dc.description.abstractIn January 2013, Waikato Regional Council (WRC) contracted the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), to develop rapid assessment techniques for mapping of intertidal habitats associated with the provision of ecosystem goods and services. Ecosystem goods and services are defined as ‘the direct and indirect benefits that humankind receives or values from natural or semi-natural habitats’ and include the provision of food and raw materials, waste treatment, processing and storage, disturbance prevention, sediment retention, water filtration and regulation, nutrient regulation, gas and climate regulation, habitat structure and cultural services such as spiritual heritage and leisure and recreation (Townsend et al. 2010). Assessment techniques were to be trialled and implemented for the intertidal area of the Tairua estuary with the view of providing: • Descriptions of habitat types that may be linked to levels of ecosystem goods and services. • Descriptions of the techniques involved in differentiating and mapping habitats, and an analysis of the precision and accuracy/validity of the methods. This report documents the evolution of the methodology and a proof of concept using Tairua estuary as a test case to build a habitat map. The goal is to generate precursor maps that will facilitate the mapping of ecosystem goods and services in the near future.
