History and     
Geology Survey     
  Survey Objectives
Provide survey of historical and geological features of interest in various locations of the Raytheon, Portmouth, Rhode Island site for purposes of wildlife management and trail planning. We are interested in knowing the points of historical and geological significance on our site to not only plan interesting, educational trails, but also to determine species once present at the site in its former role.

Survey Methods
Making use of employees, their families, and local community groups, identify geological and historical features onsite or in a suitable research venue. A checklist has been prepared and is available for download (as prototype) or may be obtained from several centralized nature trail kiosks (future). Check out the Info-Files below to jump-start your knowledge of History and Geology and the use of field guides is suggested for geological determinations. As a group, fill out a checklist per visit or when you have gathered historical research and follow directions in entering the resulting data onto our website. We will periodically compile reports based on the collected data and make them available online.

Check out the historical and geological info-files to find out more about these subjects before you begin.

Database Entry
The database used for History and Geology is of flatfile type with data entry similar in format to the checklist. An account is needed to enter information in the database. Only a survey chairperson has the ability to modify or delete forms once they've been added. For an account, send me an e-mail at webmaster@rewhc.org and access the database here. The database is currently ready for use. The database uses the same username/password set in the bulletin board program. Passwords are synchronized daily, so a delay may be present between changing your bulletin board password and that password proliferating for access to the database.

Database Reporting
Reports provide up-to-the-minute information used for wildlife management planning and verification.
