Exit and Paradise Creek Drainage Area Boundaries, Alaska, 2012

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This dataset contains drainage area boundaries for Exit Creek and Paradise Creek in Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska. A drainage area boundary identifies the land area generating surface water that flows to the network of streams above a particular point. In addition to defining the drainage divide, the drainage area boundary provides a bounding area for determining physical and climatic basin characteristics relevant to hydrology. The drainage area boundaries for Exit and Paradise Creeks were developed to compute stream drainage area, percent cover of glaciers or other land cover types, mean basin precipitation and temperature, and other basin characteristics. The drainage area boundaries for Exit and Paradise Creeks include refined glacier divides that may be used to generate glacier boundaries.
