Greater Blue Earth River Basin Sediment Budget Shapefiles

image of Greater Blue Earth River Basin Sediment Budget shapefiles

These are the extents of landforms used in the construction of suspended sediment budgets for the LeSueur, Blue Earth and Watonwan Rivers. The extents of bluffs, ravines, lakes, and subwatersheds in 2010 are included, as well as riverbanks from 2008 and 1938.

Sponsorship: Minnesota Department of Agriculture

The shapefiles were derived from digital elevation models (http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/maps/lidar/index.html), historic aerial photographs (https://www.lib.umn.edu/apps/mhapo/), and recent aerial photographs (https://www.fsa.usda.gov/programs-and-services/aerial-photography/imager...).
