Summary

This data product was created for the project titled: “Application of the Coastal and Marine Ecological Classification Standard (CMECS) to the Northwest Atlantic” which was partially funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service and a joint collaborative project with The Nature Conservancy (Eastern Division Conservation Science), University of Rhode Island (Graduate School of Oceanography), and Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game (Division of Marine Fisheries). In the Northeast United States region, efforts are underway to better organize and integrate spatial marine data to support ocean planning and management efforts. An important step in this process is translating existing data with varying purposes, [...]

Purpose

This project tested the utility of Coastal and Marine Ecological Classification Standard (CMECS) in crosswalking and mapping legacy classified benthic habitat data at the local, subregional and regional scales. This dataset reflects the final regional scale CMECS crosswalk results for the Northwest Atlantic Marine Ecoregional Assessment's (NAMERA) Benthic Habitat Model.
