Current national data resources for GAP include three primary data sets – land cover, protected areas, and species. Land Cover: The GAP/LANDFIRE National Terrestrial Ecosystems data, based on the NatureServe Ecological Systems Classification, are the foundation of the most detailed, consistent map of vegetation available for the United States. These data facilitate the planning and management for biological diversity on a regional and national scale. Learn more about GAP land cover data here: https://www.usgs.gov/core-science-systems/science-analytics-and-synthesis/gap/science/land-cover Protected Areas: The Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) is a national geodatabase, created by USGS GAP,...

An extreme flood in 2016 caused widespread culvert blockages and road failures across northern Wisconsin, including extensive damage along steep tributaries and ravines in the Marengo River watershed. Along with the flooding, there were fluvial erosion hazards (FEH) associated with a large amount of erosion in headwater areas. Of special concern were FEHs associated with gullying, loss of wetland storage, and valley-side mass wasting. In 2020, a pilot study was begun to map and classify ephemeral and perennial streams and wetlands in terms of their susceptibility to fluvial erosion hazards. This study combines rapid geomorphic field assessments of river corridor erosion and coupled sediment and debris delivery with...

The Southeastern United States spans a broad range of physiographic settings and maintains exceptionally high levels of faunal diversity. Unfortunately, many of these ecosystems are increasingly under threat due to rapid human development, and management agencies are increasingly aware of the potential effects that climate change will have on these ecosystems. Natural resource managers and conservation planners can be effective at preserving ecosystems in the face of these stressors only if they can adapt current conservation efforts to increase the overall resilience of the system. Climate change, in particular, challenges many of the basic assumptions used by conservation planners and managers. Previous conservation...
