        abstract:  Maine's eelgrass (SAV) meadows form an important aquatic habitat for the state. These meadows provide shelter for juvenile fish, and invertebrates. In certain locations they also help stabilize unconsolidated sediments and shorelines. Maine's Department of Marine Resources has mapped the SAV habitat for the entire coast using the Coastal Change Analysis Protocol. This mapping was accomplished from aerial photography acquired between 1993 and 1997. The unified coastal SAV data set is a composite of these multiple year data. These data are in GIS shapefile format (.shp, .dbf, .shx, and .prj files) with associated metadata. And additional subdirectory contains data collected from the Wells, Maine region (York and Webhannet rivers in southern Maine) in 2001 and includes benthic data, sediment grab data, and sediment profile image data. Sample browse graphics of select attributes were generated at the NODC and included in this accession. The benthic data is classified according to the System for Classification of Habitats in Estuarine and Marine Environments (SCHEME). This system is fully described in Development of a System for Classification of Habitats in Estuarine and Marine Environments (SCHEME) for Florida, Report to U.S. EPA - Gulf of Mexico Program, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Florida Marine Research Institute. Review Draft 12/04/02.
