Abstract: This is a continuation of the field-mapping project started in FY02 by Dr. G. Carl Schoch. This proposal seeks funding to complete the field mapping and building a database of the geomorphology and physical attributes of shallow intertidal habitats for the Kachemak Bay area. We regard this as the foundation for developing a monitoring program to detect changes in nearshore communities resulting from shifts in watershed and marine processes. Other map tools such as the NOAA Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI), and the Shore-zone Classification were developed for oil spill response planning and do not contain the data necessary for resolving small spatial scale features of the shoreline needed in ecological studies where biophysical linkages often occur at scales of less than one meter.
