Land Area

Water Area

Land area is a measurement providing the size, in square miles, of the land portions of geographic entities for which the Census Bureau tabulates and disseminates data. Area is calculated from the specific boundary recorded for each entity in the Census Bureau's geographic database. Land area is based on current information in the TIGER® data base, calculated for use with Census 2010.

Water Area figures include inland, coastal, Great Lakes, and territorial sea water. Inland water consists of any lake, reservoir, pond, or similar body of water that is recorded in the Census Bureau's geographic database. It also includes any river, creek, canal, stream, or similar feature that is recorded in that database as a two- dimensional feature (rather than as a single line). The portions of the oceans and related large embayments (such as Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound), the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea that belong to the United States and its territories are classified as coastal and territorial waters; the Great Lakes are treated as a separate water entity. Rivers and bays that empty into these bodies of water are treated as inland water from the point beyond which they are narrower than 1 nautical mile across. Identification of land and inland, coastal, territorial, and Great Lakes waters is for data presentation purposes only and does not necessarily reflect their legal definitions.

    Educational Attainment of Washington Population by Age, Race/Ethnicity/, and PUMA Region

    data.wa.gov | Last Updated 2019-05-16T19:13:48.000Z

    The American Community Survey (ACS) is designed to estimate the characteristic distribution of populations* and estimated counts should only be used to calculate percentages. They do not represent the actual population counts or totals. Beginning in 2019, the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) has measured educational attainment for the Roadmap Progress Report using one-year American Community Survey (ACS) data from the United States Census Bureau. These public microdata represents the most current data, but it is limited to areas with larger populations leading to some multi-county regions**. *The American Community Survey is not the official source of population counts. It is designed to show the characteristics of the nation's population and should not be used as actual population counts or housing totals for the nation, states or counties. The official population count — including population by age, sex, race and Hispanic origin — comes from the once-a-decade census, supplemented by annual population estimates (which do not typically contain educational attainment variables) from the following groups and surveys: -- Washington State Office of Financial Management (OFM): https://www.ofm.wa.gov/washington-data-research/population-demographics -- US Census Decennial Census: https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/decennial-census.html and Population Estimates Program: https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/popest.html **In prior years, WSAC used both the five-year and three-year (now discontinued) data. While the 5-year estimates provide a larger sample, they are not recommended for year to year trends and also are released later than the one-year files.

    AFSC/ABL: Autonomous underwater vehicle for tracking acoustically-tagged fish 2010

    noaa-fisheries-afsc.data.socrata.com | Last Updated 2017-09-19T04:37:47.000Z

    Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are increasingly being used to collect physical, chemical, and biological information in the marine environment. Recent efforts have been made to merge AUV technology with acoustic telemetry to provide information on the distribution and movements of marine fish. During 2010, we conducted a study in coastal waters near Juneau, Alaska to determine the feasibility of using AUVs to locate marine species under rigorous field conditions, and to compare this approach with traditional vessel-based tracking. Tracking surveys were conducted with a REMUS 100 AUV equipped with an integrated acoustic receiver and hydrophone. The AUV was programmed to navigate along predetermined routes to detect acoustic transmitters within the area. Comparable surveys were conducted with a boat equipped with acoustic tracking gear. Moorings with transmitters at 20-500 m were deployed to provide acoustic targets at known locations and depths. Marine fishes and crabs were tagged to provide mobile targets. Transmitter depth had a major impact on tracking performance. The AUV was equally effective or better detecting reference transmitters in shallow water, and significantly better than the boat for transmitters at deeper depths. Similar results were observed for the tagged animals. Crabs at moderate depths were recorded by both tracking methods, while only the AUV detected fish at depths exceeding 500 m. The AUV periodically had difficulty navigating and maintaining course due to the strong currents and extreme depths in the area. AUVs with greater cruising speeds, increased operating depths, and improved navigation would enhance AUV performance in marine environments.

    AFSC/ABL: Blackspotted and rougheye rockfish genetics and age data from RACE trawl surveys

    noaa-fisheries-afsc.data.socrata.com | Last Updated 2017-09-19T04:58:21.000Z

    This data set contains field and genetic identification of rougheye (Sebastes aleutianus) and blackspotted (Sebastes melanostictus) rockfish collected during AFSC bottom trawl surveys. There is considerable difficulty in correctly distinquishing between these species of rockfish in the field. The database contains the field identification of each specimen, genetic identification (true species identification) along with biological information for each specimen including weight, length, and age. Also included is the location and water depth where each specimen was collected.

    AFSC/ABL: Sockeye salmon allozyme baseline - 1982-1990

    noaa-fisheries-afsc.data.socrata.com | Last Updated 2017-09-19T04:57:07.000Z

    Genetic data were collected and prepared with the use of protein electrophoresis from 52 spawning locations in southeastern Alaska and northern British Columbia. Genetic relationships were examined from principal components analysis and unrooted trees constructed from genetic distances between collections. These descriptive analyses suggest a geographic basis to genetic divergence among populations. This geographic basis was confirmed using log-likelihood-ratio analysis and analyses of variance. Three groups of populations were observed: one from systems that drain into the inside waters of northern and central southeast Alaska; another from the far southeastern islands (including Prince of Wales Island); and the third in systems of the southern inside waters. Although the geographic structure was a statistically significant component of the overall genetic structure, gene diversity analysis indicates that only about 4.7% of the total genetic variability was attributable to genetic differences among those regions, whereas about 8.4% of the total was due to differences among populations within each region. The other 87.0% of the variation occurred, on average, within each collection.

These data include catch per unit effort for each commercially important crab species at a standard set of stations in the eastern Bering Sea. This is a subset of the main database. Excluded are certain non standard tows and other types of data collected other than species id, species size category, species catch per unit effort (number per square nautical mile), water temperature and depth.

    AFSC/ABL: Marine Debris Surveys in Alaska, 1972-2015

    noaa-fisheries-afsc.data.socrata.com | Last Updated 2017-09-19T05:03:14.000Z

    Scientists at the Auke Bay Laboratory have conducted marine debris surveys on select beaches in Alaska periodically since 1972. Some of the beaches previously sampled have been identified as marine debris hot spots due to their increased debris accumulation. At each location, multiple 1 km beach segments were sampled by people walking the beach and enumerating all anthropogenic marine debris found. The beach area surveyed was from the waters edge up to the base of the storm berm or log piles. Individual beach segments have been walked multiple times in the since 1972 allowing for a direct comparison with prior years. Sampling occurred in late spring and summer to test the hypothesis of change in marine debris sources due to increased summer boat traffic and the diminished occurrence and severity of storms.
