Description: The following objectives summarize the work for one (1) unique, stand-alone project. Over the life of the cooperative agreement (2 years), it is anticipated that 2 projects would be completed. Objective 1: Develop study protocols. Investigator will collaborate with ERDC researchers to develop field protocols for sampling multiple SSW sites that allow for the determination of efficacy for the operational chemical management of SSW. Objective 2: Sample processing and data analysis. Collect field data on chemical control efficacy within managed vs non-managed SSW sites. These data should include but are not limited to: Core samples to assess SSW bulbil production within the sediment, percent change in plant occurrence following chemical management, and comparison of these data between managed vs. non-managed sites. All data shall be incorporated in a report using peer-review publication format. Status and draft reports shall be submitted for ERDC review on a quarterly basis.
