KRIS Humboldt Bay: Map Page

Area Basin-wide/Regional
Topic Map: H. USFS Riparian Vegetation Size, Humboldt Bay
 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 Humboldt Bay Basin. Reaches of streams flowing through grasslands often have Non-Forest riparian zones. This may be partially due to grazing and agricultural management practices, as well as urbanization. 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.
