Wildland Fire Potential (WFP) for the conterminous United States (270-m GRID), version 2012 continuous

Datasets Posted on: November 24, 2015
The wildland fire potential (WFP) map is a raster geospatial product produced by the USDA Forest Service, Fire Modeling Institute that is intended to be used in analyses of wildfire risk or hazardous fuels prioritization at large landscapes (100s of square miles) up through regional or national scales.

RxCADRE 2008, 2011, and 2012: Radiometer locations

Datasets Posted on: November 24, 2015
This data publication contains a geodatabase (and ASCII data files) with the dual-band ground radiometer locations within the Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) burn blocks in 2008, 2011, and 2012. These burn blocks are located at Eglin Air Force Base, northeast of Valparaiso, Florida, and at the Joseph Jones Ecological Research Center at Ichauway, near Camilla, Georgia.

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.

Sierra Ancha Experimental Forest historical photographs

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Historical photographs from USDA Forest Service Research work at Sierra Ancha Experimental Forest in Arizona. Subjects of the photographs include research techniques, locations of sample plots, harvesting methods, climatological equipment, diseases, planting, and other factors impacting a forest. Repeat photo series contain information of environmental changes over time.

Fort Valley Experimental Forest historical photographs

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Historical and current photographs from USDA Forest Service Research work at Fort Valley Experimental Forest Station in Arizona. Subjects of the photographs include research techniques, locations of sample plots, harvesting methods, climatological equipment, diseases, planting, and other factors impacting a forest. Repeat photo series contain information of environmental changes over time.

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).

Effects of fuels reduction treatments on the soil temperature, heat-flux, water content, and CO2 at Manitou Experimental Forest

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
From 2001 to 2006 data were collected to measure the effects of different fuels reduction treatments on the soils of the Manitou Experimental Forest, Colorado. The data includes profiles of temperature, heat-flux, water content, and CO2 at different depths in the soil and a horizontal transect surface radiation . Fuels reduction treatments included slash-piles, broadcast/lop-and-scatter areas, chipped areas, and control areas.

Santa Fe Watershed Fuels Reduction Project: Avian Point Counts

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Data were collected during a fuels reduction project conducted by the Santa Fe National Forest in the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed from 2002 to 2007. Fuel reduction includes mechanical thinning, burning of piles and broadcast burning though only a small portion of the study area was burned during wildlife monitoring. In addition to areas thinned, we collected data in adjacent areas that were not actively managed.
