Lake Ontario Canadian Baseline Coastal Habitat Survey

Lake Ontario Canadian Baseline Coastal Habitat Survey Habitat and ecosystem data used to conduct a baseline survey of coastal habitat in Lake Ontario, Niagara River and the St. Lawrence River (up to the Quebec border) are included in this dataset. The Lake Ontario Survey methodology consists of four general steps; 1) delineating the coastal ecosystem into coastal units based on water flow, ecology, and geology; 2) selecting key habitat types including wetlands, uplands (natural and anthropogenic), tributaries, and inland lakes and ponds, and the measures to assess each habitat type and the entire coastal ecosystem; 3) conducting a spatial analysis and summarizing results; and 4) sharing results. 2022-04-14 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentHabitatsSurveysEcosystemsBiological diversityGreat LakeswetlandsenvironmenthabitatsurveymonitoringecosystemwaterLake OntarioLake ErieLake HuronLake SuperiorOntariobaselinecoastaluplandstributariesprotectionrestorationshorelinebiodiversity View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/sites/scientificknowledge/canadian-great-lakes-baseline-coastal-habitat-survey/lake-ontario-canadian-baseline-coastal-habitat-survey/en/?lang=en View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/sites/scientificknowledge/canadian-great-lakes-baseline-coastal-habitat-survey/lake-ontario-canadian-baseline-coastal-habitat-survey/fr/?lang=fr
