Description:
Abstract:
General stream habitat categories developed by Reclamation biologist from two dimensional hydraulogic modeling information for a specific reach listed in the data sets name.
Purpose:
This is part of a larger study known as the Yakima River Basin Water Storage Feasability Study (YRBWSFS). The modeling was conducted to support analysis of how fish habitats change in the reach specified in this data sets name, based on flow variations. The final data sets will be used to help determine how fish habitat will be effected by potential new water storage options.
Supplemental_Information:
This data set is part of a larger set of information. The modeled reaches are: Easton, Kittitas, Naches, Union Gap, Wapato

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Bed elevation used in the modeling process is tied to the accuracies of the bathymetric LiDAR work conducted in 2004 and 2005 with a listed error or 0.25 meters (suspected accuracy is 0.1 meters).
The habitat classifications are tied to the wetted area and water velocity from the modeling process.
For more information, see the process section of this document.
Logical_Consistency_Report: polygon topology exists
Completeness_Report:
Completely finished for the project areas. The habitat categorization was completed for the following reaches: Easton, Kittitas, Naches, Union Gap, Wapato
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The horizontal accuracy value is based on the published accuracies for the equipment used when collecting the bathymetric LiDAR data (0.25 meters). This is the major data set used to create the three dimensional mesh for the modeling. The modeling output was then used to determine fish species habitat locations. Based on error analysis, it is believed that the accuracy value is closer to 0.1. However the modeling process undoubtedly added further error to the base data. Also, the propagation of the modeling point outputs to a continuous surface adds error, especially around the river edges.

Process_Description:
This dataset was produced through a two step process: 1) Two dimensional hydraulic model created for the specific reaches. 2) General habitat classifications derived from modeling output.
THE FOLLOWING IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE ORIGINAL TWO DIMENSIONAL HYDRAULIC MODELING WORK: Model ouput variables were estimated for the Gap Reach of the Yakima River under steady-state flow by means of two-dimensional hydrodynamic modeling. The River 2D model used a two-dimensional finite element method to solve the two-dimensional shallow water flow equations. For a detailed explanation of the model, see Ghanem, A.H., P.M. Steffler, F.E. Hicks, and C. Katopodis, 1995, Two-dimensional finite element modeling of aquatic habitats:, Water Resources Engineering Report No. 95-S1, Department of Civil Engineering, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta. The conditions simulated were for a flow of 283.17 cu. m/s with a downstream water surface elevation of 288.5 m. The bed elevation surface upon which the hydrodynamic simulation was based was derived from multiple survey methods ranging from USGS boat surveys to total station data collected in small secluded sections of this reach. Final mesh was irregulary spaced varying between 2.5 to 25 meters. Final CDG files from River2D were imported into ArGIS. The final data set is in the form of a ArcGIS shapefile.
Bureau of Reclamation's UCAO office received the modeling data from the USGS and have modified minor parts of it. The changes are listed below: 1) Metadata keywords changed to include both location and theme information. 2) Attribute names changed to reflect same naming convertions of USBR modeling work. 3) Vertical and horizontal accuracies changed from a value representing units in centimeters to units in meters. 4) Water surface elevation and water depth values for locations with a froude number of 0 were changed to -3.2808 (null value used in USBR modeled areas). This resulted in pools with a Froude value = 0 being classified as land even with the model showing it being watered. For the Union Gap Reach at any modeled flow, this effected less that 0.0004% of the total 2D modeling points in the entire data set and less than 0.0034% of the pool designated 2D modeling points. The average depth of water in these areas was 0.7 inches. 5) Water velocity values were changed to a value of 0 (to be consistent with USBR modeled areas) for locations with a froude number of 0. 6) Certain attributes were deleted.

THE FOLLOWING IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE GENERAL HABITAT CLASSIFICATION DEVELOPMENT: 1) All flow levels for a specific reach were combined using the ArcGIS 'update' tool. 2) Any wetted area non-attached to the main channel in some way was eliminated from the dataset. 3) Reclamation biologists used the wetted area and water velocities to classify the habitat into the following categories: backwater, beaver pond, braid, groundwater, main, pond outlet, side channel, wetland, by overlaying ortho-photography with the combined modeled flow levels.
