As the SEAK Hydro database evolves, so to will the metadata for this dataset. Until noted otherwise, please reference this dataset's metadata for an older version of the source data.This map service contains two barrier layers, one from the USFS and one from the AWC. The USFS barriers layer contains points representing bedrock waterfalls in Southeast Alaska that are potential barriers to fish passage on the Tongass National Forest. Waterfalls less than 1 meter are not mapped nor are those caused only by wood or debris jams. Channel types considered to be de facto barriers to fish passage HC5, HC6, & MC3 (Channel Type Users Guide, USFS 1992) were not included in the layer. The AWC layer is undocumented at this time.

Barriers were characterized as the minimum distance from forested regions, highways and perennial rivers. Forested regions were extracted from GAP/EVT landcover data by isolating pixels that were classed as ‘forest’. Only forested regions having canopy cover of >80% were selected by using the Landfire canopy cover dataset. TIGER road data was used to identify highways. The USGS National Hydrography Dataset was used to extract perennial stream features. Proximity analyses were applied to all development datasets and scored. Habitat located greater than 1,500 meters away from barriers were considered good, habitat within 400-1,500 meters of barriers were considered fair, and habitat within 400 meters were considered...

Alterations to stream hydrology, which include changes in stream geomorphology, are primary impacts of anthropogenic disruption. In North Carolina, hydrological alterations lead to environmental impacts through degraded ecosystems and water quality. In collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Mitigation Services (DMS), the USGS South Atlantic Water Science Center datasets are proxy measurements of the extent of altered hydrology in riverine systems across the State of North Carolina. The datasets consist of an inventory and characterization of small scale (mostly agricultural) ponds and artificial drainages, which are both significant hydrologic modifications in the...

This CSV file contains 21 dam metrics representing stream fragmentation and flow alteration for nearly 2.3 million stream reaches in the conterminous USA. Dam metrics fall into four main categories: segment-based, count and density, distance-based, and cumulative reservoir storage (described below). These data were developed using spatially verified large dam locations (n=49,468) primarily from the National Anthropogenic Barrier Dataset (NABD) that were spatially linked to the National Hydrography Dataset Plus version 1 (NHDPlusV1). These dam metrics have been summarized using the unique identifier field native to the NHDPlusV1 (COMID) which can be used to join this table to spatial layers and data tables of the...

The Oregon Fish Passage Barrier Data Standard (OFPBDS) dataset contains barriers to fish passage in Oregon watercourses. Barriers include the following types of natural or artificial structures: bridges, cascades, culverts, dams, debris jams, fords, natural falls, tide gates, and weirs. The OFPBDS dataset does not include structures which are not associated with in-stream features (such as dikes, levees or berms). Barriers are structures which do, or potentially may, impede fish movement and migration. Barriers can be known to cause complete or partial blockage to fish passage, or they can be completely passable, or they may have an unknown passage status. The third publication of the OFPBDS dataset (Version 3)...

Ponds are impoundments that have been used for flood control, water supply, irrigation, and recreation. They constitute modifications to the stream network that fragment the aquatic habitat by limiting river network connectivity necessary for fish passage. A dataset was developed to quantify small ponds as proxy measures of barriers to flow in stream networks across the State of North Carolina. The USGS used a combination of the 2016 National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) and the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) Plus High Resolution to identify 105,560 small ponds that are less than 10 acres in size. The features are more refined than larger scale assessments such as those in the NHDPlus High Resolution and provide...
