Coastal Biodiversity Monitoring

Arctic coastal ecosystems include those areas within the Arctic region where fjords, glaciers, rocky coasts, coastal wetlands, estuaries, rivers, lakes, and coastal ocean ecosystems meet and interact in complex ways that significantly influence their composition, structure, function, and their capacity to support a wide spectrum of the Arctic coastal biodiversity. These Arctic coastal ecosystems are the focus of the Coastal Monitoring Plan.
