Item Identification

Title: Long Island Sound 2016 INVERT
Short Name: Long Island Sound 2016 INVERT
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016
Abstract:

This feature class resides within the BIOLOGY Feature Data Set of the Long Island Sound - 2016 ESI Geodatabase. It contains vector polygons representing sensitive biological resource data for invertebrates in Long Island Sound. The study area includes Long Island Sound, tidal tributaries and bays, freshwater streams, lakes, and land areas in New York and Connecticut. The 33 total invertebrate species include mollusks, crustaceans, and insects. Vector polygons in this data set represent invertebrate distributions, spawning and nursery areas, concentration areas, migration areas, harvest areas, and areas of vulnerable occurrence.

Species-specific abundance, seasonality, status, life history, and source information are stored in associated data tables (described in Entity Attribute Overview below) designed to be used in conjunction with this spatial data layer. This data set is a portion of the ESI data for Long Island Sound.

As a whole, the ESI data characterize the marine and coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil, and include information for three main components: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources.

Purpose:

The ESI data are intended to provide baseline environmental data for oil spill planning and response. The Clean Water Act with amendments by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 requires response plans for immediate and effective protection of sensitive resources. The ESI data may be appropriate for many other coastal management efforts, though the original intent should be kept in mind.

Notes:

Developed from MERMAid record number 1559. Converted from Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata (version FGDC-STD-001-1998) using 'fgdc_to_inport_xml.pl' script in April 2017. Contact Tyler Christensen (NOS) for details.

Data Set Information

Data Set Scope Code: Data Set
Data Set Type: GIS Files
Maintenance Frequency: As Needed
Maintenance Note:

Data content is considered static once published. However, if issues with the Geodatabase linkages or table contents are identified, the Geodatabase and/or the associated Map Document may be updated. Assure most current data is being used by downloading from https://response.restoration.noaa.gov/esi_download and/or comparing modification dates provided at this site.

Data Presentation Form: Map (digital)
Entity Attribute Overview:

The primary attribute tables associated with the ESI biology data are BIOFILE, SOURCES, and BREED_DT. The geographic data layer containing biological resource information (in this case, INVERT) is linked to the BIOFILE using the RARNUM field. There is a many-to-many relationship from the data layer to the BIOFILE, as an RARNUM may be repeated in several geographic features. Likewise, in the BIOFILE, the same RARNUM may appear in multiple records, representing a unique combination of species found in that region. To be represented by the same RARNUM, these species groups must also share the same seasonality, concentration, mapping qualifier, and source information.

The items in the BIOFILE are ELEMENT, SUBELEMENT, NAME, GEN_SPEC, S, F, STATE, S_DATE, F_DATE, GRANK, GRANKDATE, MAPPING_QUALIFIER, CONC, JAN, FEB, MAR, APR, MAY, JUN, JUL, AUG, SEP, OCT, NOV, DEC, BREED1, BREED2, BREED3, BREED4, BREED5, RARNUM, G_SOURCE, S_SOURCE, and BREED. The G_SOURCE and S_SOURCE fields provide links to the SOURCES table, where object level source information is available. The BREED field is the link to the BREED_DT table, where searchable breed information is provided. The links to both of these tables are also many-to-many.

During the collection of the ESI data, six relational data tables are used to store the attribute data. These are the BIORES, BREED, SEASONAL, SOURCES, SPECIES, and STATUS tables. When we create new ESI data, we populate these tables to maintain the integrity of the data collected. Once completed, all information populating these tables is collapsed into the BIOFILE to ease data queries and general usability of the final product.

Entity Attribute Detail Citation:

A complete description of entity types, attributes, and attribute values for ESI atlases can be found in the NOAA ESI Guidelines. This includes documentation of the six relational tables (mentioned above) used during data collection.

Distribution Liability:

Although these data have been processed and used successfully on a computer system at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by NOAA regarding the utility of the data on any other system, nor shall the act of distribution constitute any such warranty. NOAA warrants the delivery of this product in computer-readable format. If problems are encountered in downloading the ESI data or with file corruption, contact NOAA (see Distributor). These data represent a snapshot in time and temporal changes may have occurred. The data are not intended to include all biological or human-use resources present in an area; they focus on species and resources particularly sensitive to oiling. In the event of a spill, they should be used for a first assessment only. The data providers are the experts with regard to individual resources. They should be contacted to confirm if more current data exist or if in-depth information is needed about a particular resource.

Technical Environment

Description:

The software packages used to develop the atlas are Environmental Systems Research Institute's ArcGIS for Desktop 10.4(R) and SQL SERVER(R) (version 2005). The hardware configuration is PCs with Windows Operating System 7.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

A multi-stage error checking process is used to verify both attribute accuracy and logical consistency throughout data production. The process includes a standardized data entry methodology, data review by in-house and external resource experts, a final Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) process, and multiple automated logical consistency checks. Quantitative data (such as densities, counts, abundances, or concentrations) provided by resource experts for inclusion in the data set may vary widely in attribute accuracy, depending upon the methodology used to collect and compile such data. For a more detailed evaluation of source data attribute accuracy, check the sources listed in the Lineage section.

Completeness Report:

These data represent a synthesis of sources of data, e.g., expert knowledge, available hardcopy documents, survey data, maps, and digital data on invertebrate distributions in the Long Island Sound study area. These data do not represent all invertebrate occurrences in Long Island Sound. The following 33 species are included in this data set: (Species_ID, Common Name, Scientific Name or "n/a" if not applicable): 19, Blue mussel, Mytilus edulis; 25, Softshell clam, Mya arenaria; 41, Bay scallop, Argopecten irradians; 42, Northern quahog, Mercenaria mercenaria; 43, Eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica; 44, Horseshoe crab, Limulus polyphemus; 45, American lobster, Homarus americanus; 46, Channeled whelk, Busycon canaliculatum; 49, Blue crab, Callinectes sapidus; 73, Longfin squid, Loligo pealeii; 80, Ribbed mussel, Geukensia demissa; 97, Grass shrimp, Palaemonetes spp.; 122, Mantis shrimp, Squilla empusa; 276, Sevenspine bay shrimp, Crangon septemspinosa; 287, Atlantic surfclam, Spisula solidissima; 303, Atlantic rock crab, Cancer irroratus; 304, Green crab, Carcinus maenas; 305, Jonah crab, Cancer borealis; 378, Rare insect, n/a; 380, Rare freshwater mussel, n/a; 495, Fiddler crab, Uca spp.; 571, Lady crab, Ovalipes ocellatus; 585, Coastal barrens buckmoth, Hemileuca maia ssp. 5; 586, Pine Barrens underwing, Catocala herodias gerhardi; 638, Endangered freshwater mussel, n/a; 650, Threatened insect, n/a; 660, Frosted elfin, Callophrys irus; 663, Hessel's hairstreak, Callophrys hesseli; 665, Jersey jair underwing, Catocala jair ssp. 2; 667, Little bluet, Enallagma minusculum; 669, Pine Barrens bluet, Enallagma recurvatum; 670, Scarlet bluet, Enallagma pictum; 1060, Spider crabs, Libinia spp.

Conceptual Consistency:

A multi-stage error checking process, described in the above Attribute Accuracy Report, is used to verify both attribute accuracy and logical consistency throughout data production. This process includes multiple automated logical consistency checks that test the files for missing or duplicate data, rules for proper coding, GIS topological consistencies, and SQL SERVER(R) to ArcGIS(R) consistencies. A final review is made by the GIS manager, before the final Geodatabase and metadata are created. After the data are delivered to NOAA, they are again subjected to several consistency checks, and processed into the final delivery format.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 581908
Description:

Selection of Species: Thirty-three species of invertebrates are represented in this atlas, and this is not intended to include all species present within the study area. Species were selected based on conservation interest (i.e. endangered, threatened, or special concern), ecological importance, or commercial or recreational importance. Mollusk species include nine bivalves, one cephalopod (longfin squid), and one gastropod (channeled whelk). Ten insect species are included, most of which are considered rare, threatened, or endangered. Other arthropod species include seven decapod crabs, three shrimps, horseshoe crab, and American lobster. In all, a total of 698 polygons are used to represent the distributions of the 33 selected invertebrate species. A total of 29 sources were cited to develop the invertebrate data set.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 581909
Description:

Developing information for species of concern: Distributions of rare, endangered, or threatened invertebrate species (e.g., coastal barrens buckmoth, scarlet bluet) were represented by developing polygons based on information provided state Natural Heritage Programs in both Connecticut and New York (CT DEEP 2015, NYS NHP 2015). Locations of horseshoe crab spawning areas were identified from published reports and digital GIS data provided by regional experts (Cornell Univ. 2016, Molloy Coll. 2015, Sacred Heart Univ. 2016).

Process Step 3

CC ID: 581910
Description:

Developing information for bivalve mollusks: Bivalve shellfish species in inshore waters include blue and ribbed mussels, bay scallop, eastern oysters, quahog (hard clam), softshell clam, and Atlantic surf clam. In New York portions of Long Island Sound and embayments, these species were largely mapped based on landings data and harvest zone polygons provided by NYS Department of Conservation (NYS DEC 2013). Bivalve shellfish in areas along the Connecticut shore were largely mapped using polygon representations of shellfish beds provided by CT Department of Agriculture \x96 Bureau of Aquaculture (CT Dept. Ag. 2016).

Process Step 4

CC ID: 581911
Description:

Developing information for mainstem Long Island Sound: In mainstem areas of Long Island Sound, information on invertebrate species was provided by published reports from the Long Island Sound Trawl Survey, conducted by Connecticut\x92s Marine Fisheries Division in Old Lyme, CT (Gotschall and Pacileo 2015). A study recently published by The Nature Conservancy is based on these trawl survey data, and presents results on a per-species basis (Anderson et al. 2015). Invertebrate species featured in these sources include American lobster, longfin squid, horseshoe crab, and others.

Process Step 5

CC ID: 581912
Description:

Developing information for coastal embayments: In coastal embayments of the New York shore, Western Long Island (WLI) beach seine survey data (provided by NYSDEC staff) reported catch of invertebrate species as well as fishes (NYS DEC 2014b). Areas surveyed include Little Neck Bay, Manhassett Bay, Hempstead Harbor, Oyster Bay, Stony Brook Harbor, Port Jefferson Harbor, and Peconic Bay. Beach seine methods are especially effective for inshore species including blue crab, green crab, horseshoe crab, and spider crabs. Trawl survey data were also provided for Peconic Bay, with lady crab, spider crabs, blue crab, mantis shrimp, horseshoe crab, and longfin squid prominent in the catch (NYS DEC 2014a). New York Department of State\x92s assessments of \x93Significant Coastal Fish and Wildlife Habitat\x94 provided additional information on invertebrate species present in specific areas (NYDS 2015). For the coastal embayments and tidal tributaries on the Connecticut shore, results of the Connecticut Beach Seine Surveys, Inshore Surveys, and other site-specific surveys were applied (Howell 2015, Molnar and Howell 2015, Fell et al. 2003).
