Channel incision characteristics in Clarksburg, MD

September 28, 2023

This dataset describes field-measured qualitative stream channel characteristics indicative of incision and remotely-measured predictions of channel incision from lidar in three headwater streams in the Piedmont physiographic region of Maryland. The files within the field-measured channel incision folder include 1) a point file of original survey locations with a description of channel characteristics and 2) a stream network file with the field-surveyed degree of channel incision classified by stream reach. The file within the model-predicted channel incision folder includes stream networks for each watershed, and the incision prediction from lidar for the years 2002, 2008, 2013, and 2018.
