Puget Sound Intertidal Habitat Inventory; Puget Sound Ambient Monitoring Program, 1996 (NODC Accession 9900221)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Puget Sound's intertidal areas provide habitat for species of commercial, recreational, biotic, and aesthetic value. Habitat is a critical ecosystem component -- it provides living space for permanent and transitory species, and supports primary production, food webs, and other ecosystem functions. Accurate information on the quality and quantity of intertidal habitats is important to monitoring and sustaining the health of Puget Sound.

This CD-ROM contains Intertidal Habitat Inventory information collected by the Nearshore Habitat Program in the Washington State Department of Natural Resources' (DNR) Aquatic Resources Division. The program is part of an ongoing project to monitor the Puget Sound nearshore environment through the Puget Sound Ambient Monitoring Program (PSAMP). During the summer of 1996 and 1997, approximately 230 miles of shoreline were surveyed from the Northern Skagit County border southward to the north fork of the Skagit River, and northern Whidbey Island in Island County.

Supplemental Information
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.
