Full Citation Examples

Abstract

As part of the AMAPPS program, the Southeast Fisheries Science Center conducted aerial surveys of continental shelf and slope waters (up to the 2,000 m isobath) along the US east coast from New Jersey to Florida. The survey was conducted in 2016 between 3 July and 9 August aboard a NOAA Twin Otter aircraft at an altitude of 600 feet (183 m) and a speed of 110 knots. Survey tracklines were oriented perpendicular to the shoreline and latitudinally spaced 20 km apart. Fine-scale tracklines were surveyed closer to the shores of NJ, DE and VA over renewable energy leasing areas.

The survey was designed for analysis using Distance sampling and a two-team (independent observer) approach to correct for perception bias in resulting abundance estimates. Due to staffing issues on 20 Nov the survey was flown with one team with four observers (left and right bubbles, belly and a data recorder).

By accepting this document, the user agrees to the following when using OBIS-SEAMAP data in any publication, product, or commercial application:

For datasets under the CC-BY or CC-BY-NC sharing policy, permission is not required from the data provider(s) for use. Proper credit/citations for individual datasets and OBIS-SEAMAP are required (see below for more details),

For datasets under the "permission required" sharing policy, it is required that users contact and get permission from the original data provider(s) for the use of individual observation records from the datasets registered in the OBIS-SEAMAP database. Proper credit/citations for individual datasets and OBIS-SEAMAP are required (see below for more details),

Gridded summary data that OBIS-SEAMAP has generated are under CC-BY sharing policy and permission is not required from the original data provider(s) for use. Proper credit/citation for OBIS-SEAMAP is required (see below for more details),

Title: AMAPPS Southeast Aerial Cruise Summer 2016 at OBIS-SEAMAP
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2018
Abstract:

As part of the AMAPPS program, the Southeast Fisheries Science Center conducted aerial surveys of continental shelf and slope waters (up to the 2,000 m isobath) along the US east coast from New Jersey to Florida. The survey was conducted in 2016 between 3 July and 9 August aboard a NOAA Twin Otter aircraft at an altitude of 600 feet (183 m) and a speed of 110 knots. Survey tracklines were oriented perpendicular to the shoreline and latitudinally spaced 20 km apart. Fine-scale tracklines were surveyed closer to the shores of NJ, DE and VA over renewable energy leasing areas.

The survey was designed for analysis using Distance sampling and a two-team (independent observer) approach to correct for perception bias in resulting abundance estimates. Due to staffing issues on 20 Nov the survey was flown with one team with four observers (left and right bubbles, belly and a data recorder).

Purpose:

The goal of the survey was to conduct line-transect surveys using the Distance sampling approach to estimate the abundance and spatial distribution of cetaceans and turtles in waters over the continental shelf and slope (shoreline to 2,000 m isobath) of the eastern USA.

Data Quality

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Visual sightings are reviewed by lead observers and the field party chief at sea to verify species identifications and group size counts. Effort and sightings data from digital records are reviewed post-survey and compared to field notes and error logs. Corrected survey effort shapefiles are visually reviewed and verified.

Data Management

Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?: No
Approximate Percentage of Budget for these Data Devoted to Data Management: 0
Do these Data Comply with the Data Access Directive?: No
Is Access to the Data Limited Based on an Approved Waiver?: No
If Distributor (Data Hosting Service) is Needed, Please Indicate: No
Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Dissemination: 365
If Delay is Longer than Latency of Automated Processing, Indicate Under What Authority Data Access is Delayed:

N/A

Actual or Planned Long-Term Data Archive Location: To Be Determined
If To Be Determined, Unable to Archive, or No Archiving Intended, Explain:

The archival process is currently under development.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 1224891
Description:

Trackline, visual sightings, and passive acoustic data are collected using at-sea data collection programs. Field notes are recorded by observers and written onto paper datasheets which are then key entered into digital databases.
