For the weeks of 12 & 19 October 2015
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us on Tuesday, 27 October for a webinar on Land Cover Products for Understanding Water Quality Impacts presented by Rebecca Love and Nate Herold of NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management. Land use and land cover have significant impacts on ecosystem health—with impervious surface runoff and natural areas that provide flood protection or pollutant filtering being obvious examples. Information on how and where these and other land changes are occurring is essential to understanding the potential impacts from past management practices and choosing the right course of action for the future. NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management’s Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) provides nationally standardized land cover and change information for the coastal United States. This presentation will provide an overview of these data sets, show where to find them on the Digital Coast, and highlight several tools that make use of them.

Thank you for being a part of the OpenChannels Community,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager, and the rest of the OpenChannels Team
