  • Description:
    In this paper ballast water data is summarized and analyzed in order to identify regions that pose particularly high risk threats of introducing an invasive species to the Northeastern United States. Certain species have drawn considerable global attention because of their introductions to and subsequent detrimental effects on local economies. By superimposing the known locations of establishment for these species with localized ballast water data, we can better understand the risk level that these species pose.
