Total existing area and projected area of primary waterbird habitat in the Central Valley of California for 17 climate, urbanization, and water management scenarios
The dataset summarizes total area (km2) and proportion of Central Valley waterbird habitat, summed across individual waterbird habitats (i.e., wetland and cropland types), that was available for each of 17 projected scenarios. The dataset also includes relatively recent (year 2005) area of existing habitat (i.e., “existing area”) for comparison with areas based on scenarios. Analysis was conducted for the projection period including water-years 2006–2099 (water-year defined as October-December and January–September of the following year). Because habitat areas vary through the season with timing of crop harvest and flooding of wetlands and post-harvested fields, annual areas and proportions represent summation...
Existing and projected “worst-year” areas of available primary waterbird habitat in the Central Valley of California for 17 climate, urbanization, and water management scenarios
The dataset summarizes areas of Central Valley wetland and cropland waterbird habitats available for each of 17 projected scenarios by each month (August–December and following January–March). The dataset also includes relatively recent (year 2005) area of existing habitat (i.e., “existing area”) for comparison with habitat areas based on scenarios. Cropland habitats are defined as winter-flooded rice, unplowed dry rice, winter-flooded corn, unplowed dry corn, and other winter-flooded cropland (in Tulare basin). Wetlands are defined as summer-irrigated seasonal wetland, seasonal wetland that is not summer-irrigated, and semipermanent wetland (combines semipermanent and permanent wetland types). Thus, data on availability...
