Description:
Abstract:
This data set contains the locations of freshwater ponds that are present on Assateague Island National Seashore.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to depict locations of freshwater ponds on Assateague Island National Seashore for wildlife management and general mapping. The amount of freshwater on the island is finite, therefore monitoring the condition of these ponds becomes crucial because of the large amount of species that depend on them for survival.
Supplemental_Information:
Ponds are categorized by the kilometer posts (transects) that are directly south of the ponds location.
