McBride, A., S. Todd, O. Odum, M. Koschak, E. Beamer. 2009. Developing a geomorphic model for nearshore habitat mapping and analysis. Skagit River System Cooperative and others, La Conner, Washington.

Abstract (Closed to Editing)

"We classify things—name them and break them down into parts—to transform an infinitely complex universe into understandable, organized bits. Classifying the complex helps us focus the lens so that the essence we are trying to understand stands out clearly amidst the background clutter. This means that classification systems are needspecific—the object of focus determines what the classification system looks like. The Skagit River System Cooperative (SRSC) needed a classification system for Puget Sound shorelines to help understand salmon ecology in the nearshore to recover ESA listed salmon. In the hopes of developing hypotheses about how to sustainably restore nearshore salmon habitats that have been impacted by human activities(Figure 1a and b) we created a classification system for the Puget Sound nearshore based on landscape processes acting at a small scale, herein referred to as the McBride Model."


  • The McBride model was developed contemporaneously with Shipman 2008 and provides a finer division among embayment types than does Shipman, consitent with its focus on salmon utilization.Pcereghino (talk) 14:35, 23 April 2013 (PDT)
