Abstract
  • The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) is developing a nationally standardized database on landcover and habitat change in the coastal regions of the United States. The Willapa Bay eelgrass mapping project was granted to the Columbia River Estuary Study Task force (CREST) of Astoria, OR during the fall of 1994 by C-CAP. The mapping of eelgrass in Willapa Bay serves to add the Willapa Bay eelgrass inventory to the National C-CAP data bank, and to evaluate C-CAP guidelines for mapping submergent aquatic vegetation as applied in West Coast environments. This study includes a report on the methodology used to execute the eelgrass mapping project, a review of guideline criteria which proved to be limiting during the mapping process, and discussion of alternatives that could be considered for future eelgrass mapping projects in Willapa Bay.
