Data Management Plan
DMP Template v2.0.1 (2015-01-01)Please provide the following information, and submit to the NOAA DM Plan Repository.
Reference to Master DM Plan (if applicable)
As stated in Section IV, Requirement 1.3, DM Plans may be hierarchical. If this DM Plan inherits provisions from a higher-level DM Plan already submitted to the Repository, then this more-specific Plan only needs to provide information that differs from what was provided in the Master DM Plan.
1. General Description of Data to be Managed
Critical habitat includes two specific marine areas in Cook Inlet, Alaska. These areas are bounded on the upland by Mean High Water (MHW) datum, except for the lower reaches of four tributary rivers. Critical habitat shall not extend into the tidally-influenced channels of tributary waters of Cook Inlet, with the exceptions noted in the descriptions of each critical habitat area.(1) Area 1. All marine waters of Cook Inlet north of a line from the mouth of Threemile Creek (61Â°08.5â² N., 151Â°04.4â² W.) connecting to Point Possession (61Â°02.1â² N., 150Â°24.3â² W.), including waters of the Susitna River south of 61Â°20.0â² N., the Little Susitna River south of 61Â°18.0â² N., and the Chickaloon River north of 60Â°53.0â² N.(2) Area 2. All marine waters of Cook Inlet south of a line from the mouth of Threemile Creek (61Â°08.5â² N., 151Â°04.4â² W.) to Point Possession (61Â°02.1â² N., 150Â°24.3â² W.) and north of 60Â°15.0â² N., including waters within 2 nautical miles seaward of MHW along the western shoreline of Cook Inlet between 60Â°15.0â² N. and the mouth of the Douglas River (59Â°04.0â² N., 153Â°46.0â² W.); all waters of Kachemak Bay east of 151Â°40.0â² W.; and waters of the Kenai River below the Warren Ames bridge at Kenai, Alaska.Critical habitat does not include manmade structures and the land on which they rest within the designated boundaries that were in existence as of May 11, 2011.Critical habitat does not include the following areas owned by the Department of Defense or for which the Secretary has determined to exclude for reasons of national security:(1) All property and overlying waters of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson between Mean Higher High Water and Mean High Water; and(2) All waters off the Port of Anchorage which are east of a line connecting Cairn Point (61Â°15.4â² N., 149Â°52.8â² W.) and Point MacKenzie (61Â°14.3â² N., 149Â°59.2â² W.) and north of a line connecting Point MacKenzie and the north bank of the mouth of Ship Creek (61Â°13.6â² N., 149Â°53.8â² W.).

2. Point of Contact for this Data Management Plan (author or maintainer)
Notes: The name of the Person of the most recent Support Role of type "Metadata Contact" is used. The support role must be in effect.
Notes: The name of the Organization of the most recent Support Role of type "Metadata Contact" is used. This field is required if applicable.
3. Responsible Party for Data Management
Program Managers, or their designee, shall be responsible for assuring the proper management of the data produced by their Program. Please indicate the responsible party below.
Notes: The name of the Person of the most recent Support Role of type "Data Steward" is used. The support role must be in effect.
Programs must identify resources within their own budget for managing the data they produce.
5. Data Lineage and Quality
NOAA has issued Information Quality Guidelines for ensuring and maximizing the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of information which it disseminates.
(describe or provide URL of description):
- 2011-05-06 00:00:00 - Data creation process 2011. CIB_critical_habitat.shp (NAD_1983_Alaska_Albers) Attributes were updated 02-24-2017.
- 2021-02-01 00:00:00 - AK source data CIB_critical_habitat.shp (NAD_1983_Alaska_Albers) -> converted to feature class WhaleBeluga_CookInletDPS_20110411 (GCS_WGS_1984). Field "Name" into "Unit" and field "SubName" into "Notes". Geometry was not edited, attributes were edited, metadata was edited and populated using the source shapefile, final rule, and CFR.

7. Data Access
NAO 212-15 states that access to environmental data may only be restricted when distribution is explicitly limited by law, regulation, policy (such as those applicable to personally identifiable information or protected critical infrastructure information or proprietary trade information) or by security requirements. The EDMC Data Access Procedural Directive contains specific guidance, recommends the use of open-standard, interoperable, non-proprietary web services, provides information about resources and tools to enable data access, and includes a Waiver to be submitted to justify any approach other than full, unrestricted public access.
Notes: The name of the Organization of the most recent Support Role of type "Distributor" is used. The support role must be in effect. This information is not required if an approved access waiver exists for this data.
Notes: This field is required if a Distributor has not been specified.
Notes: All URLs listed in the Distribution Info section will be included. This field is required if applicable.
Notes: This field is required if applicable.
8. Data Preservation and Protection
The NOAA Procedure for Scientific Records Appraisal and Archive Approval describes how to identify, appraise and decide what scientific records are to be preserved in a NOAA archive.
(Specify NCEI-MD, NCEI-CO, NCEI-NC, NCEI-MS, World Data Center (WDC) facility, Other, To Be Determined, Unable to Archive, or No Archiving Intended)
