Substrate properties for invertebrate comparisons in Bellingham Bay, Washington, July 2019 and July-August 2020

Sediment grain-size distributions and total organic carbon contents were measured at four intertidal sites and three subtidal sites along the urban waterfront (east shore) of Bellingham Bay, Washington, July 3-11, 2019 and June 6-August 31, 2020. Intertidal substrate was sampled in eelgrass beds, and subtidal substrate was sampled inside and outside of the deep edge of eelgrass beds.
