Area Elk River
Topic Map: F. USFS Riparian Vegetation Size, Elk River Sub-basin
 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 Elk River sub-basin. Reaches of streams flowing through grassland or open flatland often have Non-Forest riparian zones. This may be partially due to grazing and agricultural management practices, as well as urbanization. However, a large proportion of this sub-basin is timberland, and is harvested extensively. 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.
