Eelgrass Biomass Model

January 29, 2024

This code release contains R and JAGS code for estimating average eelgrass biomass at two lagoons (Izembek and Kinzarof) within the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska, using data from point count surveys conducted by National Wildlife Refuge and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) personnel. Biomass is estimated using a gamma hurdle model which models the probability of occurrence and eelgrass abundance (biomass) where present as separate processes. More information about the model can be found at the links in the Associated Manuscript and Associated Data sections.
