Exxon Valdez Oil Spill - Shoreline Oiling - CIK Summer 1989
The response effort from Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) provided shoreline oiling data in DXF format. These observations were based on fixed wing helicopter, and onsite records made by a limited number of trained ADEC personnel and backed by a formal ADEC documentation process. The information represents the cummulative oil impact from March 28, 1989 to the end of the month which was reported. If any portion of the shoreline was impacted by oil, that impact was carried through the following monthly reports, for example, the June impact reports covered all oil observations from March 28, 1989 through June 30, 1989. The August impact report contains all ADEC shoreline oiling observations up to the 1989 fall beachwalk survey. This coverage was integrated with the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) and Land Status and will have similar attributes to these two themes described in the ESI and Land Status KAP documentation.
