Service Description: This map service includes data layers being used by the South Carolina Renewable Energy Task Force in their decision making process. These data represent densities of marine bird species across the marine waters off the coast of South Carolina, as surveyed between 2008-2014. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service surveys were performed in February, March, August, and October and include wintering sea duck surveys (2008-2011), Atlantic Marine Assessment Program for Protected Species (AMAPPS) surveys (2010-2011, 2012|x2|, 2014), and a South Carolina and Georgia Coast survey (2012). Across these ten surveys, marine birds were counted along transects and grouped into various distances (in nautical miles) from the coast. Species counts were then aggregated across surveys by month and distance from coast. Densities (birds per square kilometer) were calculated by dividing the total species count by the total area surveyed for a given month and distance from the coast. NOAA provides the information “as-is” and shall incur no responsibility or liability as to the completeness or accuracy of this information. NOAA assumes no responsibility arising from the use of this information. For additional information, please contact the NOAA Office for Coastal Management (
