistical analyses of the monitoring data and computer modeling to reveal the health status and the driving functions of the UMRS.
