This dataset contains small cutthroat trout lakes within Southeast Alaska. These are smaller lakes that do not produce cutthroat trout large enough to reach the 11-inch regional minimum size limit. Each of these lakes has a 9-inch minimum size limit, and bait is prohibited. Regionwide limits of 2 per day and 2 in possession apply. Currently there are seven lakes in Southeast Alaska with the small cutthroat lake designation. Please verify fishing regulations with current Alaska Department of Fish and Game Sport Fishing Regulations at the following link: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fishregulations.se_sportfish

The Tongass National Forest has identified resources that are important to stakeholders and vulnerable to climate-related stressors. Cooperators will review an action plan and convene a workshop to be held in Southeast Alaska in 2016. The workshop will foster collaboration between scientists, managers, and stakeholders. Workshop goals include: sharing information about climate-related stressors and effects on NPLCC Priority Resources in the Tongass National Forest; developing strategic priorities for improving understanding, reducing risks, and increasing adaptive capacity and resilience; coordinating support for increasing knowledge and informing resource managers

This dataset contains polygons describing photo interpreted map classifications of the Tongass National Forest developed in 1978. The dataset's primary objective was to delineate major land types and their attributes. The land types were mapped at a polygon level - areas generally homogenous in character. Mapping was done to a 10 acre minimum except for non-commercial and non-forest types which were mapped to a 5 acre minimum. The classification identifies water as well as land. It segregates land into non-forest and forest. Polygons in forested areas were assigned a single, representative set of attributes; species composition, age, and volume class. Tim86 was updated in the 1980's (mostly in 1986) to reflect timber...

CoverType is a photo-interpreted delineation of the Tongass National Forest by land type and timber cover type. Classification of lands was done sequentially: 1) land and water identified; 2) forested and non-forested areas were identified; 3) forested areas were classified by forest type and forest productivity; and 4) productive forest lands were further characterized by volume class, tree size, species composition. The original classifications were based on photo-interpretation of 1:15840 aerial photographs in 1978. The minimum map unit size is approximately 10 acres, though the average area for forested polygons is 60 acres. Additionally, CoverType is updated for new stands created through natural events or...
