Description: With funding from the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership (APNEP) and others [NC Division of Marine Fisheries (NC-DMF), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and US Fish and Wildlife Service (US-FWS)], digital data of coastal submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) was mapped by NC-DMF and Atkins for imagery years 2006-2008 with a planned update by the NC Department of Transportation for imagery years 2012-2013. In addition to its role as critical habitat for many aquatic fauna species, SAV is an important bio-indicator of environmental health because of its sensitivity to aquatic stressors. The ability to detect SAV is critical in understanding ecosystem health and effects of restoration and protection activities. As such, this dataset was developed and intended for research and/or planning. Because SAV distribution, abundance, and density varies seasonally and annually in response to climatic variability, large-scale SAV changes may occur and because of its dynamic nature, this data needs to be continually updated as monitoring continues in the APNEP region.
