Summary

Geomorphometry for Streams and Floodplains in the Chesapeake and Delaware Watersheds was generated as part of the project Quantifying Floodplain Ecological Processes and Ecosystem Services in the Delaware River Watershed funded through the William Penn Foundation' Delaware Watershed Research fund. This dataset contains geomorphometry for streams and floodplains in the Chesapeake and Delaware River watersheds. Geomorphometry is a quantitative representation of landscape surface form (e.g., channel width and depth) obtained from digital elevation models (DEMs). The dataset contains geomorphometry derived from running 3-m DEMs through the Floodplain and Channel Evaluation Tool (FACET) version 0.1.0. FACET generates shapefiles and rasters [...]

Purpose

These data were generated to map stream and floodplain geomorphic characteristics within the Chesapeake and Delaware River watersheds and to inform modeling to quantify the amount of sediment and nutrients trapped on floodplains or eroded from streambanks in the Chesapeake and Delaware River watersheds. This information will enhance our understanding of the services that floodplains provide to people living in the Chesapeake and Delaware River watersheds.
