The data set includes delineation of sampling strata for the six study reaches of the UMRR Program’s LTRM element. Separate strata coverages exist for each of the three monitoring components (fish, vegetation, and water quality) to meet the differing sampling needs among components. Generally, the sampling strata consist of main channel, side channel, backwater, and impounded areas. The fish component further delineates a “shoreline” portion of the strata to be used for sampling gears deployed only along the shoreline. The data are raster in origin, with the center of each pixel representing the sampling location. Cell size is typically 50 meters, although several water quality strata are at 200 meter cell size.

Separate data for floodplain elevation and bathymetry were collected on the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS) by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Upper Mississippi River Restoration (UMRR) Program. While many information needs can be met by using these data separately, in many cases seamless elevation data across the river and its floodplain are needed. This seamless elevation surface was generated by merging lidar (i.e., floodplain elevation) and bathymetry data. Merging the data required special processing in the areas of transition between the two sources of data.

This Python script creates a shapefile containing features that are deltas. Data inputs: LCU data for 1989, 2000, and 2010 for Pools 3 through 13 (https://doi.org/10.5066/F77M0771, F73X85X2, F77942QN); Aquatic Area Level 2 data for Pools 3 through 13 (http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7VD6WH8). Pre-script procedures: Setup a tool in an ArcMap toolbox to call the script. Change directory names as needed in script. Intersect the three LCU datasets for all pools. Critical processing steps of script: 1. Remap attributes into three LCU classes (0 = Salix and Wm, 1=land, 2=water). 2. Remap attributes into three change classes (0 = no change - terrestrial, 2 = no change - aquatic, 3 = change from aquatic to terrestrial)....

The Finger Lakes Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project(HREP) is intended to improve winter habitat conditions for fish in a series of interconnected backwater lakes of the Mississippi River near Alma, Wisconsin. Winter habitat requirements (temperature, flow velocity, and dissolved oxygen) for the target fish population in the Finger Lakes have been defined and limnologcal efforts have been aimed at quantifying the spatial-temporal patterns and interrelationships among water movement, oxygen, and temperature. The progress to date (pre-construction) has included detailed investigations into (1) system hydrology (including dye-tracer studies), (2) oxygen supply and depletion, (3) temperature regime, (4) aquatic...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
