This online guide is an adaptation of our Field Guide to the Rare Plants of Washington, which was published in with the intent to aid amateur and professional botanists in the identification of our state's rare plant species. With the inclusion of descriptions from an earlier version of the guide, this online source now includes vascular plants, 16 mosses and one.

Turnagain Arm, just east of Anchorage, provides a readily accessible, world-class cross section through a Mesozoic accretionary wedge. Nearly continuous exposures along the Seward Highway, the Alaska Railroad, and the shoreline of Turnagain Arm display the two main constituent units of the Chugach terrane: the McHugh Complex and Valdez Group. Add historical and modern vector shorelines. Historic and modern shorelines can be used as a basis for determining shoreline change rates. It is helpful when determining long-term shoreline change to have sequential historic shorelines dating as far back as yrs to the most recent available shoreline.

Work is currently underway on a guide specific to the selection and use of techniques in cold regions. These techniques are described in greater detail in a Field Guide for Documentation and Description of Oiled Shorelines [7]. Shoreline assessment procedures, known as the Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT) (see Figure ), have been developed that use standard terms and definitions to systematically survey and document the character of an oiled shoreline and of the oil that has been stranded.

2 This technique is widely used and has been adapted to rivers. Shoreline Cleanup and Assessment Technique (SCAT): Here is an overview of SCAT, a simple and comprehensive way to perform a survey of an oiled shoreline.

Shoreline Assessment Job Aid: This job aid was developed for use in the field and to supplement the manual, providing a visual guide to many of the terms used and conditions found during shoreline.

Description. This publication is part of the IPIECA-IOGP Good Practice Guide Series which summarizes current views on good practice for a range of oil spill preparedness and response topics. The series aims to help align industry practices and activities, inform stakeholders, and serve as a communication tool to promote awareness and education.

The book is spiral-bound and quite hefty, so it’s more of a desk reference than an actual field guide. Some of the plant family classifications are out of date, but the general botany photos are still applicable, as is the bulk of the plant family photographs and descriptions.

The oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico was documented by shoreline assessment teams as stranding on 1, km of shoreline.

Beaches comprised %, marshes %, and other shoreline types % of the oiled shoreline. Shoreline cleanup activities were authorized on km, or % of oiled beaches and up to 71 km, or % of oiled.

Oil spills is the biggest cause of marine pollution. An oil spill can devastate and area of the ocean. Factories are another major cause of marine pollution.

Establishing a Shoreline Assessment Program ESTABLISHING A SHORELINE ASSESSMENT PROGRAM. The purpose of a SCAT Program is to: Systematically survey and document the area affected by oil to provide rapid and accurate geographic descriptions of the shoreline oiling conditions and real-time issues or clean up constraints.

This book is at times subtlety humorous and sentimental (as far as a field guide may be), which makes the excursion into the subject matter that much more enjoyable. Nonetheless, the information contained within is adequately researched and presented in a succinct s: 8.
