This project applied sea-level rise (SLR) modeling approaches along the Pacific coast tidal gradient at a parcel scale through improved data collection tools and collaboration relevant to land managers. At selected salt marsh parcels in both the North Pacific and California LCCs, data collection techniques were employed to assess detailed baseline habitat elevations; tidal ranges, microclimate, and extreme weather events; sediment supply sources; vegetation community composition; and vertebrate population indices. The design provides resource managers with information on the value of different datasets and methods including their uncertainty, as well as determines their usefulness in climate change adaptation planning...
Proposed Revised Critical Habitat for the Pacific Coast Western Snowy Plover (Charadrius Alexandrinus Nivosus)
Proposed revised critical habitat for the pacific coast western snowy plover. This dataset was created to revise the 2005 final critical habitat rule for the species. This dataset includes polygon features representing proposed unit boundaries and exempted unit boundaries from Washington, Oregon, and California. There are 55 units, some containing from 2 to 10 sub-units. The units are identified by state, unit number, and sub-unit alpha character. Unit boundaries were compiled from data developed in several field offices, including the Western Washington Fish and Wildlife Office (FWO) in Lacey, WA; the Newport Field Office, Newport, OR; the Arcata FWO, Arcata CA; the Sacramento FWO, Sacramento, CA; the Ventura FWO...
These data identify polygon locations where final critical habitat for the Western Snowy Plover is designated.
Assessing Marsh response from sea-level rise applying local site conditions:Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge - Final Report
Our study focused on seven marsh sites distributed throughout Humboldt Bay and largely withinrefuge boundaries; Hookton Slough Island, Salmon Creek marsh, White Slough marsh, EurekaSlough marsh, Jacoby Creek marsh, Mad River Slough marsh, and Manila marsh. These marshesprovide important habitat for marsh-dependent species, such as Humboldt Bay Owl’s Clover(Castilleja ambigua), Western Snowy Plover (Charadrius alexandrinus nivosus), and Steelhead(Oncorhynchus mykiss).
Includes wintering and nesting areas of Western Snowy Plover, Bank Swallow closure areas, and Lessingia recovery areas. National Parks Service (NPS) identifies several special management areas within the study area, including a portion of Ocean Beach that is managed as wintering habitat for the western snowy plover; San Francisco lessingia recovery areas near Baker Beach and Fort Funston (NPS, 2002), and; a seasonal bank swallow closure area (NPS, 2010) at Fort Funston. This dataset also includes Pinniped haul-out areas describe by NOAA (2007) to include single-event haul-out locations and areas with continual Pinniped use, and citizen-monitored snowy plover wintering areas at Linda Mar Beach (Pacifica Riptide,...
