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...

The shapefiles depict the valley bottom areas over which HEC-RAS model results were summarized. Valley bottoms were manually delineated in ArcMap by visually interpreting LIDAR terrain models and aerial imagery. Substantial changes in elevation, curvature, and slope were interpreted within the context of their position within the study reach to be channel banks and valley walls. Such areas were excluded from the valley bottom delineation.

The shapefiles depict the 2D HEC-RAS hydraulic modeling domains used for the simulations described in the associated publication. Model domains were delineated in the HEC-RAS geometry editor to encompass river-valley bottoms and adjacent hillslopes of four river reaches of contrasting contributing area and morphology: Seneca Creek at Dawsonville, MD; Patapsco River at Woodstock, MD; Patuxent River at Unity, MD; and Little Gunpowder Falls at Laurel Brook, MD.

Terrain models representing river channel and terrestrial surface elevations were developed for use in 2D hydraulic modeling with HEC-RAS software. Channel bed elevations were determined from cross-sectional field surveys (Seneca Creek and Patapsco River) or manual corrections of the LIDAR data (Patuxent River and Little Gunpowder Falls) and integrated with the terrestrial LIDAR data.
