This is a habitat suitablilty map and component layers estimating bat watering habitat on the Colorado River bottomland in Utah during high flow conditions. The model combines the presence of prefered slow water channel types (backwaters, isolated pools and tributary mouths), with cover types amenable to bat overflights and drinking 'on-the-wing'. See Open File Report, Rasmussen and Shafroth, Colorado River Conservation Planning for geoprocessing details.
