Summary
Abstract: In order to facilitate descriptions of groundfish habitat over a large portion of the EBS shelf, the NMFS/AFSC has assembled a single comprehensive database of the point sample data (EBSSED; n=2,587) from all available sources. The database represents sediment variation over the study area with uncompromized (i.e., original) spatial detail. Textural data in the database are of two main types: 1) ... View entire text
