Ambient soil temperatures in prescribed burned ponderosa pine forests at Fort Valley Experimental Forest, Arizona

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
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.

Current and future plant hardiness zones for the conterminous United States

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication includes raster digital files containing plant hardiness zones of current climate (1981–2010) and future climates (2070–2099; CanESM2, GFDL-ESM2G, and HadGEM2-ES general circulation models at representative concentration pathway 8.5) in the conterminous United States. Plant hardiness zones represent the coldest day of the year, averaged over 30 years.

Ecological effects of prescribed fire on a sagebrush-steppe rangeland

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Rangelands encompass approximately 26% of land in the United States with the federal government managing 62 million hectares (Lubowski et al. 2006). A key component of rangeland sites for feeding wildlife is the insect community. Land management, particularly prescribed fire, may reduce plant species diversity, thus reducing both pollinator habitat and the quantity of other invertebrates used as food resources (Beck et al. 2008).

Spatial datasets of probabilistic wildfire risk components for the United States (270m) (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
National data on burn probability (BP) and conditional flame-length probability (FLP) were generated for the conterminous United States (CONUS), Alaska, and Hawaii using a geospatial Fire Simulation (FSim) system developed by the USDA Forest Service Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory (Finney et al. 2011). The FSim system includes modules for weather generation, wildfire occurrence, fire growth, and fire suppression.

Sediment and runoff collected from skidder biomass reduction plots, Deception Creek Experimental Forest, Idaho

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This investigation looked at the Sands Creek timber sale within the northern Idaho Deception Creek Experimental Forest (DCEF). The Sands Creek timber sale is approximately 46 hectares (113 acres), and is located roughly 40 kilometers (25 miles) east/northeast of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Seven hillslope tipping bucket runoff plots were installed in Unit 1 of DCEF, near the southwestern corner of the timber sale.

Measurements of low rates of erosion from forest fuel reduction operations in the Clearwater National Forest, Idaho

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
The Yellowpine biomass reduction study was installed on the Clearwater National Forest approximately 5 miles northeast of Harvard, Idaho. The study site was part of the Yellowpine timber sale that was harvested in the spring of 2002 followed the next year by a prescribed burn in September of 2003. This study includes 3 units: 1, 4, and 5.

Sediment and runoff collected from forwarder trails, biomass reduction project, Kaniksu National Forest, Idaho

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Fuels reduction is a forest management tool that has been in practice for the last couple of decades, especially since the development of the Wildfires and Healthy Forest Initiative Act (2003, White House). The goal behind reduction of fuels is to limit and/or prohibit catastrophic wildfires, pest infestation and to help promote healthy forests and wildlife habitat.

2008-2014 Soil temperature, thermal conductivity, water content, CO2, and pressure at the Manitou Experimental Forest, Colorado during the Bio-hydro-atmosphere interactions of Energy, Aerosols, Carbon, H2O, Organics & Nitrogen (BEACHON) study

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
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.

The Fireshed Registry: Fireshed and project area boundaries for the continental United States

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
The Fireshed Registry is a geospatial dashboard and decision tool built to organize information about wildfire transmission to communities and monitor progress towards risk reduction for communities from management investments. The concept behind the Fireshed Registry is to identify and map the source of risk rather than what is at risk across all lands in the continental United States.
