Soil pH measures acidity, which affects nutrient uptake by plants. The most common soil laboratory measurement of pH is the 1:1 water method. A crushed soil sample is mixed with an equal amount of water, and a measurement is made of the suspension. For each soil layer, this attribute is actually recorded as three separate values in the database. A low value and a high value indicate the range of this attribute for the soil component. A "representative" value indicates the expected value of this attribute for the component. For this soil property, only the representative value is used. A weighted average aggregation method was used to aggregate soil components within a 0-30 cm depth range.The dataset was derived...

Hydrography represents stream centerlines and off centerlines with greater than 30 hectare flow accumulation for the Northeast region.This dataset was developed as part of the Designing Sustainable Landscapes project led by Professor Kevin McGarigal of the University of Massachusetts and sponsored by the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative; for more information about the entire project see: http://www.umass.edu/landeco/research/dsl/dsl.htmlThe purpose of this dataset is to improve the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) for the Northeast region. The NHD is a national framework for assigning reach addresses to water-related entities, such as industrial discharges, drinking water supplies, fish habitat...

Soil depth (cm) affects communities primarily because shallow soils (usually on steep slopes or ridgetops) limit deep-rooted plants. A "restrictive layer" is a nearly continuous layer that has one or more physical, chemical, or thermal properties that significantly impede the movement of water and air through the soil or that restrict roots or otherwise provide an unfavorable root environment. if no restrictive layer is described in a map unit, it is represented by the ">200' depth class, This attribute is actually recorded as three separate values in the database. A low value and a high value indicate the range of this attribute for the soil component. A "representative" value indicates the expected value of this...

This dataset depicts imperviousness for the Northeastern United States. Imperviousness is the percentage of the ground surface area that is impervious to water infiltration. Development such as roads and buildings increase imperviousness, which can have large effects on both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.The dataset is derived from two sources: 1) the 2006 National Land Cover Database (NLCD 2006), percent impervious product, and 2) OpenStreetMaps (www.openstreetmap.org). The NLCD 2006 was developed by the Multi-Resolution Land Cover Consortium (MRLC), which makes available metadata for the NLCD 2006 , NLCD 2001, and other information that describes how the imperviousness product was developed (http://www.mrlc.gov/)....

This dataset was last updated 05/2016. This version was updated using DSLland Version 3.1. The update to DSLland Version 3.1 from Version 3.0 is the addition of a lakes and ponds classification.This dataset depicts the ecological integrity of locations (represented by 30 m grid cells) throughout New York State based on environmental conditions existing in approximately 2010. Ecological integrity is defined as the ability of an area (e.g., local site or landscape) to sustain important ecological functions over the long term. In particular, the functions include the long-term ability to support biodiversity and the ecosystem processes necessary to sustain biodiversity. The Index of Ecological Integrity (IEI) is expressed...

This dataset estimates the probability of road-crossing mortality to wildlife for roads throughout the Northeastern United States circa 2010. It is based on a model that relates traffic rate to wildlife mortality developed by Gibbs and Shriver (2002) for turtles and therefore the estimates are expected to be most accurate for relatively small, slow-moving wildlife species. Units are probability, 0-1 (e.g., a value of 0.25 is equivalent to an estimated 25% chance of mortality to wildlife that attempt to cross the road at that location.)Detailed documentation for the methods to derive the dataset are available from: DSL_traffic_documentation_07-2013.pdf . This dataset was developed as part of the Designing Sustainable...

Substrate mobility measures the realized mobility of the physical substrate, due to both substrate composition (i.e. sand) and exposure to forces (wind and water) that transport material. This is an important attribute of certain dynamic systems (e.g., coastal dune systems) and is given as an index of mobility (1=stable , 10=highly mobile, values 6, 7, 8, and 10 do not occur in the Northeast region). Substrate mobility was derived from a custom algorithm based on the ESMplus and National Land Cover Database (NLCD) classes and National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) polygons.
