Process Step:
Process Description: All processing was done using ESRI's ArcGis Software, version 9.0. Source data was Kentucky's 10-meter(30-foot) Digital Elevation Models for each 6-digit hydrologic unit with karst sinkholes. National Hydrologic Data(NHD) streams were burned into the DEM using the ArcHydro tool DEM RECONDITIONING creating a grid called AGREEDEM. Sinks in the AGREEDEM were filled using the ArcHydro tool FILL SINKS. A grid of the differences between the filled DEM and the AGREEDEM was created using the raster calculator and the DIFF function. Zero values in the difference grid were replaced with NoData. The difference grid was converted to an integer grid. The REGIONGROUP tool in spatial analyst was used to group the cells for each sink and give them the same value producing a grid called REGION. A flow direction grid was created using the ArcHydro flow direction tool on the AGREEDEM. A grid of the sinks SINKFDR was created using the SINK tool in spatial analyst. The REGION grid was converted to polygon features REGIONPOLY. Polygons in REGIONPOLY less than 5000 square feet were deleted. Polygons in REGIONPOLY that did not intersect the polygons in the Kentucky Geological Survey sinkhole dataset were deleted. Buffer polygons were created for the NHD streams that are not sinking streams, with a buffer distance of 200 feet. Polygons in REGIONPOLY that did not intersect the stream buffer were exported to polygon features SPILLWAYPOLY. SPILLWAYPOLY was converted to a grid SPILLWAYGRID. A grid of sink throats THROATGRID was created from SINKFDR using SPILLWAYGRID to eliminate the throats that were outside the spillway sinks. Polygons in SPILLWAYPOLY that intersect THROATPOLY were exported to polygon feature SPILLPOLYSINK. SPILLPOLYSINK converted to a grid SPILLSINKGRD. Grid THRTLINK created using the raster calculator to select the cells in SPILLSINKGRD that are not NoData in THROATGRID. NoData values in THRTLINK converted to zero using the ISNULL tool in spatial analyst, producing grid THROATNODATA, all other values changed to 1. Grid THRTNDDEM created using the raster calculator to substitute values of AGREEDEM for all cells in THROATNODATA with a value of 1, all other cells are NoData. ArcHydro fill sinks tool used to create THRTDEMFIL from THRTNDDEM. Grid FINALDEM created using the raster calculator to substitute the values from AGREEDEM for the NoData values in THRTDEMFIL. ArcHydro flow direction tool used to create FINALFDR from FINALDEM. ArcHydro catchment grid tool used to create grid CAT using FINALFDR and THRTLINK as the inputs. ArcHydro tool catchment polygon tool used to convert CAT to polygon features CATCHMENT. CATCHMENT polygons from all the 8-digit hydrologic units loaded into a polygon feature class SINKSHEDS in the KYSINKSHEDS personal geodatabase.
