Develop GIS suitability maps based on soils, topography and climate. Evaluate currently successful operations in terms of wetland impacts. Demonstrate a pond model for use in locating and constructing ponds to protect wetlands and enhance biodiversity. Extrapolate model findings to other sites having similar physical suitability based on runoff capture, water quality, as well as economic and social potential.
