Washington State Methods for Assessing Wetland Functions

Volume II: Depressional Wetlands in the Columbia Basin of Eastern Washington

This document is the second volume in a series describing methods for assessing wetland functions in Washington. The volume is divided into two parts. The first part contains background information and three assessment methods, one each for three types of depressional wetlands occurring in the Columbia Basin. The second part contains procedures and field forms for collecting and recording the data needed to apply the methods.

In addition, there are three Excel spreadsheets, one for each wetland type, that can be used to calculate the index of performance for each function. Instructions for using the spreadsheets are found in the "Read Me" file.
