Abstract: This project will conduct aerial video imaging and mapping of the coastal areas of the outer Kenai Coast (Prince William Sound to McCarty Fjord) at extreme low tides. Video mapping will employ the shore zone mapping protocols of the Washington ShoreZone mapping project (which was used for the entire state of Washington coastline and the British Columbia coast), incorporating all of their features and new ones appropriate for Alaska. Biological, geological and anthropogenic attributes of the coast will be mapped. Approximately 2,100 km of coastline will be mapped in a six-day survey. Final imagery will be set up on an ArcIMS website. This project is related to Project 02556/Mapping Marine Habitats: Kachemak Bay and Project 02619/ Mapping Marine Habitats: Kodiak.
