Options for Managing Maine’s Near Shore Ecosystems A Series of Four Reports: Interior has created the National Biological Survey, consolidating research in one agency to * Actively involve all individuals and groups with an interest in the area. Maine’s coastal economy is one of the most important and productive sectors of state’s. INTRODUCTION This index describes more than research projects on coastal and estuarine waters of the United States that are in progress (during ) or are planned for the near future by governmental, academic, and private facilities 6 The projects encompass biological, chemical, geological, and physical aspects of the marine environment.   The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) announced it has now restored access to 15, acres of ponds and lakes and miles of river for Maine’s native sea-run fish. These achievements are part of ASF’s Maine Headwaters Project that is focused on restoring critical spawning habitat to sea-run fish in tributaries identified as high priorities. Frederick C. Lincoln, a biologist with the Bureau of Biological Survey (the forerunner of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service), envisioned the use of airplanes for conducting waterfowl surveys. In , he persuaded the Army to take him and a photographer on a test flight over waterfowl wintering on the Potomac River near Washington, DC.

The NLA provides unbiased estimates of the condition of natural and man-made freshwater lakes, ponds and reservoirs greater than 10 acres and at least one meter deep. Using a statistical survey design, 1, lakes were selected at random to represent the condition of the larger population of lakes across the lower 48 states. Hendricks, P.

Early in his career, he spent about 10 years with the U. S. Geological Survey and the Maine Geological Survey, unraveling the history of crustal rocks in western New England and Maine. About , he switched his focus to the environmental aquatic chemistry of watersheds, groundwater and surface water, and paleolimnology.

The topography is further differentiated and dissected by several major river basins draining into the Delaware, Susquehanna-Chesapeake, Ohio-Mississippi, and . A lake is an area filled with water, localized in a basin, surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake. Lakes lie on land and are not part of the ore, they are distinct from lagoons, and are also larger and deeper than ponds, though there are no official or scientific definitions. Lakes can be contrasted with rivers or . More than acres of uplands in and near Acadia National Park will likely be flooded by the ocean if sea level rises 2 feet during this century, leaving 75 percent of the saltwater marshes along this part of central Maine's rugged coast with very little upland area to migrate into, according to a new U.S. Geological Survey study and maps.   For example, a survey by Ephraim Ballard in west-central Maine noted eastern hemlock, American beech, northern white cedar, birches, maples, northern red oak, and American basswood. A survey in the far northern tip of Maine in Aroostook Township in describes a very different forest: lots of fir and spruce, some hardwoods, and balm of.
