Title:
Post Hurricane Katrina Damage Assessment of Seagrass Resources of Coastal Alabama
Description:
Abstract:
These data were collected to help evaluate the effects of Hurricane Katrina on seagrass meadows along the Alabama coast.
Purpose:
The purpose of these data is to visually represent in a GIS where, at previously surveyed points along the Alabama coast, seagrass can be found and in what densities.
