NorWeST stream temperature data summaries for the western U.S.

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
NorWeST is an interagency stream temperature database and model for the western United States containing data from over 20,000 unique stream locations. Temperature observations were solicited from state, federal, tribal, private, and municipal resource organizations and processed using a custom cleaning script developed by Gwynne Chandler. Summaries of daily, weekly, and monthly means, minima, and maxima are provided for observation years.

NorWeST modeled summer stream temperature scenarios for the western U.S.

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
NorWeST summer stream temperature scenarios were developed for all rivers and streams in the western U.S. from the > 20,000 stream sites in the NorWeST database where mean August stream temperatures were recorded.

Data and source code for "A Bayesian model to correct underestimated 3D wind speeds from sonic anemometers increases turbulent components of the surface energy balance"

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
Sonic anemometers are the principal instruments in micrometeorological studies of turbulence and ecosystem fluxes. Common designs underestimate vertical wind measurements because they lack a correction for transducer shadowing, with no consensus on a suitable correction. We present a subset of data collected during field experiments in 2011 and 2013 featuring two or four CSAT3 sonic anemometers.

Species occurrence data from the Range-Wide Bull Trout eDNA Project

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
The bull trout is an ESA-listed species with a historical range that encompasses many waters across the Northwest. Though once abundant, bull trout have declined in many locations and are at risk from a changing climate, nonnative species, and habitat degradation.

Modeled historical streamflow metrics for the contiguous United States and National Forest Lands

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
Available water supply varies greatly across the United States depending on topography, climate, elevation and geology. Forested and mountainous locations, such as national forests, tend to receive more precipitation than adjacent non-forested or low-lying areas. However, contributions of national forest lands to regional streamflow volumes is largely unknown.

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest daily average streamflow data: 1992-2001

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains daily average streamflow from October 1992 through September 2001 for 11 stream gauging stations located on the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest (TCEF) which is located in the Little Belt Mountains of Central Montana, USA. Streamflow was measured at two locations on Tenderfoot Creek (Upper and Lower) as well as seven subwatersheds.

Coram Experimental Forest 15 minute streamflow data (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: November 24, 2015
This data publication contains average streamflow data reported every 15 minutes for two flumes, Abbot Creek and Lunch Fork, in the Coram Experimental Forest from October 2004 to present. The Abbot Creek flume is located approximately 200 meters downstream from the spring-fed source of Abbot Creek. The Lunch Fork flume is located on the Lunch Fork of Abbot Creek just above the confluence of Abbot Creek and the Lunch Fork.

Fraser Experimental Forest East St. Louis Creek and Lower Fool Creek daily streamflow data: 1943-1985

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains daily mean streamflow measurements taken from paired watersheds in the Fraser Experimental Forest. East St. Louis Creek, the control watershed, has streamflow measurements available from 1943-1985. The harvested (treated) watershed, Fool Creek, has measurements from 1940-1985.

Data product containing Fraser Experimental Forest bedload transport, particle size distributions, and discharge data for "Defining phases of bedload transport using piecewise regression"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data include rates of bedload transport and discharge measured at eight sites on the Fraser Experimental Forest, Colorado during snowmelt runoff periods between 1992 and 1997. Samples were collected intermittently using a hand-held Helley-Smith sampler with a 3 x 3 inch opening, 2.54 expansion ratio, and 0.25 millimeter mesh bag. Between 100 and 200 samples were collected at each site.

Data product containing Little Granite Creek and Hayden Creek bedload transport data and corresponding SAS code for "A tutorial on the piecewise regression approach applied to bedload transport data"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains the data and SAS code corresponding to the examples provided in the publication "A tutorial on the piecewise regression approach applied to bedload transport data" by Sandra Ryan and Laurie Porth in 2007 (see cross-reference section).
