Summary

Description

This geodatabase is a central component of the 2000-2012 Puget Sound eelgrass monitoring dataset. It contains feature classes that delineate all sites in the study area, polygons where eelgrass was observed, and eelgrass area and depth estimates for sites sampled. It is distributed as a Zip archive that also includes a User Manual (pdf format) and an ArcGIS map document for browsing the data in ESRI ArcMap application. The annual eelgrass monitoring is conducted in greater Puget Sound by the Washington Department of Natural Resources. It is part of the work of the Submerged Vegetation Monitoring Program in the Aquatic Resources Division. Field data collection is primarily underwater video collected along linear transects and later processed to generate vegetation presence at points nominally separated by 1 m along each transect. The point transect data are distributed in separate geodatabases.
