Pelagic Marine Ecounits are intended to describe the sea surface and water column. Two variables were selected to derive pelagic ecounits:1. Salinity and 2. Stratification.
Ecosections are areas with minor physiographic and macroclimatic or oceanographic variations. There are 114 ecosections in British Columbia varying from pure marine units to pure terrestrial units. Ecosections are meant to be mapped at small scales (1:250,000) for resource emphasis and area planning
Ecosection boundaries with percent protected, number of overlapping protected areas and other attributes added as a result of geoprocessing in the Protected Area System Overview (PASO) application. Protected area and park representation by ecosection provides a landscape context for natural resource planning processes such as; management plans, land use zoning, environmental risk assessment, landscape analysis, habitat supply, and management of high priority species. Ecosections are distinguished from each other by enduring characteristics such as minor physiographic and macroclimatic or oceanographic variations.

The Pacific Region ERAF provides a comprehensive approach for assessing all threats to marine ecosystems by evaluating cumulative risk from multiple activities to multiple ecosystem components for ecosystem-based management (EBM), improving upon international and national best practices in risk assessment that focus solely on single activities (e.g., ERAFs for assessing fisheries impacts) or single ecosystem-components (e.g., habitat-based risk assessments). This project applies the Level 2 Risk Assessment framework (O et al. 2015) to the Hecate Strait - Queen Charlotte Sound Glass Sponge Reefs Marine Protected Area (HS-QCS MPA) to determine the relative risk to the HS-QCS MPA ecosystem from anthropogenic activities.
This dataset contains 21 statistics (including extreme indices) of wind and waves calculated from hourly reanalysis data of historical surface winds and ocean surface waves for the Davis Strait Baffin Bay waters for the period 1979-2015 (each statistic has an annual and 12 monthly values). These data can be used for the characterization of marine surface wind and wave climate conditions, trends and variability for the Davis Strait Baffin Bay waters, for use of coastal and offshore operations/risk management (e.g., shipping). These data can be used for characterization of marine surface wind and wave climate conditions, trends and variability for the Davis Strait Baffin Bay waters, for use of coastal and offshore operations/risk management (e.g., shipping). The hourly wind and waves data may be obtained upon request from the Meteorological Service of Canada's Climate Services.
Benthic Marine Ecounits in coastal and offshore British Columbia. Benthic ecounits are intended to describe the sea bed and nearshore. Seven variables were selected to derive benthic ecounits: 1. Depth; 2.
The Ecological Land Classification (ELC) for Nova Scotia provides a hierarchical mapping of the province's forest ecosystems into ecosections, ecodistricts and ecoregions. It includes interpretation of the dominant natural disturbance regimes and potential climax forests at the ecosection level.

Georgia Strait Rupture Scenario using the 1997 Georgia Strait earthquake hypocentre and fault plane geometry from Cassidy, Rogers, & Waldhauser (2000, BSSA). These scenarios use a mapped crustal marine fault near Vancouver, but consider larger magnitude events than those that have been observed to date for that location. Maximum magnitude (7.5) is obtained from CanSHM6 for PUGET SOUND SHALLOW.
Catch, effort, location (latitude, longitude), relative abundance indices, and associated biological data from groundfish multi-species bottom trawl surveys in Queen Charlotte Sound (QCS), Hecate Strait (HS), West Coast Vancouver Island (WCVI), West Coast Haida Gwaii (WCHG) and the Strait of Georgia (SOG), British Columbia. Introduction
This is a set of long-term and coordinated surveys that together cover the continental shelf and upper slope of most of the British Columbia coast. The objectives of these surveys are to provide fishery-independent abundance indices of all demersal fish species available to bottom trawling and to collect biological samples of selected species. The surveys follow a random depth-stratified design and the sampling units are 2 km by 2 km blocks.
