Sea grass canopy height, wind gust, and others in Coastal Waters of Texas from 2011-08-17 to 2017-11-30 (NCEI Accession 0187104)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

This dataset contains raw TIER 2 sampling data from 2015 and 2017 for Texas coastal waters related to seagrasses. Seagrass parameters measured include canopy height and percent cover. Seagrass species represented within the data include Halodule wrightii and Thalassia testudinum. Sampling takes place at 525 permanent stations in Aransas and Redfish Bays, Corpus Christi Bay, and the Upper and Lower Laguna Madre. Latitudes and longitudes for station locations are based on the NAD83 datum. There was no sampling in 2016. Additionally, this dataset also contains sediment data collected in Redfish Bay in 2011/2012 and 2017. Sediment parameters measured include total organic carbon, ammonium concentrations, and grain size. This dataset also includes interpolated wind speed data values using the recorded maximum sustained gusts of Hurricane Harvey. All data are provided in CSV format.
