Cereghino, P. 2014. A Proposal for Integrated Assessment Units. Prepared by the NOAA Restoration Center for The Puget Sound Partnership.


  • Prepared as an appendix to a final report of the


Our initial project was to integrate the spatial assessments of the Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration Project (The Nearshore Project) and nearshore elements of The Puget Sound Characterization Project (Watershed Characterization). This work led us to question how and why we complete assessments, and how we could improve assessment to tackle more complex ecological problems, adapt our strategies over time, link our strategies to on-the-ground activities, and better represent the Puget Sound landscape in a way that engenders collaboration and stewardship.

Our discussion led to this proposal to define a shared set of assessment units. A shared set of assessment units already exists among our current assessment efforts, and would provide a foundation for management of Puget Sound recovery that increases our ability to integrate between management sectors like salmon recovery, ecosystem process restoration, flood management and water quality.
