Research at GTM Research Reserve Quick Topics

One of the primary objectives of GTM Research Reserve is to promote research and monitoring within its boundaries and adjacent watershed by facilitating and/or partnering with others. The benefits of encouraging outside investigations include high quality research, a broad range of expertise, interdisciplinary approaches, broader participation and a wide range of funding sources that may otherwise be unavailable through NOAA or DEP. Research and monitoring programs in the region are carried out by a number of universities, local, state and federal agencies and private institutions.

Partner Agencies

  • Jacksonville University
  • The University of North Florida
  • The University of Florida
  • St. Johns River Water Management District

  • Monitoring
    GTM Research Reserve participates in a variety of monitoring programs, including sea turtle monitoring and water quality monitoring,  to identify management needs and assess the effectiveness of current management strategies.
     
  • The NERR Graduate Fellowship Program
    This program provides graduate students with an opportunity to conduct research that focuses on enhancing coastal zone management. The student gains beneficial experience and the reserve gains valuable research. More information on the fellowship program can be found at www.nerrs.noaa.gov/fellowship/welcome.html.
     
  • Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) Program
    CICEET is a research funding partnership of NOAA and the University of New Hampshire established to transform the best available science into practical, innovative tools that coastal managers need to address their challenges.
     
  • Other Research Activities
    GTM Research Reserve sponsors or supports other research activities.
