Coastlines at Risk - An Index of Potential Development-Related Threats to Coastal Ecosystems
Entry ID: WRI_coastlinesatrisk


Summary
Abstract: An index of potential threats to coastal ecosystems due to development-related
activities was developed. These threats range from habitat destruction, to
sewage and industrial pollution, and to species introductions. The index is
based on five globally available georeferenced indicators of human pressures:
Population density, cities, major ports, road networks; and pipelines

Quality Topographic and bathymetric data were collected utilizing Three-Wire Leveling
with a Sokia Autolevel 20x, Acoustic Doppler Profiler and water depth probings
with corresponding water level gage measurements. All data points collected in
pool 2B were merged in ArcToolbox of ArcGIS 9.1 to aid in interpolation. All
data collected was conducted in Pool 2B of Ottawa Wildlife Refuge.
