Summary

These data represent potential areas of ground-water discharge for selected hydrographic areas in eastern Nevada and western Utah. The data are based on phreatophyte boundaries published by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and on unpublished boundaries mapped by the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA). Selected basins also were mapped by the USGS during an aerial field reconnaissance. The largest phreatophyte extent from all the sources was typically selected as the final boundary where a basin was covered by multiple boundaries. Selected basins were field verified and modified to reflect the ground condition during the summer of 2005. This data set also includes subbasin boundaries identified by Sweetkind and others (2007) (See [...]

Purpose

The intended use of this data set was to identify evapotranspiration (ET) unit areas for each hydrographic area and to identify the subbasin ET units for each hydrographic area.
