Camp Swift Fire Experiment 2014: Fire behavior packages and videos

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains fire behavior package (FBP) data and in-situ videos collected as part of a prescribed fire research campaign conducted at the Camp Swift Military Base in Bastrop County, Texas on January 15, 2014. Fire behavior packages, cameras and flame height measurement poles were placed inside burn units on the day of ignition.

RPA Historical observational data (1979-2015) for the conterminous United States at the 1/24 degree grid scale based on MACA training data (METDATA) (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains a gridded historical (1979-2015) dataset for the conterminous United States that has been summarized to the monthly time scale. This monthly historical dataset was developed using the daily MACA observational data (METDATA), also called MACA Training Data (https://www.northwestknowledge.net/metdata/data/).

National forest climate change maps: your guide to the future

Projects Posted on: December 09, 2020
The National Forest Climate Change Maps project was developed to meet the need of National Forest managers for information on projected climate changes at a scale relevant to decision making processes, including Forest Plans.  The maps use state-of-the-art science and are available for every National Forest in the contiguous United States with relevant data coverage. Currently, the map sets include variables related to precipitation, air temperature, snow (including April 1 snow-water equivalent (SWE) and snow residence time), and stream flow.

Landscape resistance mediates native fish species distribution shifts and vulnerability to climate change in riverscapes

Publications Posted on: October 02, 2020
A broader understanding of how landscape resistance influences climate change vulnerability for many species is needed, as is an understanding of how barriers to dispersal may impact vulnerability. Freshwater biodiversity is at particular risk, but previous studies have focused on popular cold-water fishes (e.g., salmon, trout, and char) with relatively large body sizes and mobility.

Climate relationships with increasing wildfire in the southwestern US from 1984 to 2015

Publications Posted on: September 30, 2020
Over the last several decades in forest and woodland ecosystems of the southwestern United States, wildfire size and severity have increased, thereby increasing the vulnerability of these systems to type conversions, invasive species, and other disturbances. A combination of land use history and climate change is widely thought to be contributing to the changing fire regimes.

User's guide to the weather model: a component of the western spruce budworm modeling system.

Publications Posted on: June 22, 2020
A stochastic model useful in simulating daily maximum and minimum temperature and precipitation developed by Bruhn and others has been adapted for use in the western spruce budworm modeling system. This document describes how to use the weather model and illustrates some aspects of its behavior.

Effects of temperature, photoperiod, and Myxobolus cerebralis infection on growth, reproduction, and survival of Tubifex tubifex lineages

Publications Posted on: February 27, 2020
Tubifex tubifex is the definitive host for Myxobolus cerebralis, the causative agent of whirling disease in salmonid fish. Several mitochondrial lineages of T. tubifex exhibit resistance to M. cerebralis infection. Release of the triactinomyxon form of the parasite from T. tubifex varies with water temperature; however, little is known about the interactive effects of temperature and photoperiod on the susceptibility of T.

Edge-related gradients in microclimate in forest aggregates following structural retention harvests in western Washington

Publications Posted on: August 01, 2018
Aggregated retention is now a common method of regeneration harvest in forest ecosystems managed for both timber and ecological objectives. If residual forest aggregates are to serve as temporary refugia for species sensitive to disturbance or environmental stress, microclimatic conditions must be sufficiently buffered to allow for their persistence.

RxCADRE 2012: In-situ fire behavior measurements

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains fire behavior package (FBP) data; primarily flame temperature, horizontal and vertical mass flow, fire intensity, as well as ocular rates of spread (ROS), wind speed and direction data from the Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) project conducted in November, 2012.
