This data publication contains continuous soil measurements from the Manitou Experimental Forest, Colorado taken from December 2008 through August 2014. Data files contain soil temperature and water content summarized every 5-minutes and 30-minutes; soil thermal conductivity and carbon dioxide (CO2) summarized every 30-minutes; and soil air pressure summarized every 1-second, 5-minutes, and 30-minutes.
This data publication consists of measurements of smoke plume rise, emissions, and dispersion in and around eight wildfires in the western United States and prescribed fires in California, Idaho, and North Carolina. Eleven wildland fires were investigated between August 2009 and August 2011, allowing the research team to measure plume rise and smoke transport over a wide range of meteorological conditions, fire activity, fuels, and terrain.
The hourly temperature in the soil at three depths beneath the forest floor of ponderosa pine stands subjected to periodic prescribed burning was measured during one growing season from May until November, 1986 at the Fort Valley Experimental Forest in northern Arizona.
This report and data summarize the AmeriFlux Tech team site visit to the Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site (GLEES) in southeastern Wyoming. For this campaign, the AmeriFlux portable eddy covariance system (PECS) was deployed near the in situ GLEES micro-meteorological sensors.

It includes 5,666 fire polygons recorded from an area covering 13,839,584 hectares that include 44% of Idaho, Montana west of the Continental Divide, and Yellowstone National Park.
This coverage includes fire perimeters recorded from 1889 through 2008 in polygon coverages acquired from 12 National Forests and two National Parks as described in the Data Set Credit section. It includes 7,550 fire polygons recorded from an area covering 13,839,584 hectares that include 44% of Idaho, Montana west of the Continental Divide, and Yellowstone National Park.
This data publication contains audio and transcriptions of in-depth qualitative interviews of visitors, local residents, and scientists at Auyuittuq National Park (ANP) and Quttinirpaaq National Park (QNP) of Nunavut, Canada conducted in 2003. The interviews were meant to obtain information and feedback regarding visitor experiences. This data publication also contains survey responses from visitors to ANP in 2004.
This map is commonly called Bailey's ecoregions and shows ecosystems of regional extent in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, based on conditions in 1994. Four levels of detail are included to show a hierarchy of ecosystems. The largest ecosystems are domains, which are groups of related climates and which are differentiated based on precipitation and temperature.
This data publication contains the numbers and condition of campsites around lakes in the Spanish Peaks portion of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness in Montana. Measurements were taken in 1972, 1988, and again in 2004.
This data publication contains a map of biological reserves, in the conterminous United States (US), larger than 500 hectares managed by four US federal agencies: Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Fishand Wildlife Service (FWS), Forest Service (FS), and National Parks Service (NPS).
