Web Access to Estuarine Assessments Improves Data Availability to Managers
The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science website features new access to data and online analysis of three assessments (Chesapeake Bay, Delaware Bay and St. Lucie Estuary). The data include chemical contaminant residue levels in sediment and tissue, measures of sediment toxicity and benthic infauna community metrics. Users will be able to download the data and the report. Online mapping and data analysis tools will also be available.
