Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: full

    Dataset for the structural habitat composition of the estuarine section of Ross Creek (Townsville, QLD) mapped in the period 2016-2018.

    A "structural habitat" is defined as the combination of one or more of the different structural classes belonging to the structural attributes ‘substratum’, ‘vegetation’, and ‘artificial features’. 

    The dataset includes the following layer groups:

    - Map of the extent and distribution of the 51 structural habitat types identified in Ross Creek: RossCreek_StructuralHabitats_Full_List.rar

    - Maps of the extent and distribution of natural habitats (NAT) and habitats characterised by the presence of one or more artificial modifications (MOD): RossCreek_StructuralHabitats_NAT-MOD.rar

    - Maps of the extent and distribution of the structural attribute 'Sediment', divided in five classes: mud (MUD), sand (SAN), gravel (GRV), boulder (BLD) and pavement (PAV): RossCreek_StructuralLayer_Sediment.rar

    - Maps of the extent and distribution of the structural attribute 'Vegetation', divided in two classes: mangrove (MG) and saltmarsh (SM)RossCreek_StructuralLayer_Vegetation.rar

    - Maps of the extent and distribution of the structural attribute 'Artificial feature', divided in three classes: armouring (A), stormwater drain (D) and raised structure (R): RossCreek_StructuralLayer_Artificial_Features.rar
