A GIS Approach To Habitat Restoration Site Selection
and Prioritization in the New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary

Kelly Kunert, Master's thesis, Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences, Duke University, 2005


About this Publication
The New York - New Jersey Harbor Estuary Study Area

Restoring the degraded habitat of NY/NJ Harbor is important to ensure that the harbor can continue to be used as an economic, recreational, and ecological resource.

The NY/NJ Harbor & Estuary Program has been working with government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the public since 1996 to protect and restore
habitat.

This paper discusses the measures presently being taken by the New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program to restore habitat in the harbor and explores a method to improve the scientific rigor of current restoration site selection efforts using a geographic information system (GIS).
