- Is not stratified
Map of Sites
This sample design started with an initial frame of 22,797 sites, based on its master sample. The criteria (based on the master sample's attributes) were then used to refine the sample frame down to 22,797 sites:
All shoreline in Puget Sound UGA boundaries.
Panel designs can help address sampling objectives by increasing the total number of samples at a lower overall cost. A common panel structure involves one or more panels with a high revisit frequency (e.g. an “Annual” panel), and other panels with a lower revisit frequency (e.g. a three year “Rotating” panel).
