/ NRCS Special Emphasis Watershed Studies
Ten Special Emphasis Watershed studies managed by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), support the National Assessment component of the Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP). They complement the CEAP National Assessment with in-depth watershed-level studies that address specific resource concerns such as manure management on animal feeding operations, water use on irrigated cropland, drainage management, wildlife habitat and riparian restoration.
The National Agricultural Library maintains a dynamic bibliography cataloging all NRCS watershed studies from 2003 to the present.
The Current Research Information System (CRIS) is USDA's documentation and reporting system for ongoing and recently completed research and education projects.
