Channel Islands, Kelp Forest Monitoring, Survey, Random Point Contact, 1982-2007

This dataset from the Channel Islands National Park's Kelp Forest Monitoring Program has estimates of substrate composition and percent cover of selected algal and invertebrate taxa. The data summary data presented here represents the mean percent cover of the indicator species at the site. Sampling is conducted annually between the months of May-October, so the Time data in this file is July 1 of each year (a nominal value). The actual measurements were taken at various depths, so the Depth data in this file is the depth of the station's temperature logger, which is a typical depth.
