Third Thursday Web Forum: The National Coastal Condition Assessment: Survey design and 2015 results

February 17, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

“The National Coastal Condition Assessment: Survey design and 2015 results” with Hugh Sullivan, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The National Coastal Condition Assessment (NCCA) is a collaborative, nationwide, statistically based survey of estuaries and nearshore waters of the Great Lakes, that uses consistent methods to assess ecological indicators of biological, sediment, eutrophication and whole fish contaminant conditions, as well as human health indicators of mercury concentrations in fish fillet tissue, and microcystin and enterococci concentrations in water.
This presentation will give a brief overview of the survey design, including the sample frame, how we work with partners to maintain high quality data, and descriptions of key indicators. In, addition, this presentation will discuss recently published results of the 2015 index period and changes in condition from previous NCCA surveys. It will conclude with a discussion of research indicators for the 2020-21 survey and updates to reporting timelines being implemented for future surveys.
