The closest thing for its marine and nearshore environments may be Dr. Megan Dethier’s resource A Marine and Estuarine Habitat Classification System for Washington State. Much of the work for that document was done in the general vicinity of Puget Sound, and it has been an influential resource for major habitat mapping efforts in the region, such as Shorezone.

    Field data discussed above were used to populate and evaluate several levels of the CMECS classification system (), which, as discussed in the Introduction, uses landform structure and biophysical characteristics to categorize habitats within six nested levels (Madden et al., ).The highest classification level has five ‘regimes’: estuarine, freshwater influenced, nearshore marine Cited by: Her first love is rocky shores, but she now also works in mud, gravel, and salt marsh habitats. She designed a marine habitat classification system for Washington state, and has worked with the National Park Service and various Washington agencies designing shoreline .

This system builds on the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's National Wetland Inventory system (Cowardin et al., ), with modifications relevant to marine and estuarine communities. The following classification levels were delineated: System, Subsystem. Marine and Estuarine Habitat Classification System for Washington State (Dethier, ). Since the classification system does not have an integrated mapping methodology, the inventory in the Whatcom County area was a pilot effort to produce a synoptic digital coverage.

This document presents a classification system designed to identify and describe marine and estuarine natural communities in Washington State, covering the full array of nearshore habitat types. Its primary purposes are to: I Serve as a framework for existing data and future inventory work on the status and distribution of.

A classification system for marine and estuarine habitat types in Washington State is described. It builds on the National Wetland Inventory scheme of Cowardin, but (1) adds an “Energy” level in the hierarchy to incorporate the critical importance of waves and currents in structuring marine communities; and (2).

Habitats introduction from Dethier (): "The following habitat descriptions list plants and animals characteristic of the marine and estuarine habitats classified in the Washington Natural Heritage Program system.

Habitat types are lumped where ecological differences among them are unclear (e.g., between some mud and mixed-fine habitats).

[Megan Nichols Dethier; Linda M Kunze; Washington (State). Department of Natural Resources.]. This white paper addresses the impact of marine and estuarine shoreline modifications on naturally functioning fish and shellfish habitat in Washington State.

"Nearshore" marine habitats within Washington State span a continuum from upland to subtidal areas, and are defined to encompass the zone wherein direct functional interactions (e.g., sediment supply, primary production and export).

SHORELINE CHARACTERISTICS Physical attributes in intertidal areas were characterized according to A Marine and Estuarine Habitat Classification System for Washington State (Dethier, ). RCO guidance suggests categorizing habitat types according to a system being utilized by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.

This system includes four major categories of habitat; terrestrial, marine, estuarine, and freshwater. This discussion is organized by the four. Classification ofWetlands and Deepwater Habitats of the United States19 Estuarine System includes both estuaries and lagoons.

It is more strongly influenced by its association with land than is the Marine System. In terms of wave action, estuaries are generally considered to be low-energy systems (Chapman ).File Size: KB.Estuarine and nearshore marine habitats can take many forms, including eelgrass (especially Zostera marina) meadows, kelp forests, sand and mudflats, tidal marshes, river mouths and deltas, sand spits, beach and backshore areas, banks and bluffs, and marine riparian areas (Dethier ) (Figure 1).
