Effects of fuels reduction treatments on the soil temperature, heat-flux, water content, and CO2 at Manitou Experimental Forest

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
From 2001 to 2006 data were collected to measure the effects of different fuels reduction treatments on the soils of the Manitou Experimental Forest, Colorado. The data includes profiles of temperature, heat-flux, water content, and CO2 at different depths in the soil and a horizontal transect surface radiation . Fuels reduction treatments included slash-piles, broadcast/lop-and-scatter areas, chipped areas, and control areas.

Data product for "Effects of water and nitrogen availability on nitrogen contribution by the legume, Lupinus argenteus Pursh"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
We conducted a greenhouse experiment to examine the separate and interacting effects of water and nitrogen (N) availability on biomass production, tissue N concentration, nodulation, nodule activity, and rhizodeposition of Lupinus argenteus (Pursh), a legume native to sagebrush steppe. Plants were grown in a replicated, randomized block design with three levels of water and four levels of N.

Geomorphology influences extent and composition of riparian plant communities at the watershed scale in central Nevada

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
We conducted an observational study of the relationships between watershed-scale geomorphology and riparian vegetation using solely digital datasets. Watershed morphometry and geology were derived from Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and geologic maps. Riparian corridors were classified into five vegetation types (riparian forest, riparian shrub, wet/mesic meadow, dry meadow, and shrub dry meadow) using high-resolution aerial photography.

Relationships between riparian vegetation and geomorphic process zones in the Toiyabe mountain range in Nevada

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
We conducted a field observational study to investigate the ecological significance of the "process zone" geomorphic classification scheme for riparian ecosystem distribution, composition, and structure. We measured geomorphic characteristics at multiple scales in order to better understand relationships between geomorphology and riparian vegetation, and to suggest improvements to the classification scheme.

Central Nevada meadow characterization

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains a geodatabase as well as tabular digital data for Central Nevada meadows that were based on data collected in the summer of 2005 and 2006. The geodatabase includes plant community arrangements, streams, springs, and watersheds within each meadow.

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest 15 minute streamflow data (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains average 15 minute streamflow data from September 2000 to September 2015 for 11 gauges located in the upper Tenderfoot Creek watershed on the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest. These data include streamflow measurements in multiple locations on Tenderfoot Creek and seven major sub-watersheds flowing into the Tenderfoot Creek drainage.

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest fluvial sediment transport data

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains average daily sediment transport data recorded at eight locations in the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest watershed from 1994 to 2014. Four sediment samplers were placed at the bottom of four sub-watersheds flowing into Tenderfoot Creek. These sub-watersheds are Spring Park Creek, Sun Creek, Stringer Creek and Bubbling Creek.
