Existing and projected “worst-year” (year with least available habitat) areas of available primary waterbird habitat (km2) in the Central Valley of California for 17 climate, urbanization, and water management scenarios, by habitat and month

Metadata Updated: June 15, 2024

The dataset summarizes areas of Central Valley wetland and cropland waterbird habitats available for each of 17 projected scenarios by each month (August–December and following January–March). The dataset also includes relatively recent (year 2005) area of existing habitat (i.e., “existing area”) for comparison with habitat areas based on scenarios. Cropland habitats are defined as winter-flooded rice, unplowed dry rice, winter-flooded corn, unplowed dry corn, and other winter-flooded cropland (in Tulare basin). Wetlands are defined as summer-irrigated seasonal wetland, seasonal wetland that is not summer-irrigated, and semipermanent wetland (combines semipermanent and permanent wetland types). Thus, data on availability of waterbird habitats is summarized by scenario, habitat, and month in 1 metric (area of available habitat in km2). These data are used to support the following publication: Matchett EL, Fleskes JP (2017) Projected Impacts of Climate, Urbanization, Water Management, and Wetland Restoration on Waterbird Habitat in California’s Central Valley. PLoS ONE 12(1): e0169780. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0169780
