Area Basin-wide
Topic Map: 1G Roads on Steep Slopes, Battle Creek Basin
 To view a more detailed version of this map click here
This map shows the areas in the Battle Creek basin with slopes greater than 35% (yellow polygons) and roads on steep slopes (pink lines), displayed with 1:100,000 scale streams, KRIS sub-basins and a grayscale elevation hillshade. Roads on steep slopes are more prone to erosion. Roads data were provided by Sierra Pacific Industries and Lassen National Forest. Slopes greater than 35% were calculated from 30 meter U.S. Geological Survey Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data by the KRIS team.
