Title: Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune New River Estuary Marsh Area (2010)

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 shapefile data consist of merged data using ArcGIS 10.0. The output shapefile covers the marsh area data from twomore » files; NRE_marsh_2009, and ICW_marsh_2012_extended. The base maps were digitized from 1989, 2004 and 2009 imagery. The output data consist of polygons with header descriptions. These polygons were used to estimate marsh area present aboard Marine Carps Base Camp Lejeune.« less
