Description:
Abstract:
This data release contains coastal wetland synthesis products for the geographic region of eastern Long Island, New York, including the north and south forks, Gardiners Island, and Fishers Island. Metrics for resiliency, including unvegetated to vegetated ratio (UVVR), marsh elevation, and mean tidal range, are calculated for smaller units delineated from a Digital Elevation Model, providing the spatial variability of physical factors that influence wetland health. Through scientific efforts initiated with the Hurricane Sandy Science Plan, the U.S. Geological Survey has been expanding national assessment of coastal change hazards and forecast products to coastal wetlands with the intent of providing Federal, State, and local managers with tools to estimate the vulnerability and ecosystem service potential of these wetlands. For this purpose, the response and resilience of coastal wetlands to physical factors need to be assessed in terms of the ensuing change to their vulnerability and ecosystem services.
Purpose:
The purpose of this shapefile is to calculate the mean elevation for each marsh unit and its vegetated component. Analysis of marsh elevation is part of a comprehensive assessment to identify the factors and their weights in determining the vulnerability and resiliency of salt marshes. Elevation distribution in the eastern Long Island salt marsh complex is given in terms of mean elevation of conceptual marsh units. The elevation data is based on the 1-meter resolution National Elevation Database (NED).

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Marsh units and water and land boundaries inherit their horizontal accuracy from the accuracy of the source data, the eastern Long Island marsh units, and their vertical accuracy from the 2015 U.S. Geological Survey National Elevation Database (USGS NED).
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Positive elevation indicates above sea level. Marsh units with extremely low elevation (smaller than 0.2 percentile value), extremely high elevation (larger than 99.8 percentile value) or areas less than 900 square meters were flagged.
Completeness_Report:
The results are specific to the marsh polygons as defined within the boundaries of the eastern Long Island salt marsh complex. A detailed on-the-ground analysis of a single site may result in a different interpretation of the wetland and marsh unit boundaries.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Horizontal accuracy is inherited from the source dataset that delineates the marsh units, and can be considered to be +/-6 meters.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Because the elevation values are averaged over delineated polygons, vertical accuracy depends on both the horizontal accuracy of the NWI dataset and the vertical accuracy of the source elevation data, NED. NED vertical elevation accuracy is 0.2 meters.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
This process step and all subsequent process steps were performed by the same person, Robert Welk, in ArcMap (ver. 10.6.1) using tools from ArcToolbox, unless otherwise stated. For complex operations, names of specific tools used are given in CAPITAL letters (any critical parameters used are given in parentheses, separated by a semicolon, immediately after the tool name). The input and output file names are provided in [square brackets] when necessary. Units for length and area calculations are meters (m) and square meters (m2) unless otherwise stated.
a) Set the data frame coordinate system and projection to NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N. Prepare elevation dataset to be clipped to the boundaries polygon. MOSAIC TO NEW RASTER(Pixel type=32 bit float; Mosaic operator=Mean; Cellsize=1 m) the entire NED raster to a new raster dataset with 1 m resolution [elev_mosaic.tif].
b) Calculate values for each marsh unit. DISSOLVE(Input features=[CMU_ELI]; Dissolve field=FID_CMU; Statistics field=ATOT_M2 and FLG with Statistics type= First) to dissolve the vegetated and unvegetated classes in each marsh unit. FLG flags anomalous marsh units based on absence of vegetation, elevation and surface area, and is set to (-1) no vegetated area; (-10) marsh unit elevation higher than the 99.8 percentile; (-100) marsh unit elevation less than 0.2 percentile; (-1000) marsh unit surface area less than 900 m2; and (0) no flag. Combination of negative values indicate a combination of flags. For example, -1001 indicates no vegetated area and area less than 900 m2. PROJECT(Input coordinate system=WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere; Output coordinate system=NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N; Geographic transformation=WGS 1984 (ITRF00) to NAD 1983) the feature dataset to obtain dissolved marsh units [mu_diss.shp].
c) Clip the raster with the polygon features by using EXTRACT BY MASK to obtain [elev_idw_mu.tif].
d) ZONAL STATISTICS AS TABLE(Feature Zone Data=[mu_diss.shp]; zone field=FID_CMU; Value Raster=[elev_idw_mu.tif]; Output Table=mu; Statistics type=MEAN)
e) ADD JOIN(Layer name=[mu_diss.shp]; Input join field=FID_CMU; Join Table=mu; Output join field=FID_CMU) to marsh units layer based on the "FID_CMU" field
f) Export dataset as a shapefile [mu_elev.shp] and keep the 'mu_MEAN" and "mu_ATOT_M2" fields from the join operation.
g) Calculate elevation of the vegetated areas only. SELECT BY ATTRIBUTES FROM [CMU_ELI] where "CLASS"= 'vegetated'. Follow steps (c) to (f) using the selected features to export [veg_elev.shp].
h) JOIN FIELD(Input table=[mu_elev.shp]; Input join field=mu_FID_CMU; Join table=[veg_elev.shp]; Output join field=vg_FID_CMU; Join fields=vg_AVEG_M2,vg_ATOT_M2,vg_MEAN). Change the field names to VG_ELEV and MU_ELEV respectively for the fields with the mean elevation for the vegetated area only and mean elevation for the entire marsh unit. Set VG_ELEV to -9999 if there is no vegetated area in the marsh unit. Name AVEG_M2 and ATOT_M2 for vegetated and total area, respectively, and export to a new shapefile. [mu_elev_ELI.shp].
i) Calculate metrics that quantify the distribution of marsh unit elevation values. SKWNSS is the measure of skewness of the elevation distribution in the vegetated part of a marsh unit. Positive skewness values, i.e. right-skewed distributions, indicate clustering of elevation distributions towards lower elevations. Negative numbers indicate a left-skewed distribution and clustering towards higher elevations. LOW3RD is the percent of elevation values that fall within the lowest third of the elevation range within the vegetated part of a marsh unit. SKWNSS and LOW3RD parameters are calculated by applying the formulation of Raposa et al. (2016) to the elevation raster within the vegetated part of each marsh unit.
j) SELECT BY ATTRIBUTES FROM [CMU_ELI] where "CLASS"= 'vegetated', and join field "APGN_M2" from CMU_ELI.shp on the feature dataset [mu_elev_ELI.shp].
k) Calculate ratio of hydroflattend area in each marsh unit. Reclassify NED elevation raster with RASTER CALCULATOR (expression: SetNull('elev_mosaic.tif' == -1, 'elev_mosaic.tif') to get [elev_null.tif]. ZONAL STATISTICS AS TABLE (Input table=[mu_elev.shp, Zone field=FID_CMU], Input value raster=elev_null.tif, Statistics type=Mean) to get [hfar_mu]. ADD FIELD to output table 'MU_HFAR' and use FIELD CALCULATOR ((1-MEAN/2)). JOIN FIELD(Input Table=mu_elev.shp, Input Join Field=FID_CMU, Join Table=hfar_mu, Output Join Field=FID_CMU). If 'MU_HFAR' > 0.25, set 'mu_elev' = 0.
l) Calculate ratio of hydroflattend area in the vegetated area of each marsh unit. ZONAL STATISTICS AS TABLE (Input table=[veg_elev.shp, Zone field=FID_CMU], Input value raster=elev_null.tif, Statistics type=Mean) to get [hfar_veg]. ADD FIELD to output table 'VG_HFAR' and use FIELD CALCULATOR ((1-MEAN/2)). JOIN FIELD(Input Table=mu_elev.shp, Input Join Field=FID_CMU, Join Table=hfar_veg, Output Join Field=FID_CMU). If 'MG_HFAR' > 0.25, set 'vg_elev' = 0.
m) Rearrange field names and change the projection for better performance of web services with online base maps. PROJECT(Input coordinate system=NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N; Output coordinate system=WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere; Geographic transformation=WGS 1984 (ITRF00) to NAD 1983) the feature dataset to obtain the final conceptual marsh units [mu_elev_ELI.shp].

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
In this dataset, mean elevation for each conceptual salt marsh unit in the eastern Long Island salt marsh complex has been calculated based on the 1-meter resolution raster source dataset. Decimal values in the attribute table are a result of double precision calculations while significant digits are considered in defining the attribute measurement resolutions. Therefore, the smallest unit increment for area values and elevation is assumed to be 1 meter and 0.01, respectively.
