Pine woodlands, savannas, and prairies- Acres of open canopy habitat that is regularly burned This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the pine woodland, savanna and prairies focal environment. To read more about the indicators and how they are being used, please visit the indicator page. Reason for selection This indicator represents the overall structure and condition of the habitat, is regularly monitored, and is widely used and understood by diverse partners. Target Double the acres burned on a regular basis Input Data Data from the LANDFIRE program <http://www.landfire.gov/> were used to quantify fire distribution. LANDFIRE is a cooperative project from The Nature Conservancy, USDA Forest...

This EnviroAtlas web service supports research and online mapping activities related to EnviroAtlas (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas). The Clean and Plentiful Water category in this web service includes layers illustrating the ecosystems and natural resources that filter and regulate water, the need or demand for clean and plentiful water, the impacts associated with water quality, and factors that place stress on water quality and supply. EnviroAtlas allows the user to interact with a web-based, easy-to-use, mapping application to view and analyze multiple ecosystem services for the conterminous United States. Additional descriptive information about each attribute in this web service is located within each web...

This dataset combines "key ecological values" within intact forest landscapes in order to identify what can be called "key ecological areas" that is, the most valuable areas from an ecological perspective. Although intact forest landscapes have intrinsic value in themselves, identifying "key ecological values" within intact forest landscapes is challenging due to the limited amount of information on most remaining intact areas. It is also difficult to evaluate trade-offs in various prioritization schemes, as value judgments are required and values vary widely. In addition, the methodologies that have been developed for identifying and prioritizing values may not yet be sufficiently refined in order to receive...

Migratory Fish Connectivity This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the waterscapes “habitat aggregate”, which is intended to capture connections across all aquatic ecosystems. It is an index capturing how far upstream different migratory fish species have been observed. Reason for Selection Aquatic connectivity, which benefits diadromous fish, is considered a high priority for the integrity of aquatic ecosystems. Input Data -- Southeast Aquatic Connectivity Assessment Project (SEACAP) Mapping Steps 1) We used HUC 12 watershed boundary dataset polygons to dissect the polygons representing functional catchments. We did this by using the intersect function in ArcGIS. This sliced up the functional...

Resilient Biodiversity Hotspots This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the landscapes “habitat aggregate”, which is intended to capture connections across all terrestrial ecosystems. It is an index of mostly natural, high-diversity areas potentially resilient to climate change. Reason for Selection Resilience scores quantify a combination of landscape diversity and local connectedness, stratified by geophysical setting and ecoregion. These measures represent the the diversity of microclimates available to species based on their topography, wetland density, and elevation range, as well as the connectivity of natural cover. This builds on research from Anderson and Ferree (2010), who showed geophysical...
We assessed plant interspaces in July 2007 using continuous line intercepts in twice-replicated pastures of northern mixed-grass prairie with contrasting grazing treatments: 1) long-term (25 yr) heavily grazed, dominated by the bunchgrass blue grama (Bouteloua gracilis), and 2) ungrazed, dominated by the rhizomatous grass western wheatgrass (Pascopyrum smithii). The number of plant interspaces was 26% higher in pastures heavily grazed, but the amount of soil surface occupied by plant interspaces was 27% greater without grazing. Plant interspaces were larger without grazing (14.8�1.2 cm, mean�1 SE) than heavily grazed (8.9�0.4 cm). Plant interspaces represented 87% and 68% of the total soil surface in the ungrazed...

This indicator is a continuous index of highly productive areas for birds that feed exclusively or mainly at sea. It uses seasonal predictions of relative abundance for sixteen species of marine birds. Note: This indicator is at a 200 m resolution, which is coarser than other indicators used in the 2020 Blueprint.Reason for SelectionMarine birds help identify key areas of ocean productivity and overall ocean health, are regularly monitored, and resonate with a variety of audiences. This indicator complements the marine mammal index by providing finer spatial resolution and stronger connections to forage fish productivity.Input Data– Blueprint 2.1 ecosystem map (see Appendix A)– Potential species to include in this...

Freshwater Marsh Extent This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the tidal and nontidal freshwater marsh ecosystem. It captures the overall acres of freshwater marsh in the South Atlantic geography. Reason for Selection Overall acreage of existing freshwater marsh provides an indicator of whether tidal freshwater marsh being inundated by sea level rise is being replaced or restored somewhere else. It is also well monitored and resonates with a diversity of audiences. Since the area occupied by freshwater marsh shifts over time due to land use change, this extent indicator complements the freshwater marsh ecosystem map. The ecosystem map attempts to include other potential sites for freshwater...

Resilient Biodiversity Hotspots This layer is an older version of one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the landscapes “habitat aggregate”, which is intended to capture connections across all terrestrial ecosystems. It is an index of mostly natural, high-diversity areas potentially resilient to climate change. This indicator was most recently updated in Blueprint 2.2 to incorporate more recent data from TNC’s Resilient Land project. The updated indicator also has 8 categories based on standard deviations from the mean, rather than the two categories in this version, and uses an improved resampling method. Reason for Selection Resilience scores quantify a combination of landscape diversity and local connectedness....

Permeable Surface This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the freshwater aquatic ecosystem. It is an index of impervious surface within each watershed. Reason for Selection Impervious cover is easy to monitor and model, and is widely used and understood by diverse partners. It is also strongly linked to water quality, estuary condition, eutrophication, and freshwater inflow (Schueler et al. 2009, Wenger et al. 2008, Uphoff et al. 2011). Input Data -- National Land Cover Database 2011 (NLCD 2011): Percent developed imperviousness -- National Hydrography Dataset Plus Version 2 (NHD Plus Version 2) Mapping Steps 1) We calculated percent impervious for each NHD Plus catchment using the NLCD...

Marine Spatial Data: This dataset came from the Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP) which has conducted shallow water trawl surveys of the South Atlantic Bight coastal zone since 1986. This dataset was based on a recent five year time frame (2006-2010). The data were summarized into 1 x 1 minute latitude/longitude grid cells (blocks), which provide the number of collections, percent occurrence, mean catch per unit effort (CPUE), and the coefficient of variance for the CPUE. General SEAMAP Overview: The SEAMAP - South Atlantic Coastal Survey, funded by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and conducted by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources - Marine Resources Division...

Pine & Prairie Ecosystem Integrity - Blueprint 2.0 This layer is part of an older version of the Blueprint. This data represents the Blueprint 2.0 ecosystem integrity scores for the pine and prarie ecosystem within the South Atlantic LCC geography. To read more about the indicators, please visit the indicator page. Input Data and Mapping Steps Indicators (200 m resolution) were spatially modeled, tested, reviewed, and used as inputs to derive high integrity areas. Please see the indicator folder in the Blueprint 2.0 data gallery for more information about indicator spatial data. The integrity scores for this system are based on indicators within the pine & prarie and landscapes ecosystems. These indicators served...
