RxCADRE 2012: Instrument and infrared target survey locations and attributes

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
This data package contains one shapefile of 875 target survey locations of the 2012 burns from the Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) project. This peoject was a collaboration of 30 leading fire scientists across 6 fire disciplines to collect various data on 7 large operational prescribed fires in 2008 and 2011 at the Eglin Air Force Base in Okaloosa County, Florida and the Joseph W.

Data supporting publication of fortifying the forest: thinning and burning increase resistance to a bark beetle outbreak and promote forest resilience

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
This package contains data used for the publication "Fortifying the forest: thinning and burning increase resistance to a bark beetle outbreak and promote forest resilience" (Hood et al. 2016). This study includes measurements from 1996-2012 at the Lubrecht Fire-Fire Surrogate Study Site, which was established in 2000 and includes four treatments, an untreated control, prescribed burn, a thinning, and a thinning followed by prescribed burn.

Data for National Fire and Fire Surrogate study: environmental effects of alternative fuel reduction treatments

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
Comprised of 12 sites nationwide, the Fire and Fire Surrogates study (FFS) is a comprehensive interdisciplinary experiment designed to evaluate the economics and ecological consequences of alternative fuel reduction treatments in seasonally dry forests of the United States.

RxCADRE 2008: Wildfire Airborne Sensor Program - Lite uncalibrated long wave infrared image mosaics

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
The Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) was designed to collect atmospheric, fuels, fire behavior, energy balance, emissions, and fire effects data to evaluate and advance fire models and further our understanding of fire science questions.

Seed and ring width data from 'Climate drivers of seed production in Picea engelmannii and response to warming temperatures in the southern Rocky Mountains'

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
Seed production by Picea engelmannii was monitored at 13 plots distributed across an approximately 670 meter elevation gradient in the Fraser Experimental Forest near Fraser, Colorado. Seeds were collected annually between 1970 and 2010 from ten wire mesh seed traps located in each of the 13 plots. Annual plot level estimates of seed abundance were derived from an average value of the 10 traps.

Bailey's ecoregions and subregions of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
This map is commonly called Bailey's ecoregions and shows ecosystems of regional extent in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, based on conditions in 1994. Four levels of detail are included to show a hierarchy of ecosystems. The largest ecosystems are domains, which are groups of related climates and which are differentiated based on precipitation and temperature.

Priest River Experimental Forest weekly precipitation chemistry data: ID02

Datasets Posted on: February 03, 2016
This data package contains 2003 to present day precipitation chemistry data for the Priest River Experimental Forest, in Idaho, as reported to the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP). Collected data include weekly calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), potassium (K), sodium (Na), ammonium (NH4), nitrate (NO3), chloride (Cl), and sulfate (SO4) levels in precipitation as well as the pH and other volumetric measurements.

Wildfire Hazard Potential (WHP) for the conterminous United States (270-m GRID), version 2014 classified

Datasets Posted on: November 24, 2015
Federal wildfire managers often want to know, over large landscapes, where wildfires are likely to occur and how intense they may be. To meet this need we developed a map that we call wildfire hazard potential (WHP) – a raster geospatial product that can help to inform evaluations of wildfire risk or prioritization of fuels management needs across very large spatial scales (millions of acres).

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.
