Land Area

Water Area

Land area is a measurement providing the size, in square miles, of the land portions of geographic entities for which the Census Bureau tabulates and disseminates data. Area is calculated from the specific boundary recorded for each entity in the Census Bureau's geographic database. Land area is based on current information in the TIGER® data base, calculated for use with Census 2010.

Water Area figures include inland, coastal, Great Lakes, and territorial sea water. Inland water consists of any lake, reservoir, pond, or similar body of water that is recorded in the Census Bureau's geographic database. It also includes any river, creek, canal, stream, or similar feature that is recorded in that database as a two- dimensional feature (rather than as a single line). The portions of the oceans and related large embayments (such as Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound), the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea that belong to the United States and its territories are classified as coastal and territorial waters; the Great Lakes are treated as a separate water entity. Rivers and bays that empty into these bodies of water are treated as inland water from the point beyond which they are narrower than 1 nautical mile across. Identification of land and inland, coastal, territorial, and Great Lakes waters is for data presentation purposes only and does not necessarily reflect their legal definitions.

    Crown Land Conservation Areas / Aires de conservation sur les terres de la Couronne | Last Updated 2020-03-30T17:41:09.000Z

    This dataset is comprised of five map layers: Watercourse and Wetland Buffers - Buffer zones surrounding mapped watercourses and wetlands where forest activity is regulated on Crown land to maintain water quality and aquatic habitat. Deer Wintering Areas - Forested areas managed to provide severe winter habitat for herds of white tail deer on Crown lands. Other Habitats - Designated forested stands meeting D.N.R.’s structural and spatial criteria for “Old Forest Communities” and “Old Forest Wildlife Habitats”. Formerly Designated Deer Wintering Areas - Formerly designated Deer Wintering Areas which aerial surveys have not detected animal use in for significant time. One component of the changes to the designated “Conservation Forest” announced with the forest strategy in March, 2014. Formerly Designated Habitats - Formerly designated forested stands which met D.N.R.’s structural and spatial criteria for “Old Forest Communities” and “Old Forest Wildlife Habitats”. One component of the changes to the designated “Conservation Forest” announced with the forest strategy in March, 2014. Additional Information: Please be aware of the following: Watercourse and Wetland Buffers - Not all watercourses defined in N.B.’s legislative framework are mapped due to difficulty in delineating watercourses from colour aerial photography. Watercourse locations are generally accurate to within 10 m. Deer Wintering Areas - Deer wintering areas are identified on the basis of periodic aerial surveys and may not completely identify all forested stands being used by deer. / Cet ensemble de données comprend les cinq couches cartographiques suivantes : Zones tampons des cours d’eau et des terres humides : Zones tampons entourant les terres humides et les cours d’eau cartographiés où sont réglementées les activités forestières sur les terres de la Couronne pour préserver la qualité de l’eau et l’habitat aquatique. Aires d’hivernage du cerf de Virginie : Zones forestières aménagées sur les terres de la Couronne pour fournir aux troupeaux de cerfs de Virginie des habitats les protégeant des hivers rigoureux. Autres habitats : Peuplements forestiers désignés qui répondent aux critères structuraux et spatiaux du DER concernant les « communautés de forêt ancienne » et les « habitats fauniques de forêt ancienne ». Anciennes aires d’hivernage du cerf de Virginie : Anciennes aires d’hivernage du cerf de Virginie pour lesquelles les relevés aériens n’ont pas décelé d’utilisation animale pendant une longue période de temps. Il s’agit d’une des modifications à la forêt de conservation qui ont été annoncées au titre de la stratégie de gestion des forêts, en mars 2014. Anciens habitats : Anciens peuplements forestiers qui répondaient aux critères structuraux et spatiaux du DER concernant les « communautés de forêt ancienne » et les « habitats fauniques de forêt ancienne ».

Renseignements supplémentaires : Veuillez noter les points ci-dessous. Zones tampons des cours d’eau et des terres humides : Tous les cours d’eau définis dans le cadre législatif du Nouveau-Brunswick ne sont pas cartographiés, compte tenu de la difficulté à les délimiter à partir des photographies aériennes en couleurs. En général, l’emplacement des cours d’eau est précis à plus ou moins 10 m. Aires d’hivernage du cerf de Virginie : Les aires d’hivernage du cerf de Virginie sont définies en fonction de relevés aériens périodiques et il se peut que ces derniers n’aient pas pu déceler totalement tous les peuplements forestiers utilisés par les cerfs.

    Rockfish Recruitment and Ecosystem Assessment Survey, Catch Data | Last Updated 2020-03-12T16:08:05.000Z

    The Fisheries Ecology Division (FED, of the Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) has conducted a midwater trawl survey off central California since 1983 with the primary goal of developing pre-recruit indices for young-of-the-year (YOY) rockfish (Sebastes spp.). The survey also samples numerous other components of the epipelagic micronekton, including other YOY groundfish (such as Pacific hake, Merluccius productus, and sanddab, Citharichthys spp ), coastal pelagic fishes (such as Pacific sardine, Sardinops sagax, and northern anchovy, Engraulis mordax) and other forage species. Additional details regarding the survey methods and results are described in Ralston et al. (2015) and Sakuma et al. ( Ralston, S., J.C. Field and K.S. Sakuma. 2015. Longterm variation in a central California pelagic forage assemblage. Journal of Marine Systems 146: 26-37. Sakuma, K.M., J.C. Field, B.B. Marinovic, C.N. Carrion, N.J. Mantua and S. Ralston.

    NNDSS - Table 1B. Arboviral diseases, Jamestown Canyon virus disease to Powassan virus disease | Last Updated 2021-09-23T12:34:59.000Z

    NNDSS - TABLE 1B. Arboviral diseases, Jamestown Canyon virus disease to Powassan virus disease – 2021. In this Table, provisional cases* of notifiable diseases are displayed for United States, U.S. territories, and Non U.S. residents. Notice: Due to data processing issues at CDC, data for the following jurisdictions may be incomplete for week 7: Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, North Dakota, New Hampshire, New York City, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Note: This table contains provisional cases of national notifiable diseases from the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS). NNDSS data from the 50 states, New York City, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories are collated and published weekly on the NNDSS Data and Statistics web page ( Cases reported by state health departments to CDC for weekly publication are provisional because of the time needed to complete case follow-up. Therefore, numbers presented in later weeks may reflect changes made to these counts as additional information becomes available. The national surveillance case definitions used to define a case are available on the NNDSS web site at Information about the weekly provisional data and guides to interpreting data are available at: Footnotes: U: Unavailable — The reporting jurisdiction was unable to send the data to CDC or CDC was unable to process the data. -: No reported cases — The reporting jurisdiction did not submit any cases to CDC. N: Not reportable — The disease or condition was not reportable by law, statute, or regulation in the reporting jurisdiction. NN: Not nationally notifiable — This condition was not designated as being nationally notifiable. NP: Nationally notifiable but not published. NC: Not calculated — There is insufficient data available to support the calculation of this statistic. Cum: Cumulative year-to-date counts. Max: Maximum — Maximum case count during the previous 52 weeks. * Case counts for reporting years 2020 and 2021 are provisional and subject to change. Cases are assigned to the reporting jurisdiction submitting the case to NNDSS, if the case's country of usual residence is the U.S., a U.S. territory, unknown, or null (i.e. country not reported); otherwise, the case is assigned to the 'Non-U.S. Residents' category. Country of usual residence is currently not reported by all jurisdictions or for all conditions. For further information on interpretation of these data, see †Previous 52 week maximum and cumulative YTD are determined from periods of time when the condition was reportable in the jurisdiction (i.e., may be less than 52 weeks of data or incomplete YTD data).
