Summary

Floodplain inundation is believed to be the dominant physical driver of an array of ecosystem patterns and processes in the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Here, we present the results of a geospatial surface-water connectivity model in support of ecological investigations fully described in the USGS Open File Report entitled “Indicators of Ecosystem Structure and Function for the Upper Mississippi River System” (De Jager et al., in review). Briefly, we identified likely instances of floodplain submergence by comparing a daily time series of gage-derived water surface elevations to topo-bathymetric data modified to account for slopes and hydrologic routing. The resulting raster attribute table contains columns for unique characterizations [...]

Purpose

These data were developed to describe hydrologic conditions of non-aquatic areas in the UMRS in support of the Habitat Needs Assessment II (HNA-II; De Jager et al., in review). Examples of appropriate use include stratifying regional sampling efforts or monitoring programs, providing context for interpreting fine-scale studies of local inundation patterns, or development of other floodplain functional classes using additional flood metrics.
