Coastal Bend Texas Benthic Habitat - Espiritu Santo Bay 2007 Biotic

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

In 2006 and 2007 the NOAA Office for Coastal Management purchased services to process existing and new digital multi-spectral imagery and create digital benthic habitat data from this imagery for selected Texas coastal bend bays.The Center worked cooperatively with Fugro-EarthData, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and the Texas A and M University Center for Coastal Studies to develop benthic habitat data, primarily Submerged Aquatic Vegetation(SAV) for several coastal bays. This data will support the state's recently adopted Seagrass Monitoring Program which calls for regional mapping of SAV for status and trends assessment. The Center, Texas A and M, and TPWD have coordinated on the requirements of this project.
