Data Identification
Abstract: Forests provide economic and ecological value. High amounts of forest edge indicates a highly fragmented forest, which generally diminishes those economic and ecological values. EDGE65 is the percent of forest that is classified as edge using a 65 ha scale. More information about these resources, including the variables used in this study, may be found here: https://edg.epa.gov/data/Public/ORD/NERL/ReVA/ReVA_Data.zip.
Purpose: The data can be used for analysis and general mapping. Information provided in these data tables is indexed to HUC Code, and can be joined to the HUC_CODE field of the HUC250K layer. It was developed for use in EPA's Regional Vulnerability Assessment (ReVA) program. The ReVA program is designed to produce the methods needed to understand a region's environmental quality and its spatial pattern. The objective is to assist decision makers in making more informed decisions and in estimating the large-scale changes that might result from their actions.
