Item Identification

Title: Grand Isle 1988
Short Name: Grand Isle 1988
Status: Completed
Abstract:

During July and October 1988, a total of 42 samples were collected in salt marsh habitats of the Caminada Bay system near Grand Isle, Louisiana to evaluate the use of the marsh surface by aquatic fauna on flood tide. Differences in animal densities between the marsh surface and nonvegetated marsh edge were compared and evaluated.

Purpose:

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

Notes:

A survey and assessment of nekton usage in a Caminada Bay salt marsh at Grand Isle, Louisiana: July and October 1988

Data Quality

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Quality control was provided by comparing field data sheets and specimen identification (ID) sheets against the entered data print-out. One biologist read from the field data or specimen ID sheet while a second biologist checked the data entry print-out. Corrections were made at this time and saved. The project data manager also examined these corrected data, and sorted these data in a variety of ways to look for outliers, missing information, and other potential errors.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 284840
Description:

After sample collection, laboratory and field data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet or data base file (DBF) using database manager software and a text file created to describe these data and associated variables. Entered data were checked against field data sheets to minimize entry errors. Samples were processed in the laboratory. After samples were sorted, and specimens identified and measured, information was entered into an Excel spreadsheet or DBF file, and printed out. Quality control was provided by comparing entered data against the specimen identification (ID) sheet by one biologist reading from the ID sheet and a second biologist checking the data print-out. Corrections were made at this time, saved, and a back-up copy made. Hard copies of the files were then printed, and provided to the Principal Investigator. A print-out was also stored in the project folder along with the original field and laboratory data sheets.
