Protocols and/or Procedures

The density of giant kelp > 1 m tall is recorded in four contiguous 20 m x 1m swaths that run parallel and adjacent to each 40 m transect. Each transect has 2 sides. Kelp data is recorded on both sides of the transect tape (inshore and offshore) in two twenty-meter-long sections (0-20 meters and 21-40 meters) for each transect, resulting in selected sections for each transect.
