Abstract: The US EPA's National Coastal Assessment surveys the condition of the Nation's coastal resources by creating an integrated, comprehensive monitoring program among the coastal states.
To answer broad-scale questions on environmental conditions, EMAP and its partners have collected estuarine and coastal data from thousands of stations along the coasts of the continental United States. EMAP's ... National Coastal Assessment comprises all the estuarine and coastal sampling done by EMAP beginning in 1990. This includes the sampling done in the biogeographic provinces as well as data from the Regional EMAP (REMAP) studies done by EPA Regional Offices. These data can be retrieved and stations mapped from applications under NCA Data. Coastal 2000 is a five-year effort to survey the condition of the Nations's coastal resources by creating an integrated, comprehensive coastal monitoring program among the coastal states. The Station Location and Sampling Visit data sets report information regarding stations sampled during 2000-01 in the National Coastal Assessment in the Northeast Region.
Sponsor: United States Environmental Protection Agency in partnership with the coastal states.
