Statewide RRP

Description:
A riparian recovery potential was conducted for all valley bottoms of the state. This was done by combining two inputs in a simple rule based model: the RCA output, which describes the current condition of riparian areas, and an existing geomorphic condition layer, modeled by reclassifying the Landfire EVT layer for use as a proxy of geomorphic condition. The output, in its current state reflects “intrinsic recovery potential” or the potential for riparian recovery if the area was simply left alone with considering factors such as water withdrawal and economic feasibility. The output is broken into six recovery potential categories: conservation, protection, high, moderate, low and minimal.
