Hurricane and Storm Flooding: a vector for moving invasive and introduced aquatic species

Dr. Wesley Daniel, USGS
10 July 2019

  • Bio Dr. Wesley Daniel, USGS

    Storm surge and flooding events can assist the expansion and distribution of nonindigenous aquatic species through the connection of adjacent watersheds, backflow of water upstream of impoundments, increased downstream flow, and/or creation of freshwater bridges along coastal regions. The USGS Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) program's Flood and Storm Tracker (FaST) maps are available to help natural resource managers with post-storm nonindigenous aquatic species detection and assessment efforts. The FaST maps are easily accessible, informative, and provide the most up-to-date information to resource managers about potential new invasions and act as an additional tool for early detection and rapid response (EDRR) systems.
