|Research at GTM Research Reserve
One of the primary objectives of GTM Research Reserve is to promote research and monitoring within its boundaries and
adjacent watershed by facilitating and/or partnering with others. The benefits of encouraging outside investigations
include high quality research, a broad range of expertise, interdisciplinary approaches, broader participation and a
wide range of funding sources that may otherwise be unavailable through NOAA or DEP. Research and monitoring programs
in the region are carried out by a number of universities, local, state and federal agencies and private institutions.
- Jacksonville University
- The University of North Florida
- The University of Florida
- St. Johns River Water Management District
Habitat trays help monitor populations of exotic crabs.
GTM Research Reserve participates in a variety of monitoring
programs, including sea turtle
monitoring and water quality
monitoring, to identify management needs and
assess the effectiveness of current management strategies.
- Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) Program
CICEET is a research funding partnership of NOAA and the
University of New Hampshire established to transform the
best available science into practical, innovative tools that
coastal managers need to address their challenges.
- Other Research Activities
