Lower Missouri River Ecosystem Initiative

Project Description
The Lower Misouri River Ecosystem Initiative (LMREI) began in 1994 at
the U.S. Geological Survey Columbia Environmental Research
Center in Columbia, Missouri. The goal of the LMREI was to
partner with others to facilitate the transfer of Missouri River
scientific data and other information needed by river management
agencies and local, state, and federal decision makers.

Objectives:

1. Develope partnerships to facilitate communication and
cooperation among agencies and the public.

2. Create an information clearinghouse to serve as an access
point for data and information.

3. House a geographic information system (GIS) lab to transform
data into maps for landscape-scale resource analysis.

4. Assist in river monitoring and research projects.
