Summary

These data were collected for multiple purposes. First, they were gathered in support of conducting a condition assessment of fluvial waterbodies throughout the United States in support of the National Fish Habitat Action Plan (NFHAP). Second, these data were intended to be made available to NFHAP Partnerships as well as other users interested in acquiring consistently-organized information available characterizing river systems over larger regions. This work was supported by local, state, and federal partners of NFHAP, including the U.S. Geological Survey. Because the condition assessment was conducted over such a large geographic region, we adopted a landscape approach for assessment which assumed that anthropogenic disturbances as well as natural characteristics in the watersheds affect a given unit of habitat which in turn would affect fishes. It was necessary to use a landscape approach because landscape data are available for every location in of the United States whereas local measures of habitat or biological indicators of habitat condition are only available at a very small percentage of locations around the country.

Description

The mission of the National Fish Habitat Action Plan is to protect, restore, and enhance the nation's fish and aquatic communities through partnerships that foster fish habitat conservation and improve the quality of life for the American people. Reversal of widespread fish habitat degradation will require effective spatial planning, which begins with spatial assessement of current habitat conditions. This dataset presents an assessment of cumulative anthropogenic disturbance to fish habitats in California under the assumption that downstream local habitat conditions will reflect conditions in the catchment upstream. Geographic information systems data was used to attribute 15 disturbance variables to the catchments of mapped river reaches to calibrate an index of cumulative disturbance that considered effects originating from both local and upstream catchments. These features contain local and network catchment human disturbance variables representing anthropogenic alterations to landscapes in California, including land use, roads, dams, mines, and point-source pollution sites. The source datasets that were compiled and attributed to catchments were identified as being: (1) meaningful for assessing fish habitat; (2) consistent across the entire study area in the way that they were assembled; (3) representative of conditions in the past 10 years, and (4) of sufficient spatial resolution that they could be used to make valid comparisons among local catchment units. These variables can be linked to the reaches and catchments of the National Hydrography Dataset Plus (NHDPlus). For more information visit www.fishhabitat.org

Supplemental information
NFHAP GIS Processing Methodology for the Initial National Assessment Processing steps were used for a subset of datasets acquired for use in the initial national assessment being performed on the conterminous 48 states for NFHAP. With the exception of elevation data, processing steps used for datasets and variables supplied with the NHDPlus dataset are excluded (this information available in the NHDPlus user guide and metadata). Also excluded are processing steps for datasets acquired by NFHAP, but not used in the current assessment. The modifications and manipulations made to these datasets were done to facilitate variable generation and catchment attribution.

Data quality report - Conceptual consistency


Data quality report - Completeness omission
Measure description
Catchment attributes for the 'Coastline' flowline feature type were excluded in both the local and network catchment data tables. In addition, catchment attributes for flowlines were given -99 values in the following cases: - flowlines that occur along international boundaries (e.g. Rio Grande), as data for these catchments are incomplete (catchment boundaries extend beyond U.S. border and are outside the extent of the source datasets). - flowlines lacking a local catchment (typically very short flowlines less than 50 meters long). These flowlines often have network catchment attributes resulting from CA3T output. - flowline catchments missing data for a particular source data set (e.g. catchment fell outside extent of the data grid) were given -99 values. - flowlines associated with estuaries.




Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy

Description
National Land Cover Database 2001 Source: Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Consortium (MRLC) Scale/Resolution: 30 meter Time Period: 2001 Download: http://www.mrlc.gov The 2001 NLCD data was downloaded by NLCD land cover region (14 total regions for the conterminous 48 states). In addition to land cover information, the 2001 NLCD includes imperviousness and forest canopy datasets. Image (.img) format datasets were converted to an Arc/Info grid using the IMAGEGRID command in ArcInfo Workstation (the bilinear interpolation option was used for the forest canopy images): imagegrid landcover1_3k_022007.img landcover1 # # nearest # The regional land cover, forest canopy, and imperviousness grids were created using a set of nested GRID commands in ArcInfo Workstation. The first command used was SELECTMASK, which restricted the output grid to the boundary of the CAT catchment grid for each NHDPlus region. In the original data structure, the grid value of 127 was used in place of the 'No Data' category. This value was changed to 'No Data' using the SETNULL command. If needed, the MERGE command was used to combine multiple NLCD regions to form one NHDPlus region. Below is an example of the code that was used to generate the output land cover, imperviousness, and forest canopy grids: landcov2001 = selectmask (merge (setnull(landcover1 == 127, landcover1), setnull(landcover2 == 127, landcover2), setnull(landcover3 == 127, landcover3)), cat)

National Inventory of Dams Source: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Scale/Resolution: N/A Time Period: 2002-2004 Download: http://crunch.tec.army.mil/nidpublic/webpages/nid.cfm The spatial reference for the downloaded point shapefile was assumed to be Geographic NAD83, as there was no projection file and no coordinate system information in the metadata. The national dam dataset was selected and exported for each NHDPlus region using the "Select by Location" feature in ArcMap. The comid and grid_code fields were added to the regional dam shapefiles by doing a spatial join in ArcView using the polygon catchment shapefile (catchment.shp) for each NHDPlus region. The Compiled Table Tools extension was then used to permanently add the catchment.shp attributes to the dam shapefile table.

These sites were selected for each NHDPlus region using the "Select by Location" feature in ArcMap and exported to a new shapefile. The comid and grid_code fields were added by doing a spatial join of catchment.shp to the EPA sites shapefile in ArcView, then, using the Compiled Table Tools extension, the fields were permanently joined to the dams.dbf table. Five additional fields (Cerc, Nept, Pcs, Rcra, and Tri) were added and calculated as 0 if the site was not part of the regulation program, or 1 if it was part of the program. Sites may be regulated by more than one type of program.

Water Use Estimates 2000 Source: National Atlas of the United States / U.S. Geological Survey Scale/Resolution: County Time Period: 2000 Download: http://www.nationalatlas.gov/mld/wu2000t.html Water use estimate tables were downloaded and permanently joined to a national county shapefile using a common field (FIPS). The county shapefile was then projected from the Geographic NAD83 coordinate system to the national Albers NAD83 CONUS projection using ArcToolbox (Data Management Tools\Projects and Transformations\Feature\Project). Four new fields were added to the shapefile attribute table; square_km, wfrto, wgwfrto, and wswgrto. The square_km field was calculated by converting an existing area field, square_mil, from square miles to square kilometers. The square_km field was then used to generate the integer wfrto (estimated total water withdrawal of fresh water), wgwfrto (estimated total surface water withdrawal of fresh water), and wswgrto (estimated total surface water withdrawal of ground water) fields. Values were converted to integer to facilitate the generation of integer grids in addition to creating larger units for analysis (final units in millions of gallons per day per square kilometer * 10000). The resulting fields were then used to convert the shapefile to three grids (surface water, ground water, and total water estimates) for each NHDPlus region using the SHAPEGRID and SELECTMASK commands in ArcInfo Workstation: setcell ..\drainage\cat setwindow ..\drainage\cat ..\drainage\cat wateruse_temp = shapegrid(H:\NFHI\Data_Layers\National_Atlas\Water_Use\water_use_estimates_2000_alb.shp, wfrto, #) watuse2000_to = selectmask(wateruse_temp, ..\drainage\cat) watuse_temp1 = shapegrid(H:\NFHI\Data_Layers\National_Atlas\Water_Use\water_use_estimates_2000_alb.shp, wgwfr, #) watuse2000_gw = selectmask(watuse_temp1, ..\drainage\cat) watuse_temp2 = shapegrid(H:\NFHI\Data_Layers\National_Atlas\Water_Use\water_use_estimates_2000_alb.shp, wswfr, #) watuse2000_sw = selectmask(watuse_temp2, ..\drainage\cat)

The shapefile was projected using ArcToolbox (Data Management Tools\Projections and Transformations\Feature\Project). The M135_02 field (average number of cattle and calves per 100 acres of all land in farms) was converted to integer by multiplying by 100, resulting in a new field, cattle_int. Null values of -9999 were removed. The projected shapefile was converted to a grid for each NHDPlus region using the SHAPEGRID command in ArcInfo Workstation. The cattle_int field was used as the value for the output grid. The cell size, analysis window, and mask were set to the CAT catchment grid prior to conversion. Below is an example of the command line operations that were used: setcell ..\drainage\cat setwindow ..\drainage\cat ..\drainage\cat cattle_temp = shapegrid(agcensp020_alb.shp, cattle_int, #) cattle_dens = selectmask(cattle_temp, ..\drainage\cat)

After extracting the county shapefiles, a statewide road shapefile was created using the MERGE tool in ArcToolbox (Data Management Tools\General). The resulting shapefile was checked for completeness against a county boundary file to ensure that no county shapefiles were missing. Projection files (Geographic NAD83) were then imported for each shapefile. Each statewide road shapefile was clipped using ArcToolbox (Analysis Tools\Extract), using a dissolved NHDPlus catchment boundary as the clip polygon. The clipped shapefiles were then merged for each NHDPlus basin using MERGE in ArcMap. Road crossing shapefiles were generated using the INTERSECT tool in ArcMap (Analysis Tools\Overlay\Intersect), with the output shapefile feature type set to point.
