Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest annual precipitation data: 1993-2010

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains annual precipitation at ten locations on the Tenderfoot Experimental Forest. The ten locations are Bubbling Creek, County line, Dry Park, Farnes Meadow, Lonesome Creek, Lower Sun Creek, Upper Stringer Creek, Passionate Creek, Lower Stringer Creek and Onion Park. Precipitation values were collected in storage gauges kept on site year long.

High resolution interpolation of climate scenario change factors for the conterminous USA derived from AR4 General Circulation Model simulations

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Projections of future global climate have been developed by numerous climate modeling groups around the world; however, this data is often at spatial scales much larger than the spatial scale of resource management. This study develops a set of change factors that can be used with a user-selected historical climate data set to create climate change projections at the spatial scale of approximately 9.25 kilometer grid.

Wildland Fire Management Research, Development & Application Program

Pages Posted on: August 14, 2015
The Wildland Fire Management Research, Development & Application Program (WFM RD&A) was initiated in 2007 to provide exemplary fire science integration and wildland fire management support to management agencies and partners. The program sponsors and guides the development and application of wildland scientific knowledge, develops decision support tools, and provides science application services to the interagency wildland fire community.

Field plot measures and fuel treatment units used to assess the effectiveness of (WUI) fuel treatments burned through by the 2007 East Zone and Cascade megafires in central Idaho

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains both vector and tabular digital data providing field plot measures and fuel treatment units used to assess the effectiveness of (WUI) fuel treatments burned through by the 2007 East Zone and Cascade megafires in central Idaho.

GLEES (Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site)

Experimental Forests and Ranges Posted on: December 04, 2014
The Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site is a high elevation wilderness-like site where research is conducted to determine the effects of atmospheric deposition and climate change on alpine and subalpine aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems and the upper treeline ecotone. Long-term physical, chemical, and biological monitoring is an important component of the activities at GLEES.

MTCLIM: a mountain microclimate simulation model

Publications Posted on: January 05, 2012
A model for calculating daily microclimate conditions in mountainous terrain is presented. Daily air temperature, shortwave radiation, relative humidity, and precipitation are extrapolated form data measured at National Weather Service stations. The model equations are given and the paper describes how to execute the model. Model outputs are compared with observed data from several mountain sites.

Trends in pan evaporation and actual evapotranspiration across the conterminous U.S.: paradoxical or complementary?

Publications Posted on: July 07, 2006
Pan evaporation (ETpan) has decreased at 64% of pans in the conterminous U.S. over the past half-century.
