Item Identification

Title: Corpus Christi-East Matagorda Bay 1986
Short Name: Corpus Christ/East Matagorda Bay 1986
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Patterns of habitat utilization were compared among transplanted and natural Spartina alterniflora marshes in the Halls Lake area of Chocolate Bay in the Galveston Bay estuary, and East Matagorda and Corpus Christi Bay systems along the lower Texas coast to test the null hypothesis that transplanted marshes along the Texas coast were equivalent to natural marshes.

Purpose:

Identify and describe the relationship between fishery productivity and the coastal environment.

Notes:

Utilization of natural and transplanted Texas salt marshes by fish and decapod crustaceans during spring 1986. Corpus Christ/East Matagorda Bay study

Data Quality

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Each sample was assigned a unique identification code. Field collected samples were tagged redundantly (e.g. one label inside of the collection vessel and a matching label attached to the outside of the vessel). The identifier and its associated information (e.g. date, location, habitat) was recorded on field data sheets. Once a sample arrived at the laboratory, the label remained with the sample throughout the various stages of sample processing. After data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet or similar database file, the information was printed out and compared against the field data sheets by two biologists. Corrections were made at this time and saved. The electronic file was also sorted and examined by the Lab Supervisor or other project personnel in a variety of ways to look for outliers, missing data, and other potential errors.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 282833
Description:

After sample collection, field data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet or database file (DBF) using database manager software. A text file was created to describe these data and associated variables. Entered data were checked against the field sheets by two biologists to minimize entry errors. Samples were processed in the laboratory, sorted, specimens identified and measured, and information was entered into an Excel spreadsheet or DBF file. Files were printed out and compared against original data sheets by two biologists for data entry errors. Corrections were made at this time, the electronic file was saved, and a back-up copy made. Hard copies of the QCd files were printed and stored in the project folder along with the original field and laboratory data sheets. The electronic file was also sorted and examined by the Lab Supervisor or other project personnel in a variety of ways to look for outliers, missing data, and other potential errors. Verified data files were then saved electronically on the Galveston Laboratory server and backed-up as needed.
