To improve the understanding of coastal uplands and wetlands, and their linkages with the distribution, abundance, and health of living marine resources.
The Department of Ecology created the Wetlands Inventory by extracting the wetlands land cover classifications from the overall land cover layer. The following classifications were extracted for the Wetlands Inventory:
Estuarine Aquatic Bed
Estuarine Emergent Wetland
Estuarine Forested Wetland
Estuarine Scrub/Shrub Wetland
Palustrine Aquatic Bed
Palustrine Emergent Wetland
Palustrine Forested Wetland
Palustrine Scrub/Shrub Wetland
Potentially Disturbed Wetlands
The 1992 classification is a combination of the 1996 land cover classification that had not changed between 1992 and 1996, and a classifiation of the changed areas based on 1996 Landsat TM imagery. The Landsat TM imagery was collected from 7/7/1991 to 8/21/1996.
