Protecting Local Species with Better Detection Met...

We reviewed strategies for detecting invasive species, such as snowflake coral and hookweed, in deep- water habitats of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and developed protocols for an invasive species field ...

Sampling Design Tool for ArcGIS

The Sampling Design Tool for ArcGIS randomly selects people, animals, objects, or places in a GIS environment to infer status or change. The tool was developed to create and implement ...

Scientific Support for Mesophotic and Deep Benthic...

We are working on a collaborative set of projects to better understand and restore mesophotic and deep benthic communities in the Gulf of Mexico impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon ...

Spatial Analysis of Groundfish to Support Oregon’s...

Coastal planners need accurate and accessible information on marine resources to make good management decisions. We analyzed groundfish trawl surveys to map groundfish abundance and diversity off the coast of ...

Mapping Ecological Priorities and Human Impacts to Support Land-Sea Management of Puerto Rico's Northeast Marine Corridor

This report describes a spatial characterization conducted to support the development of an integrated management plan for Puerto Rico's Northeast Marine Corridor. The Northeast Marine Corridor is a large, landsea reserve network, making it unique in the region for both ...

Modeling Seabird Distributions off the Pacific Coast of Washington

This report presents seasonal distribution maps of selected seabird species off the Pacific coast of Washington. Maps were created to support state-led marine spatial planning by identifying ecologically important areas for seabirds. Seabird distribution maps were constructed by predicting relative ...

Predictive mapping of seabirds, pinnipeds and cetaceans off the Pacific Coast of Washington

This report presents long-term seasonal distribution maps of selected seabird, pinniped and cetacean species off the Pacific coast of Washington. The maps were created to support state-led marine spatial planning and responsible stewardship of natural resources by the Olympic Coast ...

Predictive mapping of seabirds, pinnipeds and cetaceans off the Pacific Coast of Washington from 1995-07-21 to 2015-12-08 (NCEI Accession 0148762)

This data collection comprises seasonal distribution maps and model outputs of selected seabird, pinniped and cetacean species off the Pacific coast of Washington. The maps were developed by predicting relative density using associative models linking at-sea species observations with environmental ...

Priorities for Lakebed Mapping in Lake Huron’s Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary

The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary (TBNMS) encompasses 4,300 mi² of Lake Huron off the northeastern shore of Michigan. Much of the lakebed in the sanctuary was mapped prior to 1950 and therefore those data suffer from multiple deficiencies by ...

Priorities for Lakebed Mapping in the Proposed Wisconsin-Lake Michigan National Marine Sanctuary

The Wisconsin-Lake Michigan National Marine Sanctuary has been proposed along the western shore of Lake Michigan between the cities of Two-Rivers and Port Washington, Wisconsin. Much of the proposed sanctuary and rest of Lake Michigan were mapped prior to 1950 and therefore ...

USVI St. Croix Hard Bottom Fish and Benthic Community Characterization Trip Report

In May 2012, NOAA led a multiagency mission to conduct a comprehensive assessment of fish and benthic communities at depths between 1-100 feet (0.5-30 m) around the island of St. Croix ...

Where, what, when, and why is bottom mapping needed? An on-line application to set priorities using expert opinion

Globally there is a lack of resources to survey the vast seafloor areas in need of basic mapping data. Consequently, smaller areas must be prioritized to address the most urgent needs. We developed a systematic, quantitative approach and on-line application ...
