Title: Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Green Gain time series Zipcode

Abstract

Critical military training and testing on lands along the nation’s coastal and estuarine shorelines are increasingly placed at risk because of development pressures in surrounding areas, impairments due to other anthropogenic disturbances, and increasing requirements for compliance with environmental regulations. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) intends to enhance and sustain its training and testing assets and to optimize its stewardship of natural resources through the development and application of an ecosystem-based management approach on DoD installations. To accomplish this goal, particularly for installations in estuarine/coastal environments, the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) launched the Defense Coastal/Estuarine Research Program (DCERP) as a minimum 10-year effort at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune (MCBCL) in North Carolina. The results of the first six years of the program (DCERP1) are presented here.The overarching objectives of DCERP are to: (1) understand the effects of military training activities, infrastructure development, and other coastal military installations; (2) develop models, tools, and indicators to evaluate ecosystem health; and (3) recommend adaptive management strategies to sustain ecosystem natural resources within the context of an active military installation.Green Gain time series 'Zipcode' Input files are 5 pixel minimum area, MCBCL only data from the individual green lossmore » change periods. These were converted from categories of intensity 2,3,4 to simple binary 'change' and 'no-change'. These files were then converted to the following: 84-90 loss: 0,1 84-98 loss: 0,10 84-05 loss: 0,100 84-07 loss: 0,1000 84-09 loss: 0,10000 Files then simply added together to create change time series. This results in a range of possible values from 11111 (loss detected during each time period) to 00001 (change in the 1984-1990 period, but not observed as green loss by 1998, 05,07 or 09 - probably a temporary impact that 'revegetated').« less
