Summary

Species occurrence records of the taxonomic class of Bivalvia in oceans within 1000 kilometers of the United States shoreline. This is a subset of the OBIS-USA dataset where Bivalvia records were queried on December 2, 2014. After initial queries, the remaining data were further queried to retain only samples within 1000 kilometers of the U.S. shoreline. Spatial queries were then used to remove samples overlaying land masses. Data are provided in a geodatabase format, as well as a comma seperated values format. OBIS-USA provides aggregated, interoperable biogeographic data collected primarily from U.S. waters and oceanic regions--the Arctic, the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and the Great Lakes.

Purpose

This subset of OBIS-USA was queried to help partners of the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP) visualize and access available Bivalve data through the NFHP Data System. OBIS-USA is a national program being led by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with other Federal agencies including NOAA/IOOS, BOEM, NODC, and U.S. Navy. OBIS-USA is the U.S. regional node of the International Ocean Biogeographic Information System (iOBIS). International OBIS is a global system comprised of a series of regional and thematic nodes that collaborate to provide access to marine biogeographic data. They follow international data standards and operational protocols to facilitate access to and interoperability of data. Scientists, resource managers, and policy makers can use OBIS-USA data to understand species and ecosystems as well as to monitor, evaluate, and forecast change in our oceans.
