Summary

This dataset was developed as part of the research for a Royal Roads University master's thesis entitled "Assessing the impact of human activities on British Columbia’s estuaries". The work was also published through PLOS One (Robb, 2014). The estuary polygons were created by the Pacific Estuary Conservation Program (PECP). Please see Ryder et al., 2007 for more information on their creation. This dataset includes a subset of the PECP estuary dataset because only those estuary polygons that could be linked to to a unique watershed were considered in the analysis. The attributes for each estuary polygon show the spatial coverage of different human activities within the bounds of the estuary and its upstream watershed. The areas represented [...]

Purpose

This dataset used a subset of the PECP estuaries (Ryder et al., 2007) and was created to show the effect of human activities on BC estuaries when the spatial zone of impact of the human activities is considered. The work was completed as part of an MSc thesis completed through Royal Roads University entitled "Assessing the impact of human activities on British Columbia’s estuaries". The research was also published through PLOS One (Robb, 2014).
