Estuarine and Coastal Habitats Technical Reports

The Estuarine and Coastal Habitats Technical Reports are a collaboration between the Marine Resources Division of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control's Bureau of Water that serve to provide periodic updated information on the condition of South Carolina’s estuarine habitats. The goal of the South Carolina Estuarine and Coastal Assessment Program (SCECAP) is to monitor the condition of the state’s estuarine habitats to determine the proportion of the coastal zone that meets desired criteria with respect to water quality, sediment quality, and biotic condition.

    The Condition of South Carolina's Estuarine and Coastal Habitats During 2009-2010: Technical Report No. 107
    (South Carolina State Library, 2013) Van Dolah, Robert F.; Sanger, D. M.; Riekerk, G. H. M.; Crowe, S. E.; Levisen, M. V.; Bergquist, D. C.; Chestnut, D. E.; McDermott, W.; Fulton, M.

    This technical report is one of a series planned to provide periodic updated information on the condition of South Carolina’s estuarine habitats. The data highlight the value of evaluating tidal creek habitats separately from larger open water bodies due to significant differences noted in many of the parameters measured. The report also includes newly developed integrated measures of water quality, sediment quality and biological condition to better evaluate overall habitat condition at each site and for the estuarine and coastal waters of the whole state.
