Summary

This dataset, created in support of USGS Scientific Investigations Report 2020-5075, Estimates of Groundwater Discharge by Evapotranspiration, Stump Spring and Hiko Springs, Clark County, Nevada, 2016-18, represents a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index calculated for vegetated areas in the Stump Spring groundwater discharge area (GDA) and Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). Vegetated areas within the GDA are composed of phreatophytic shrubs interspersed with xeric vegetation and bare soil. The GDA was delineated by visual interpretation of 1-meter National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) aerial imagery acquired in May of 2015. The NDVI was calculated from a June 2017 WorldView 2 image resampled to 1-meter cell size [...]

Purpose

This dataset was created as part of a U.S. Geological Survey study, done in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management, to estimate annual groundwater evapotranspiration from riparian vegetation in two spring areas in southern Nevada. The intended uses of this dataset include, but are not limited to, natural resource modeling, mapping, and visualization applications.
