NCSU Launches Aquatic Resources Mapping Forum!

"I want to map stormwater retention ponds for my municipality, how should I mount my Lowrance unit?" "Can you estimate aquatic plant biomass from BioBase outputs? If so, how?"  Questions like these from a growing global BioBase user base can now be answered by other experienced colleagues.  North Carolina State University's Aquatic Weed Science Program has recently launched an Aquatic Resource Mapping Forum designed to support a user community of broad interests related to mapping Aquatic Habitats.  "...this forum is designed to foster a community of individuals who share a common interest (Aquatic Mapping and Monitoring) and to provide a forum for that community to discuss various aspects of the science and ask for help when needed," noted Dr. Brett Hartis, NCSU Aquatic Extension and Research Associate and moderator of the forum.  We strongly encourage anyone with an interest in aquatic mapping to sign up for the forum and subscribe to email alerts for Topics that interest you.* BioBase experts from Navico will weigh in occasionally with posts that will support and benefit the broad community of users.
