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.

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...
