Abstract: The Wetlands Workshop was attended by 74 US Army Corps of Engineers (US ACE) representatives. The purpose of the workshop was to identify needs and concerns related to US ACE Division and District wetlands activities. Prior to the workshop, a questionnaire was sent to all USACE offices asking for field input on wetlands; results were compiled and made available to workshop participants (Appendixes A and B). Workshop information was provided informally to Headquarters, USACE, for use in developing wetlands guidance and direction of the current USACE Wetlands Research Program, which is funded at $22 million through FY 93. After the opening plenary session, workshop participants were assigned to one of six technical breakout sessions; where they listed all items of concern in their topic area, voted on each item, and ranked each as a high, medium, or low priority. Each group also summarized its findings for presentation in the final plenary session. These findings have been used to prepare the research program development report. This miscellaneous paper was written on the basis of notes and tapes from the workshop, and on the developments leading to the current research program. Copies of these workshop proceedings were provided informally to all workshop participants, and their reviews were incorportated into the final proceedings document. Following the workshop, the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, with the assistance of an appointed 14-member Field Review Group made up of USACE field office representatives and 7 Technical Monitors from Headquarters, USACE, developed the research program framework that became the USACE expanded Wetlands Research Program.
