Description: Technical Note
Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) presents a relational database that lists, describes, and links critical ecological processes to their associated landscape metrics and patterns. It is meant to provide a better understanding of the relationships between ecological processes and landscape pattern, which is critical for successful project planning and operations. Such a database is the first of its kind for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) project-level assessment of potential impacts and benefits related to ecosystem functions.
