Alternative Futures Analysis of Farmington Bay Wetlands in the Great Salt Lake EcosystemWebsite or Online Data - 2010
"This research project was conducted to develop a way of forecasting and quantifying the cumulative effect of management practices on the future management of wetland ecosystem services. The study is focused on wetland support for biodiversity, and specifically examined management risks to the avian habitat. Retention, recovery, and removal of excess nutrients by the wetland resource were also analyzed. No specific analysis was conducted to determine the effects of nutrient loads on the ecological condition of receiving wetlands. It was beyond the scope of the project. Future efforts to determine the effects of nutrient loads on the ecological condition of receiving wetlands will likely involve the systematic monitoring and assessment of wetlands in the project area over time. Information about the development and deployment of a wetland-monitoring program for the Great Salt Lake can be found on the Utah Department of Environmental Quality website."
