Lower Brule Reservation Shoreline Erosion, Additional Data Layers, South Dakota, 2018

July 17, 2019

Additional data layers have been developed to supplement recently published information collected and developed for an investigation of shoreline erosion along the Lower Brule Reservation in Central South Dakota. The additional data layers presented in this data release include georeferenced 1965 single frame aerial photos, digitized shoreline features from the georeferenced 1965 images, digitized shoreline features from 2016 aerial imagery, and real-time kinematic surveys of shoreline features on selected reaches of the Lake Sharpe shoreline in 2018. This effort was completed by the USGS Dakota Water Science Center in cooperation with the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Tribal Preservation Office.
