The City of Kentwood (MI) has been faced with repetitive flooding from Plaster Creek near the intersection of Shaffer Avenue SE and 36th Street SE. Nearby businesses and public and private property are at risk for flood damage; as well as degradation of public infrastructure including bridges, exposure of subsurface sanitary sewer lines, and damage to storm water systems. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, would like to develop a management plan through the use of a hydraulic model of the impacted river reaches. To support this effort, topographic and bathymetric surveys of Plaster Creek, Little Plaster Creek, and associated bridges and structures are needed. During the summer of 2018, the U.S....

This map shows the impacts of human activity on stream ecology. Layers include: Chinook salmon habitat and future roads in the CYR study area; Chum salmon habitat and future roads in the CYR study area; Inconnu habitat and future roads in the CYR study area; Dolly Varden habitat and future roads in the CYR study area; Chinook salmon habitat and mineral potential in the CYR study area; Chum salmon habitat and mineral potential in the CYR study area; Inconnu habitat and mineral potential in the CYR study area; Dolly Varden habitat and mineral potential in the CYR study area. These data are provided by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "as is" and may contain errors or omissions. The User assumes the entire risk associated...
Human intervention in the hydrologic basin of the Colorado River has eliminated water discharge and sediment supply to the river's mouth and its delta. After not, vert, similar95 years of applying strong flow control policies, the previous sedimentary budget in the delta has changed, the delta now being entirely exposed to the hydrodynamic forces in its basin. In order to assess the anthropogenic impact of water diversion on deltaic sedimentary processes and short-term delta geomorphic evolution, textural and mineralogical analyses were performed on 68 sediment samples collected from the river, estuary, beach, continental shelf, delta plain and desert. The results show a consistent NE to SW textural gradient on...

The City of Kentwood (MI) has been faced with repetitive flooding from Plaster Creek near the intersection of Shaffer Avenue SE and 36th Street SE. Nearby businesses and public and private property are at risk for flood damage; as well as degradation of public infrastructure including bridges, exposure of subsurface sanitary sewer lines, and damage to storm water systems. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, would like to develop a management plan through the use of a hydraulic model of the impacted river reaches. To support this effort, photographs of debris jams within Plaster Creek, Little Plaster Creek were collected during the summer of 2018. A companion shapefile is provided to show the approximate...

Environments dominated by human disturbance such as roads, cities, and the constructed materials that support human habitation have profound effects on species. For most species, this data layer was used to exclude species from a portion of the landscape. However, some species respond favorably to human habitats, therefore this data layer was used in an inclusionary manner. The human impact avoidance dataset describes high exclusion/high inclusion proximity to urban environments, and roads. This dataset was derived from US Census TIGER/Line files and GAP’s National Land Cover Database developed by USGS, in particular the impervious dataset. These data are divided into 6 regions across the US (Northwest, Southwest,...

Raster data depicting estimated jaguar energy expenditure required to move north from the US-Mexico border to reach important water sources. The data were generated for five scenarios: walled, un-walled crossing and three remediation scenarios: a border crossing through the wall in rugged terrain towards the west end of the wall, a crossing in a dry wash centrally located, one in less rugged terrain east of both.
