Abstract or Summary
  • High resolution land use/land cover information from stream riparian areas is useful in understanding instream biotic assemblages, and is often not available for geographical research. A classification system was developed which provides the types of information about the riparian buffer thought to be important in providing good habitat for, or disturbing the habitat of, aquatic biota. Using this classification, large scale airphotos of fifteen western Oregon streams were interpreted. These lines were digitized using MDSD, which removes airphoto distortion. Stream buffers were created using ARC/INFO, and linear and areal totals were determined for each stream. This land use/land cover information was then used to create a list of streams which lie on a continuum from least to most anthropogenically disturbed.
