Floodplain in the U.S.


  US national wide gSSURGO based floodplain maps are developed by using Gridded Soil Survey Geographic (gSSURGO) database. Specifically, the SSURGO map units are joined to certain key attributes in the muaggatt and component tables. More details about this approach can be found in the following publication: Sangwan, Nikhil, and V. Merwade, A faster and economical approach to floodplain mapping by using soil information, Journal of American Water Resources Association, 51(5): 1286-1304. (2015)
