Project Title & Description
NCA 05-06: Design and Survey Indicators for Assessing Health and Condition of New Jersey Bays
The National Coastal Assessment (NCA) is a comprehensive and integrated program to assess condition of the nation's estuaries. Implementation of 2-year state-specific surveys will build the states' capacity to conduct assessments of their coastal waters and will contribute to a national assessment of coastal waters. This project will assess the conditions of the state's coastal waters over a 2-year period using survey designs, methods, quality assurance, and data analysis tools developed by NCA.
