Basin characteristics rasters for New Jersey StreamStats 2022

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), calculated several basin characteristics as part of the updated New Jersey StreamStats 2022 application (U.S. Geological Survey, 2022). These datasets are raster representations of various environmental, geological, and land use attributes within the New Jersey StreamStats 2022 study area; they are applied in the New Jersey 2022 application to describe delineated watersheds. This update features improvements in base elevation resolution from 10 meters to 10 feet and stream centerline hydrography from 1:24,000 to 1:2,400, as well as resampling of previously existing datasets to match the 10-foot resolution. The sixteen 8-digit Watershed Boundary Dataset Hydrologic Unit Codes (HUCs) represented by these datasets are 02020007, 02030103, 02030104, 02030105, 02040101, 02040102, 02040103, 02040104, 02040105, 02040106, 02040201, 02040202, 02040203, 02040206, 02040301, and 02040302 (U.S. Geological Survey, 2016). The StreamStats application provides access to spatial analytical tools that are useful for water-resources planning and management, as well as engineering and design purposes. The map-based user interface can be used to delineate drainage areas, determine basin characteristics and estimate flow statistics, including instantaneous flood discharge, monthly flow-duration, and monthly low-flow frequency statistics for ungaged streams.
