Description of condition index value scores for estuarine tidal marsh along and within 10 km of the GCPO LCC Gulf Coast subgeography. A series of raster calculations were used in a dichotomous decision-based framework to compile a per-pixel draft condition index value at a 10 m resolution for GCPO estuarine tidal marsh based on the number of configuration and condition endpoints met within each marsh pixel. Pixels not identified as a estuarine marsh but that were identified as having the potential to be marsh were given a score of 1, provided the pixels were not classified as developed. Potential estuarine tidal marsh pixels were derived from a combination of potential estuarine tidal marsh classes in the Landfire...

The Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks (GCPO) Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) has conducted an ecological assessment of various landscape characteristics, or endpoints, outlined in the LCC Integrated Science Agenda. This data layer addresses the forested wetland amount desired landscape endpoint for the forested wetland ecosystem in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley subgeography of the GCPO LCC. This data was created by reclassification of the 2011 National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) to pull out only the woody wetlands class (90) from the NLCD dataset.

The Mississippi River alluvial floodplain formerly held one of the largest expanses of bottomland hardwood forest in North America. It is also one of the most impeded systems on the continent, with altered hydrology from a vast network of protection levees and most naturally occurring bottomland forests long ago converted to agriculture across the majority of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley (MAV). In the MAV, forested wetland systems include alluvial bottomland hardwoods, cypress-tupelo forests, lower flatwoods and riparian forests associated with the Mississippi River. These systems support several species of conservation concern that the GCPO LCC Integrated Science Agenda (ISA) designates as representative...

We then overlaid the HUC12 watershed layer and calculated the total amount of forested wetland acreage within each watershed.

The Gulf of Mexico is estimated to contain nearly half of all U.S. salt marsh systems, which are rapidly disappearing within the Gulf States. Salt marshes are complex, dynamic, and transitional systems that provide habitat for a myriad of wildlife species, filtration that supports water quality, and natural barriers that contribute to the security of inland coastal areas. Loss of coastal wetlands and degradation of estuarine habitat along the northern Gulf of Mexico, and particularly along coastal Louisiana have been recognized as two of the primary issues influencing Gulf ecosystem integrity.Several multi-agency consortiums, including the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force, have identified conservation...
