Given this overall goal, the specific objectives for this project were to:
1) create a scalable system of fine-resolution, hierarchically nested watersheds across the Lake Superior basin;
2) quantify the natural environmental and human disturbance gradients for fine-scale watersheds;
3) use these gradients to provide supporting data for intra- and cross-agency monitoring and sampling designs;
4) identify reference (least impacted) and degraded watersheds and coastal regions within the Lake Superior basin;
5) develop tools that allow users to scale data appropriate to their sample domain and response variables;
6) disseminate project outputs via an updated LSDSS website.
