Assessment Methods for Wetlands

There have been many different types of wetland assessments developed in the past decade, including one specifically developed for the State of Oregon. Information on this method can be found at the Department of State Lands Wetlands Program website, their Technical Resources website, and under this portal's Maps menu.

Other types of wetland assessments are discussed by the United States Geologic Service (USGS) National Water Summary on Wetland Resources website, The Association of State Wetland Managers Federal Wetland Programs website, The Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) Wetland Assessment website, and the Environmental Protection Agency Wetland Bioassessment Glossary website.
