Peatlands are valuable ecosystems due to their critical ecological functions, however these sensitive habitats are vulnerable to various anthropogenic (e.g., peat-moss extraction, forestry or land-use practices, hydrological modifications, fragmentation, infrastructures); atmospheric (e.g., acid rain, nitrogen deposition, climate change); and natural (e.g., fire, erosion, invasive vegetation) stressors. The purpose of the bog dynamics monitoring program is to evaluate the condition of several ombrotrophic bogs with water quantity and quality parameters, as well as modifications in vegetation composition in order to detect degradation of these systems over time due to the potential stressors. The methods for this measure involve the monitoring of six stations, each consisting of three vegetation plots placed at set points along a transect located in representative vegetation away from the moat zone; and one surface water well for the measurement of water quantity and quality parameters. Each permanent vegetation plot consists of one shrub quadrat (5m x 5m) and four ground vegetation quadrats (1m x 1m).

The Acadian forest in a natural state is one of the richest and more diverse temperate forests in the World, however it has been listed as one of six endangered forests in North America and is also the predominant ecosystem within Kouchibouguac National Park. A few key tree species of priority conservation concern have been identified as indicators of forests conditions: white pine (Pinus strobus), eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis), and eastern white cedar (Thuya occidentalis). These softwood species merit particular attention due to their rarity relative to historic levels or recent notable declines at the population level. Red maple (Acer rubrum) has also been selected for special interest as a representative of hardwood species in mixed forests.

This dataset covers the monitoring of changes in coastal dynamics in Forillon National Park. This measure consists of three field measurements: the rate and extent of shoreline displacement, monitored annually using benchmarks; the rate of change in the area of the various coastal types, monitored every 10 years using georeferenced aerial photographs; and beach width, monitored annually.
Given that sea-level rise will inevitably affect coastal dynamics at Forillon, particularly with respect to coastal erosion, the monitoring of this measure is necessary in light of concerns about the park’s ecosystem. In certain low-lying areas of the park, this phenomenon could even result in the loss or alteration of important habitats, such as the Penouille or Cap-des-Rosiers marsh.

Dynamic Habitat Index. (2000-2005) Satellite derived estimates of photosynthetically active radiation can be obtained from satellites such as MODIS. Knowledge of the land cover allows for calculation the fraction of incoming solar radiation that is absorbed by vegetation. This fraction of photosynthetically active radiation (fPAR) absorbed by vegetation describes rate at which carbon dioxide and energy from sunlight are assimilated into carbohydrates during photosynthesis of plant tissues.

The North America Surface Water Values point dataset contains the current water level and stream flow values as recorded by Canadian and USA hydrometric gauging station locations.

Daily values are recorded as well as comparisons with historical measurements, including difference in values from the previous day, the mean level for that calendar date, the annual mean water level, and maximum and minumum recorded levels. Percentile values based on historical average for both water level and stream flow are also included.

Real-time gauging station data for Canada is available here: https://wateroffice.ec.gc.ca/search/statistics_e.html

Real-time gauging station data for the United States is available here: https://waterservices.usgs.gov/rest/Statistics-Service.html
