Introduction

Maine Environmental Vulnerability Index Maps

This series of maps depicts environmental resources along the coast of Maine most at risk from oil spilled into the marine or estuarine environment. The maps show biological, geological and human resources. It is important to note that these maps are not an exhaustive inventory of marine and estuarine species, but are a survey meant to give first responders a tool for prioritizing and targeting protection strategies.
