Rosen Lake Foreshore Inventory Mapping Open

This dataset contains the accessible data and reports for the FIMP survey carried out in Rosen Lake in 2010. The Rosen Lake shoreline is approximately 5,440 m long and is dominated by a vegetated shore, mud substrates and a mixture of urban and high density recreation land uses. All areas of the Rosen Lake foreshore, except for a small vegetated island at the northern end of the lake, exhibit a high level of impact due to a high level of urbanization. Numerous docks, retaining walls, and substrate modifications were observed along the foreshore of Rosen Lake. However, some small wetland and marsh areas were observed along the main lakeshore as well as along the uninhabited island at the north end. Overall, the AHI analysis for Rosen Lake ranked the main lakeshore as low, whereas the island contained very high value habitats.
