Data and source code for "Bayesian analyses of seventeen winters of water vapor fluxes show bark beetles reduce sublimation"

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Sublimation is important to the water cycle of cold, snow dominated ecosystems, many of which have been recently disturbed. In high elevation spruce-fir forests of western North America spruce beetle outbreaks have killed trees, reduced the canopy, and altered the processes that control sublimation. This publication includes the data, source code used for statistical analyses, and Bayesian posterior distributions used in Frank et al.

Species occurrence data from the aquatic eDNAtlas database

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
The eDNA samples in the eDNAtlas database describe species occurrence locations and were collected by the U.S. Forest Service and numerous agencies that have partnered with the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) throughout the United States. This project began in 2015, but updates will include legacy data that were collected using the same protocol. The eDNAtlas database consists of three feature classes.

AmeriFlux site visit report and data for the Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site (US-GLE)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
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.

Supporting data for "Evaluating the Factors Responsible for Post-Fire Water Quality Response in Forests of the Western USA"

Data and source code for "Impacts of non-ideality and the thermodynamic pressure work term p Delta-v on the Surface Energy Balance"

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Present day eddy covariance based methods for measuring the energy and mass exchange between the earth's surface and the atmosphere often do not close the surface energy balance. Frequently the turbulent energy fluxes (sum of sensible and latent heat) underestimate the available energy (net incoming radiation minus the soil conductive heat flux) by 10 to 20% or more.

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).

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.

Geospatial data for Great Basin perennial montane watersheds - geomorphology, hydrology, vegetation, disturbance and species

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Multiple partners working together developed a multiscale approach for assessing the geomorphic sensitivity of streams and ecological resilience of riparian ecosystems, including meadows, in upland watersheds of the Great Basin to disturbances and management actions. This data publication contains the geospatial data, representative of 2020, resulting from that work.
