This study area consists of a 10-km inland buffer of the U. S. Great Lakes shoreline. Islands within the lakes were included in this invasive Phragmites mapping project where remotely sensed imagery scenes were available.

These files were used to construct corridors estimating the extent of new coastal corridors exposed by reduced lake levels. They are included here to show the available horizontal extent of lidar-derived topo-bathymetric data and thus explicitly identify gaps and limitations of predicted corridor extents under various reduced lake level scenarios. In addition, these files provide users with a background layer that depicts the topographic variability of the submerged near-shore lake bed and terrestrial landscape.These files are 5m grid representations of the hydrographic and topographic data collected by the CHARTS system along the coasts of the U.S. sides of Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie,...

Maps of areas greater than 0.2 hectare (0.5 acre) dominated by invasive Phragmites australis were created for the coastal region (shoreline to 10 km inland) of the United States side the Great Lakes and connecting water ways. The maps were developed using unsupervised/supervised classification methods and ground truth data collected during 2010 and 2011 in conjunction with multi-season ALOS PALSAR imagery (for the remote sensing-based iterative classification process), as well as through the interpretation of aerial photography to reduce classification confusion. Overall classification accuracy compared to field data for mapping was approximately 86%.

This network of inland streams, wetlands and water bodies is a composite of two layers from the National Hydrography Dataset Plus (NHD+ flow lines and water bodies), and all available wetlands from the National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) and Wisconsin Wetlands Inventory (WWI). In combination, these layers provide a network template of inland corridors for assessing relative vulnerability to future invasions of Phragmites.

These data represent coastal corridors exposed by lake levels reduced from mean 2009 water surface elevations. These elevations were established by values published by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and based on a network of multiple gages within each lake. The corridors were derived from two data sources: 5-m resolution lidar-based topo-bathymetry produced by the USACE Joint Airborne Lidar-Based Technical Center of eXpertise (JALBTCX) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coastal Services Center, and bathymetric contour lines produced by the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL). The JALBTCX lidar-based topo-bathymetry were used to produce representations...

Habitat suitability was estimated for invasive Phragmites in the coastal Great Lakes region (shoreline to 10 km inland). These estimates were based on current distribution patterns and environmental conditions. Phragmites presence or absence was defined based on a distribution map produced by cooperative research between the GLSC and Michigan Technical Research Institute. Environmental variables were processed in a Geographic Information System (GIS) and came from existing publicly available sources. Variables include descriptors of soils, nutrients, topography, ecoregion, anthropogenic disturbance, and climate. Environmental conditions and Phragmites presence/absence were sampled in a GIS at points established...

Description of Work U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) will use remote sensing data to establish a baseline understanding of current distributions of invasive wetland plants and then forecast potential invasion corridors. Alterations to the Great Lakes shoreline or water-level patterns associated with global climate change could have significant impacts on the extent and composition of coastal habitat. Low lake levels can expose fertile wetland bottomlands to invasive species such as common reed ( Phragmites). Goals & Objectives Goals: Identify current Phragmites distribution in the Great Lakes coastal zone, detect potential areas vulnerable to invasion due to influences such as altered water levels, nutrient and...
