Within this map you can view highlighted layers from the British Columbia ShoreZone dataset. ShoreZone is a mapping system used to inventory the biological and geomorphological attributes of the shoreline. The results are used for coastal planning, identification of vulnerable resources, oil spill response planning, habitat modelling and scientific research.
Within this map you can view a variety of oceanographic data in an animated format. Data included is: temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, nutrients and Secchi Disk depth readings. Citizen scientists collected data for the Strait of Georgia as part of the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project.
This map shows oceanographic data (temperature, salinity, chlorophyll, oxygen saturation) for the Strait of Georgia collected by citizen scientists as part of the Salish Sea Marine Survival Program between 2015 & 2017. Values are the average of data collected across 0 to 30 meters depth.
Nearshore habitats, such as eelgrass and kelp, provide important sanctuary for juvenile salmon before they venture into open ocean. This map shows a number of nearshore habitat research and restoration projects undertaken between 2014 and 2017 as part of the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project.
