Summary

Within large-river ecosystems, floodplains serve a variety of important ecological functions. A recent survey of 80 managers of floodplain conservation lands along the Upper and Middle Mississippi and Lower Missouri Rivers in the central United States found that the most critical information needed to improve floodplain management centered on metrics for characterizing depth, extent, frequency, duration, and timing of inundation. These metrics can be delivered to managers efficiently through cloud-based interactive maps. To calculate these metrics, we interpolated an existing one-dimensional HEC-RAS hydraulic model for the Lower Missouri River, which simulated water surface elevations at cross sections spaced (<1 kilometer) to sufficiently [...]

Purpose

This dataset was developed to quantify timing, extent, depth, and duration of inundation for floodplains on the Missouri River, and to assess relative potential for ecological restoration with a variety of biological endpoints. We developed a suite of metrics which characterize inundation timing and extent that will be useful to floodplain managers in for planning restoration efforts. We developed these layers to quantify inundation metrics under a possible climate change scenario generated from CMIP3 and CMIP5 models, which we used to calculate offsets from the baseline scenario for USGS gauges within the model domain.
