NEARC Fall 2015 has ended

Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer. 

MY SCHEDULE FEATURE: It is not required of you to create a Sched.org account to use this site but if you do so, you’ll be able to use the "My Schedule" feature which allows you to create your own schedule for the conference. Click the "Sign Up" button in the top right corner of this page to create a Sched.org account.

Detailed salt marsh maps are an important component of the National Estuarine Research Reserves’ management plans. Salt marshes perform many ecological functions and provide a suite of ecosystem services. The NERRs and other natural resource management entities are concerned about trends in salt marsh loss and change. The effort presented here will describe techniques NOAA and our partners are employing to develop detailed maps for these environments using high-resolution imagery and lidar and various data derivatives in a data fusion and object segmentation approach.
