Abstract: This project will conduct aerial video mapping of the northern coastal areas of Afognak and Kodiak islands at extreme low tides; these locations have been identified as among the highest risk for spill impacts. 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. Imagery will be collected with future application ShoreZone protocols for mapping biological, geological and anthropogenic attributes. Approximately 1,600 km of coastline will be mapped in a five-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 02613/ Mapping Marine Habitats: Prince William Sound to McCarty Fjord.
