Baseline flow, gage analysis, and on-line tool development supporting bay and estuary restoration in Gulf States
Proceedings of the 2023 Mississippi Water Resources Conference

Year: 2023 Authors: Rodgers K.

The U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council and the U.S. EPA are collaborating to assess the climatic, physiographic, and anthropogenic factors driving spatial variability and temporal trends in the freshwater delivery to the Gulf of Mexico. The timing and magnitude of freshwater delivery influences terrestrial and aquatic communities, changing community composition and altering habitats necessary to support indigenous life. The 9-year, 8.9 million dollar projects examine multiple aspects of streamflow including streamflow trends, alteration of flow, lowflow statistics, and flow-ecology relationships in the southeast United States. Data produced as part of the Baseline Flow study is served on the RESTORE Data Visualization tool which utilizes modern web technologies and numerous free and open-source software (FOSS) libraries to provide user with an engaging experience through a high degree of interactivity and responsiveness. The web application provides a map-based interface for viewing spatial patterns of basin characteristics, streamflow statistics, and various metrics of flow alteration across the Gulf Coast region.
