LAND COVER - CLASSIFICATION and Other Data from UNKNOWN from 19720101 to 19721231 (NODC Accession 7310519)

This project was undertaken in order to gain an overview of the present plans, projects and information base for Delaware Bay with a view to planning and possible future regulation by the Delaware River Basin Commission. It was carried out by the University of Delaware under contract to the Basin Commission with Sea Grant funding matched with a baseline study planning grant from the National Geographic Society.

The geographic area covered by the the study is Delaware Bay and its immediate environs. Delaware Bay is taken to be the water area bounded by New Jersey and Delaware and extending from a line between Capes Henlopen and May up to Liston Point. Of necessity, the report also concerns itself with the contiguous shore areas and other areas exerting, or likely to exert, a major influence on the bay.

The study was divided into two major portions: a sociopolitical one, and an engineering and scientific one. The sociopolitical portion of the study was subcontracted to the Natural ad Historical Resource Associates, who were given access to relevant portions of the unpublished report of the Delaware Governor's Task Force in Coastal and Marine Affairs as well as certain supporting materials. These materials had been prepared by Sate and University of Delaware personnel in response to requests by the Task Force

Supplemental Information
The publication listed below is related to the data collection and is available from the NOAA Central Library:

Inventory and evaluation of information on Delaware Bay, Vol 1-3. [Newark, N.J.? : Delaware River Basin Commission, [1972]. NOAA Library catalog link, last accessed on March 11 2009 at <a href="http://www.lib.noaa.gov/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/0/5/?searchdata1=ocm03080833">Inventory and evaluation of information on Delaware Bay, Vol 1-3</A>).

Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
