Littoral Rainforest mapping in the Wet Tropics


The data represents the output from a Northern Australian Environmental Resources Hub NESP project titled "Mapping to underpin recovery planning for Littoral Rainforest and Coastal Vine Thickets (LRF) in the Wet Tropics". The following spatial layers were derived: • LRF vegetation that ‘wholly-equates’ to the EPBC Listi... more

FINAL REPORT: Mapping to underpin recovery planning for Littoral Rainforest and Coastal Vine Thickets in the Wet Tropics.

Attribution

Mapping the location of LRF in the Wet Tropics involved an iterative GIS and field-ground-truthing process. This project used coastal LiDAR data (1 m grid, 0.15 m accuracy) to compile fine-scale terrain layers to derive inundation levels for an 80 cm sea-level rise and for eight storm surge. Annual Recurrence Intervals (ARIs) between 20 and 10,000 years. Spatial layers of the location of LRF and inundation were overlaid to determine the probability and magnitude of risk to the ecological community from these effects and to prioritise management interventions.
