Summary

Understanding how sea-level rise will affect coastal landforms and the species and habitats they support is critical for crafting approaches that balance the needs of humans and native species. Given this increasing need to forecast sea-level rise effects on barrier islands in the near and long terms, we are developing Bayesian networks to evaluate and to forecast the cascading effects of sea-level rise on shoreline change, barrier island state, and piping plover habitat availability. We use publicly available data products, such as lidar, orthophotography, and geomorphic feature sets derived from those, to extract metrics of barrier island characteristics at consistent sampling distances. The metrics are then incorporated into predictive [...]

Purpose

These categorical raster files map 2011 substrate and vegetation characteristics in 5-m cells. The supervised classification raster (Rock11_SupClas.tif) depicts landcover attributes (for example, marsh, sand, water, herbaceous vegetation). It was created with a supervised classification of 2011 aerial imagery. Raster files Rock11_SubType.tif, Rock11_VegDen.tif, Rock11_VegType.tif were reclassified from the supervised classification raster with some manual modifications. Rock11_SubType.tif maps discrete substrate types; Rock11_VegDen.tif maps discrete categories of vegetation density; Rock11_VegType.tif maps discrete vegetation types. Raster file Rock11_GeoSet.tif maps discrete geomorphic settings (e.g. beach, dunes, washovers) and was digitized manually with reference to source datasets. Information contained in these spatial datasets was used within a Bayesian network to model the probability that a specific set of landscape characteristics would be associated with piping plover habitat (Zeigler and others 2019).
