Marbled Murrelet Nesting Habitat Suitability Model for the British Columbia Coast. This data is an aggregate of predicted suitable habitat from a wide scale algorithm using elevation, distance inland, forest cover tree height and age as well as two separate regional nesting habitat models. It is a temporal snapshot
