MAIA Research Programs

In addition to improving the environmental assessment process, MAIA will strengthen the scientific basis of EMAP through integrated, place-based research that addresses scientific issues raised by the National Research Council (NRC) and other peer reviews. When fully developed, MAIA will provide a suite of environmental assessment tools to integrate land cover information, other measures of human-caused environmental stress, and the biological assessment of multiple resource categories:
MAIA will address comparative risk assessment goals by focusing on the following basic questions:
  • Is there a problem?
  • Where is the problem?
  • What is the cause of the problem?
  • Are things changing?
  • What does it mean to a community?
  • What can we do about it?
