This is a spatially-explicit state-and-transition simulation model of rangeland vegetation dynamics in southwest South Dakota. It was co-designed with resource management partners to support scenario planning for climate change adaptation. The study site encompasses part of multiple jurisdictions, including Badlands National Park, Buffalo Gap National Grasslands, and Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The model represents key vegetation types, grazing, exotic plants, fire, and the effects of climate and management on rangeland productivity and composition (i.e., distribution of ecological community phases). See Miller et al. (2017) for further details. The model was built using the ST-Sim software platform (www.apexrms.com/stsm)....

This data release contains one point shapefile describing cattle access to streams for three USGS showcase watersheds: Smith Creek, Conewago Creek, and Upper Chester River. This data release identifies areas where cattle were able to access the stream, as well as possible cattle access areas. Streams were defined using a combination of geospatial data and aerial imagery and cattle access points were determined by locating cattle paths adjacent to stream morphology.
A study using multiple techniques provided insight into tectonic influences on ground water systems; the results can help to understand ground water systems in the tectonically active western United States and other parts of the world. Ground water in the San Bernardino Valley (Arizona, United States and Sonora, Mexico) is the main source of water for domestic use, cattle ranching (the primary industry), and the preservation of threatened and endangered species. To improve the understanding of ground water occurrence, movement, and sustainability, an investigation was conducted using a number of complementary methods, including major ion geochemistry, isotope hydrology, analysis of gases dissolved in ground water,...

The allotment (Range Management Unit) feature class depicts the boundaries of range allotments and wild horse territory on the Dixie National Forest. Each unit is a designated area of land available for livestock grazing.

This data release contains one shapefile describing cattle access to a total of 36 different sub basins within the Shenandoah Watershed located in Virginia and West Virginia. This data release identifies areas in satellite imagery where cattle were observed to have access to the stream (confirmed access), areas where cattle exist, and are not fenced off from the stream (unrestricted access), and areas where cattle do not have access to the stream (restricted access) at the time of imagery capture. Streams were defined using a combination of geospatial data and visually assessing channel morphology in aerial imagery. Cattle access points were determined by visually assessing satellite imagery for barren or disturbed...

These data were compiled for an assessment of rangeland ecosystem conditions of the Grand Canyon - Parashant National Monument. The approximately one-million-acre Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument (PARA) is located in the northwest corner of Arizona and co-managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and National Park Service (NPS). This report is focused on the ca. 200,000 acres of NPS administered lands—one of the largest NPS units where livestock grazing is a permitted land-use activity. Many ecosystems in PARA are characterized by a low degree of resilience to improper grazing due to low and variable precipitation. PARA is marked by an extremely high degree of environmental heterogeneity, including...

Final version of BLM grazing allotments within the West Mojave Plan Area after Plan adoption. Updated with post-Plan changes (i.e. relinquished allotments).
Ammonia is an important air and water pollutant, but the spatial variation in its concentrations presents technical difficulties in accurate determination of ammonia emissions from animal feeding operations. The objectives of this study were to investigate the relationship between ammonia volatilization and delta15N of dairy manure and the feasibility of estimating ammonia losses from a dairy facility using chemical markers. In Exp. 1, the N/P ratio in manure decreased by 30% in 14 d as cumulative ammonia losses increased exponentially. Delta 15N of manure increased throughout the course of the experiment and delta15N of emitted ammonia increased (p<0.001) quadratically from -31 per thousand to -15 per thousand....
