US Environmental Protection Agency National Coastal Assessment for Hawaii 2002: Water Quality, Fish Taxon, Sediment Chemistry Data (NODC Accession 0061250)

browse graphicPreview graphic
In 2002, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Environmental
Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) National Coastal
Assessment (NCA), in conjunction with state agencies, Region 9, and
the University of Hawaii, conducted the first comprehensive survey
of the condition of estuarine resources in Hawaii. The survey
sampled 79 stations on islands of the Hawaiian chain and included
all of the indicators of the NCA surveys. The Hawaiian surveys,
however, did not produce estimates of sediment toxicity because
of insufficient soft sediments, and rather than assessing contaminant
levels in fish, it assessed the body burdens of sea cucumbers.
The Western Pilot-Coastal Monitoring is a large-scale, comprehensive
environmental monitoring strategy designed to provide regional
characterization of estuarine conditions along the West and Pacific
Coasts of the United States.
