Title: Aransas Bay 1993-1994
Short Name: Aransas Bay 1993-1994
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 1993
Publication Date: 2018
Abstract:

During September 20-23, 1993 and May 9-12, 1994, a total of 200 samples were collected at proposed dredge disposal sites along the Intercoastal Waterway in Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, Texas. Vegetated habitats supported significantly higher densities of most numerically dominant species. Nekton mean size also differed among habitats.

Purpose:

Estimate relative nursery values of Spartina alterniflora salt marsh, seagrass, and shallow non-vegetated habitats.

Notes:

Nekton use of salt marsh, seagrass, and nonvegetated habitats in Aransas Bay, Texas: September 1993 and May 1994.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

Attribute_Accuracy_Report: Data were entered into spreadsheets and checked against the raw data sheet to avoid entry errors

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

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

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?: Yes
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: NCEI-MS
Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Archiving: 0
How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:

The data resides on a secure database server only accessible through the NMFS network requiring separate multi-factor authentication for both network and database access.

Lineage

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 284957
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.
