Description:
Abstract:
This integrated modeling project merges biological and hydrological models to develop tools to help resource management deal with the projected ecological consequences of of rising sea level in coastal south Florida. The project builds on prior USGS research in support of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP).

To develop a realistic suite of predictive models, we are:
(1) Enhancing a hydrological model to reliably hindcast multi-decadal observed sea level rise (SLR) phenomena;
(2) Developing mechanistic models of coastal vegetation change and evaluating past change as a function of past hydrologic conditions;
(3) Incorporating episodic disturbance from hurricanes;
(4) Using the hydrologic models to simulate variables for spatially-explicit population and habitat suitability index models; and
(5) Developing futurecasting capability under projected climate change, SLR, and restoration scenarios.
Purpose:
This integrated modeling project merges biological and hydrological models to develop tools to help resource management deal with the projected ecological consequences of rising sea level in coastal south Florida. The project builds on prior USGS research in support of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Vegetation data was interpreted from maps and aerial photographs using ArcGIS 10.2.1. The spatial extent was derived using the Bisect model domain. The Bisect feature class grid was placed over the aerial photos and clipped to the extent of the area of interest. Additional attribute columns were added: mangrove, marsh, water, other trees, barren and unknown. Percent area of each vegetation type was determined by visual examination and entered for each unique row/column combination.

Spatial layers for each year were created as a feature class and the attribute table values populated.

* For the 1928 layer a T-sheet produced by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey from 1928 photography was used. The T-sheets can be accessed at https://sofia.usgs.gov/publications/ofr/02-204/
* For the 1940 layer aerial photographs were used. They can be accessed at https://sofia.usgs.gov/exchange/aerial-photos/
* For the 2004 layer aerial photographs were used. They can be accessed at http://data.labins.org/2003/

Not all cells were populated by 1928, 1940 and 2004 images. A second area, where all three sources of information overlapped, was delineated. This reclassification was done to standardized the differences in our ability to detect water. On the 1928 map the area covered by water was delineated by a cartographer and was unambiguous. In the 1940 and 2004 aerial photographs smaller channels, creeks and ponds were visible. Because of these differences in how water was classified, this second area of interest was standardized to the percent area covered by water on the 1928 map.
