The Development Process and Methods for the Coastal Georgia Report Card
This companion document to the 2020 Coastal Georgia report card contains information about data sources for all indicators, a summary of analysis methods, and scoring details. The values and threats to Coastal Georgia were revisited and indicator importance and relevance were reviewed. This led to the addition of three new indicators: dissolved oxygen, bald eagles, and spotted seatrout. The two indicators covering right whales (population and calves) were removed from the report card scoring.
