Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA)

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Using multispectral aerial photography acquired by Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA), shorelines and wetland habitats are being accurately delineated to reference shoreline location and habitat type for fall 2008, fall 2010, and fall 2011.  The habitat mapping effort utilizes the USFWS National Wetlands Inventory hierarchical wetland classification scheme.   This classification will help identify fragile environments that are associated with breeding bird nesting grounds, fisheries and other wildlife habitats. The multispectral imagery utilizes 4 bands, Band 1 (red), Band 2 (green), Band 3 (blue), and Band 4 (near infrared) with a resolution of 1 foot and will be used to evaluate damage to coastal wetlands and their associated resource environments.
