Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project - SNAMP
The Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project has been formed to develop,
implement and test Adaptive Management processes through testing the efficacy
of Strategically Placed Landscape Treatments (SPLATs) across four response
- public participation
- fire/forest health
The SNAMP is made up of researchers from the University of California, the University of Minnesota, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), the California Resources Agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Public. The Science Team is working with the agencies to develop an adaptive management and monitoring program consistent with the Sierra Nevada Forest Plan Amendment. The USFS is responsible for the treatments; and the Science Team researchers will function as an independent third party, and will implement methodologies that focus on the specific response variables to:
- make predictions
- analyze response variables and results
- provide feedback to the USFS
- support public interaction and participation.
This website is dedicated to storing and sharing data between the science teams and with public. A Tutorial of using the website is available.
