Priest River Experimental Forest weekly precipitation chemistry data: ID02

Datasets Posted on: February 03, 2016
This data package contains 2003 to present day precipitation chemistry data for the Priest River Experimental Forest, in Idaho, as reported to the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP). Collected data include weekly calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), potassium (K), sodium (Na), ammonium (NH4), nitrate (NO3), chloride (Cl), and sulfate (SO4) levels in precipitation as well as the pH and other volumetric measurements.

The national stream internet

Projects Posted on: October 16, 2015
The National Stream Internet (NSI) is a network of people, data, and analytical techniques that interact synergistically to create information about streams. The NSI is needed because accurate, high-resolution status and trend information does not exist for most biological and water quality attributes across the 5.5 million stream kilometers in the United States.

Analysis paralysis

Publications Posted on: October 01, 2013
I have been Editor-in-Chief for about 10 months now. Over that period of time, I have processed hundreds of manuscripts and considered hundreds of reviews. In doing so, I have noticed an emphasis on analysis at the expense of a better understanding of the ecological system under study. I mention this not to belittle statistical advances made within various disciplines of wildlife science.

Wildlife monitoring across multiple spatial scales using grid-based sampling

Publications Posted on: July 06, 2009
Recently, noninvasive genetic sampling has become the most effective way to reliably sample occurrence of many species. In addition, genetic data provide a rich data source enabling the monitoring of population status.

On-Line Analysis of Southern FIA Data

Publications Posted on: March 08, 2007
The Southern On-Line Estimator (SOLE) is a web-based FIA database analysis tool designed with an emphasis on modularity. The Java-based user interface is simple and intuitive to use and the R-based analysis engine is fast and stable. Each component of the program (data retrieval, statistical analysis and output) can be individually modified to accommodate major additions or changes.

This is probably the most critical phase of FIREMON sampling because this plot ID must be unique across all plots that will be entered in the FIREMON database. The plot identifier is made up of three parts: Registration Code, Project Code, and Plot Number.

Fire Behavior (FB)

Publications Posted on: August 02, 2006
The Fire Behavior (FB) method is used to describe the behavior of the fire and the ambient weather and fuel conditions that influence the fire behavior. Fire behavior methods are not plot based and are collected by fire event and time-date. In general, the fire behavior data are used to interpret the fire effects documented in the plot-level sampling.

Metadata (MD)

Publications Posted on: August 02, 2006
The Metadata (MD) table in the FIREMON database is used to record any information about the sampling strategy or data collected using the FIREMON sampling procedures. The MD method records metadata pertaining to a group of FIREMON plots, such as all plots in a specific FIREMON project. FIREMON plots are linked to metadata using a unique metadata identifier that is entered in the MD table and in the PD data for each FIREMON plot.

Analysis Tools (AT)

Publications Posted on: August 02, 2006
The FIREMON Analysis Tools program is designed to let the user perform grouped or ungrouped summary calculations of single measurement plot data, or statistical comparisons of grouped or ungrouped plot data taken at different sampling periods. The program allows the user to create reports and graphs, save and print them, or cut and paste them into a word processor.

FIREMON Database

Publications Posted on: August 02, 2006
The FIREMON database software allows users to enter data, store, analyze, and summarize plot data, photos, and related documents. The FIREMON database software consists of a Java application and a Microsoft® Access database. The Java application provides the user interface with FIREMON data through data entry forms, data summary reports, and other data management tools.
