Abstract: The National Coastal Pollutant Discharge Inventory (NCPDI) is a data base and computational framework being developed by the Strategic Assessment Branch (SAB) of the Ocean Assessments Division, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. When completed, the NCPDI will include all point, nonpoint, and riverine sources of pollutant discharges into estuarine, coastal, and oceanic waters of the contiguous USA extending landward to the head of estuaries and seaward to the boundary of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
