Abstract:
The Mid-Atlantic Integrated Assessment (MAIA) is a research, monitoring, and assessment initiative. Its main goal is to develop high-quality scientific information on the condition of the natural resources of the Mid-Atlantic region of the eastern United States, including the watersheds of the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays, Albemarle-Pamlico Sound, and the Delmarva Coastal Bays. Scientific activities conducted in the MAIA region focus on assessment issues of critical importance to resource managers and environmental decision-makers. In its three years, MAIA has helped forge alliances between federal and state agencies, producing an array of reports on estuaries, ground water, streams, land use, landscape attributes, and other related topics. Various databases are available for review: Aerometric Information Retrieval System - Air Quality Subsystem (AIRS-AQS) (.html format), Aerometric Information Retrieval System - AIRS Facility Subsystem (AIRS-AFS) (.html format), Emissions Tracking Subsystem (ETS) - Acid Rain Program (.html format), Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS)(.html format), STORET (.html format), Permit Compliance System (PCS) (.html format), National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) Database (.html format), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Information System (CERCLIS) (.html format), Resource Conservation and Recovery Information System (RCRIS) (.html format), Compliance Subsystem of RCRIS (.html format), Biennial Reporting System (BRS) (.html format), and Toxics Release Inventory (.html format). EMAP and USGS data is also available at "http://www.epa.gov/maia/". Maps are available at "http://www.epa.gov/maia/html/maps.html". Information was obtained from "http://www.epa.gov/maia/".
