 To view a more detailed version of this map click here
This is a map of 1999 USFS Landsat vegetation size data within 90-meter riparian buffer zones in the Petaluma River sub-basin. Riparian zones in the lower watershed were primarily non-forest, but there were some forested riparian zones in the headwaters of tributary streams, especially San Antonio Creek. Data provided by the U.S. Forest Service Spatial Analysis Lab in Sacramento, CA. The vegetation classification is accurate at a one-hectare scale (approximately 11 pixels) and is suitable for stand classification.
