Aquatic Assessment & Monitoring Team
   

This program consists of a team of scientists that strive to answer some essential questions regarding the natural resource management of aquatic lands in the state of Washington.  To ensure that best available science is included in decisions that might influence the aquatic resources of the state, DNR scientists are involved in research of various aquatic environments.  AAMT scientists are providing the following support:
 
The AAMT seeks to work collaboratively with partner agencies and universities in conducting research and analysis relevant to the management of Washington State's natural resources.  The program will sponsor interagency and cooperative agreements with state entities and academic institutions.  Projects with partners who charge no overhead, facilities, or administrative costs will be given priority.  All other agreements entered into will have overhead rates negotiated on a case-by-case basis up to a maximum cap of 17%.  This is an effort to ensure that state funds are effciently spent.
