The California Rapid Assessment Method is an assessment tool that provides information about the condition of a wetland and the stressors that affect it. Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, the California Coastal Commission, and the Central Coast Wetlands Group have calibrated the tool in the central coast. The Central Coast component of CRAM is part of a larger effort led by the San Francisco Estuary Institute and Southern California Coastal Water Research Project.
