The regional flow patterns dataset was designed to identify potential larger-scale directional movements and pinpoint the areas where they are likely to become concentrated, diffused, or rerouted, due to the structure of the landscape. We used the software tool Circuitscape (McRae and Shah 2009, http://www.circuitscape.org/) based on electric circuit theory, to model these larger flow patterns for the region. Like the local connectedness analysis, the underlying data for this analysis was land-cover and road data converted to a resistance grid by assigning weights to the cell types based on their similarity to cells of natural cover. However, instead of quantifying local neighborhoods, the Circuitscape program calculates...

Project Summary Climate change is projected to have substantial impacts on Pacific Northwest water resources and ecosystems. Recognizing this, resource managers have expressed growing interest in incorporating climate change information into long-range planning. The availability of hydrologic scenarios to support climate change adaptation and long-range planning, however, has been limited until very recently to a relatively small number of selected case studies. More comprehensive resources needed to support regional planning have been lacking. Furthermore, ecosystem studies at the landscape scale need consistent climate change information and databases over large geographic areas. Products using a common set of...

This collection of maps shows fluvial geomorphic features of the Colorado River bottomland including river channel boundaries at high flow (31,300 cubic ft/sec on 06/28/2011 at the Cisco gage) and at lower flow (3,410 cubic ft/sec on 09/06/2010 at the Cisco gage). Also shown is the bottomland boundary delineating the currently active fluvial surface; the bottomland is subdivided by both reaches and bottomland kilometers for reference. Centerlines for the bottomland and 2010 river channel are included, also.
