 You selected the area Blue Waterhole Creek and the topic Map: 1E USFS Riparian Veg Size, Blue Waterhole Cr. Sub-basin  
This is a map of vegetation size data within 90-meter riparian buffer zones in the Blue Waterhole Creek sub-basin with a U.S. Geologic Survey topographic map as a backdrop. The tree size classifications were derived from Landsat multi-spectral images taken in 1994. Stand conditions are accurately represented at the one hectare scale. The small diameter tree size and non-forest conditions in the riparian are partially owing to the band of grasslands, which crosses the middle of the watershed (white areas on USGS Topo). Early seral riparian conditions may also reflect recent timber harvest, where smaller diameter trees occur and there is no indication of adjacent meadow areas. Data were provided by the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region Remote Sensing Lab, in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry. Available layers include Vegetation Size, Grayscale Hillshade, and Change in Vegetation (1994-1998). Scale = 1:60,148 .
