Background: The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), Ecosystem Management Project (SEMP), Ecosystem Characterization and Monitoring Initiative (ECMI), http://www.denix.osd.mil/denix/Public/Library/SEMP/semp.html, is a long-term, multiagency monitoring initiative at Fort Benning, GA, to characterize the environment in and around Fort Benning and provide long-term databases documenting the environment (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 ten meteorological stations, four surface water stations, and four 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.
