2022 Request for Quotes: Within Lake Vulnerability Analysis

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is soliciting quotes for a contractor to conduct a statistical analysis of the abiotic, biotic, and manmade feature data to identify correlations and predict areas within a lake that are potentially more vulnerable to aquatic invasive species (AIS) establishment.

The specific questions TNC would like to have answered as a result of this project are as follows:
1. Using data from lakes that already have AIS present, what factors have the strongest spatial correlation with established AIS locations?
2. Can the data be used to predict/model where AIS are most likely to establish within lakes that do not currently have AIS present?

See the RFQ for more details and information. Quotes must be received by July 20, 2022. 

Any questions may be directed to Brian Greene (brian.greene@tnc.org)
