1177.2 Estuarine Health Assessment - Experiment - Published 27 Mar 2015
CAMRIS incorporates the Australian estuarine database, which includes the National Estuaries Study (Bucher and Saenger 1989, http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1467-8470.1991.tb00726.x). Attributes include ... morelocation, name, climatic variables, run-off coefficients, land use, flood frequency, water quality, habitat types including seagrass/mangrove/saltmarsh, fisheries/conservation/amenity values, administration, literature and threats.
Absolute External Positional Accuracy: Assumed to be correct. +/- one degree.
Non Quantitative accuracy: The estuaries coverage contains 1566 points and the following attributes:
ESTUARY_NO : Inventory number, contains a letter prefix to denote State in which estuary lies. Estuaries are numbered clockwise around the continent.
NAME : Name of major input stream used to identify an estuary unless the estuary itself is named.
GEO_ZONE : Set of 12 coastal geographical zones (ACIUCN 1986).
CLIM_ZONE : Set of 3 named climatic zones.
CATCH_AREA : Catchment Area (sq km).
AVE_ANN_RF : Mean annual rainfall (mm), recorded at station nearest estuary.
RUNOFF_COEF : Runoff figure, best approximation to a catchment average rainfall, usually the average value for the respective drainage basin.
MAX_TIDAL_RANGE : Maximum tidal range (m).
WATER_AREA : Water area (sq km).
SAND-MUD_AREA : Sand and Mud Area (sq km).
MANGROVE_AREA : Area of Mangroves (sq km).
SEAGRASS_AREA : Area of Seagrass (sq km).
SALTMARSH_AREA : Area of Saltmarsh (sq km).
ESTUARINE_AREA : Est area of estuary (sq km).
GALLOWAY_SECTION : Galloway section number - each 3x10km strip is numbered, clockwise around the coast.
LONGITUDE : Longitude of estuary site (dd).
LATITUDE : Latitude of estuary site (dd).
LANDUSE_CODE : % catchment clearance.
FLOOD_REGIME : Frequency of flooding.
WATER-QUAL : Subjective assessment of water quality only.
MANGROVE_COVER : Degree Mangrove cover.
SEAGRASS_COVER : Degree Seagrass cover.
SALTMARSH_COVER : Degree Saltmarsh cover.
FISH_VALUE : Importance of an estuary as a commercial or amateur fishing ground.
FISH_THREAT : Threats to fisheries.
CONS_VALUE : Qualitative conservation values.
CONS_THREAT : Threats to conservation.
AMENITY_VALUE : Amenities value.
ECO_STATUS : Effects of human activity.
RESEARCH : Depth of information used to assess estuary.
ADMIN : Statutory classifications that restricts use.
Conceptual consistency: Coverages are topologically consistent. No particular tests conducted by ERIN.
Completeness omission: Complete for the Australian continent.less
