Land Cover Change in the Delaware River Basin

Detailed Description

Land cover is animated through time in the Delaware River Basin. The visual shows a map and chart reflecting the proportion of land area in 8 major land cover classes: water, agriculture, barren, forest, grassland, wetland and developed areas (low and high intensity). Time is broken into 10 year intervals. Through time, forest cover replaces agriculture up until 1970. Simultaneously developed areas replace agriculture and grasslands through 2020. Forest is the dominant land cover class.
