Abstract

The associated code and data are supporting information for an assessment of large-scale changes in aquatic habitats within the varying pools of the Arkansas River, Arkansas, USA following impoundment of the river as part of the McClellan–Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System. We used a combination of Landsat satellite data (30 m resolution) from 1984-2016 and the European Commission Joint Research Center’s (JRC) Global Surface Water dataset (GSW) to assess changes in water availability by aquatic habitat category and river pool in the Arkansas River system. Analysis was completed using Google Earth Engine, with code available in this repository. We also provide shapefiles associated with categorization of river habitat classes.
