Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) Atlas: Aleutian Islands, Alaska, maps and geographic information systems data (NCEI Accession 0014927)

Metadata Updated: April 16, 2021

This data set comprises the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps for the Aleutian Islands, Alaska. ESI data characterize coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil. The ESI data include information for three main components: shoreline habitats; sensitive biological resources; and human-use resources. This atlas was developed to be utilized within desktop GIS systems and contains GIS files and related data files. Associated files include MOSS (Multiple Overlay Statistical System) export files, .PDF maps, and detailed user guides and metadata.

Geographic features data such as fault lines, geothermal activity, and volcanoes data from the 1950s. Biological and shoreline data utilized in this atlas data from the late 1970s to 2001. Data sources are documented within the included metadata. Data were compiled during 2000-2001.

DO NOT USE ESI MAPS FOR NAVIGATIONAL PURPOSES.
