Title: Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Water/Land change between 1984-2007 for the White Oak watershed and MCBCL

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.This data set is a two time period classification of water and land, using 1984 and 2007 as the twomore » dates. Each date was classified with two classes, water and land: 1 = water, 2 = land. The two dates were then combined as a two digit code with the 1984 condition in the 1's place and the 2007 condition in the 10's place, as follows: 11 - water both years; 12 - land in 1984, water in 207; 22 - land both years; 21 - water in 1987, land in 2007. The code is maintained in the shapefile in the 'GRIDCODE' attribute.« less
