Abstract: The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), Ecosystem Management Project (SEMP), Ecosystem Characterization and Monitoring Initiative (ECMI) is a long-term, multiagency program at Fort Benning, GA, to characterize the environment in and around Fort Benning and provide long-term databases documenting the environmental (meteorological, hydrological, biological, and geographical) conditions in the ecosystem. In 1999, as part of this program, the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Environmental Laboratory (EL) deployed 10 weather stations, 6 surface water stations, and 4 groundwater stations to support the SERDP, SEMP, ECMI long-term monitoring program. This monitoring program is expected to continue for at least 10 years and be a prototype for long-term monitoring programs at other military installations. The ECMI program includes an adaptation component. To ensure that an optimum monitoring capability is maintained, the current state of environmental instrumentation was evaluated. This technical note presents the results of the evaluation and provides recommendations on the acquisition of new sensors/field station/telemetry to enhance the long-term data collection activities at Ft. Benning.
