Intertidal Data from 1982-2017 Publicly Available

Thursday, December 13, 2018

SML's intertidal dataset from 1982-2017 is now publicly available through the Environmental Data Initiative. Per the description on EDI's website, the dataset "dataset includes species presence, abundance, size, and distribution of key intertidal organisms (macroalgae, algae, invertebrate) since 1982, the earliest year for which full records were available for digital archive."

This work was made possible thanks to a number of key SML mentors and interns. First and foremost is 2018 EDI Fellow An Nguyen, whose work during her internship prepared the datasets for publication with EDI. An had support from intertidal ecology internship mentors, Drs. Kylla Benes and Chris Siddon.
