There are three main components to the ESI: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources. The shoreline and intertidal areas are ranked based on sensitivity determined by: (1) Shoreline type (substrate, grain size, tidal elevation, origin); (2) Exposure to wave and tidal energy; (3) Biological productivity and sensitivity; and (4) Ease of cleanup. The biology layers focus on threatened/endangered species, areas of high concentration and areas where sensitive life stages may occur. Supporting data tables provide species/location-specific abundance, seasonality, status, life history, and source information Human use resources mapped include managed areas (parks, refuges, critical habitats,...

This data set contains vector lines and polygons representing the shoreline and coastal habitats of Western Alaska classified according to the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) classification system. This data set comprises a portion of the ESI for Western Alaska. ESI data characterize the marine and coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil. The ESI data include information for three main components: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources.

This service shows the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) developed for the the outer coast of Washington in 1985. Both linear and polygonal shoreline features are included here. Associated GIS datasets can be downloaded here.ESI maps use shoreline rankings to rate how sensitive an area of shoreline would be to an oil spill. The ranking scale goes from 1 to 10.A rank of 1 represents shorelines with the least susceptibility to damage by oiling. Examples include steep, exposed rocky cliffs and banks. The oil cannot penetrate into the rock and will be washed off quickly by the waves and tides.A rank of 10 represents shorelines most likely to be damaged by oiling. Examples include protected, vegetated wetlands,...

NOTE: RESTRICTED DATA. This dataset comprises Unusually Sensitive Areas (USAs) data for ecological resources in the state of Wyoming. In accordance with pipeline safety laws (49 U.S.C. Section 60109), PHMSA is required to identify areas unusually sensitive to environmental damage in the event of a hazardous liquid pipeline accident. Through interactions with various regulatory agencies, pipeline operators, private contractors, non-profit conservation organizations, and the general public, a process has been developed and adopted by PHMSA to identify USAs for ecological resources. The process consists of identifying a set of candidate ecological resources using approved data sources, and subjecting candidates to...
