Information Management

EMAP's Information Management component develops the information management infrastructure that enables EMAP to achieve its program objectives. Activities are guided by the EMAP Information Management Working Group, chaired by the Atlantic Ecology Division of the National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory, Office of Research and Development, U. S. Environmental Protection Agency. Guidelines, procedures, and the EMAP Information Management Plan: 1998-2001 can be found on the EMAP Information Management Documents page.
