This tabular dataset includes precipitation data, inflow and outflow data, and other associated data for a bioretention garden in Douglas County, Nebraska. At the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging (ENOA) bioretention garden the components of the water balance that were measured or calculated were precipitation volume, stormwater inflow volume to bioretention garden, were overflow volume, and evapotranspiration. The performance of the bioretention gardens was evaluated for a series of rainfall events. The start of an event was determined based on when rainfall began at the site. The end of an event was determined based on when the water level was equal to zero in the stilling well of the inflow flume or when the water...

This tabular dataset includes measurements of net radiation, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and calculated reference evapotranspiration (ET0) for a bioretention garden in Douglas County, Nebraska.To determine the amount of water that was lost to the atmosphere, evapotranspiration (ET) was calculated at the Douglas County Health Center (DCHC) bioretention garden by scaling the reference evapotranspiration (ET0) by a landscape coefficient. Measurements of net radiation, air temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed were used to calculate daily ET0 using the Penman-Monteith equation (Monteith and Unsworth, 1990; Allen and others, 1998). Reference evapotranspiration represents ET, in inches, over...

Suggested citation: Schrass, K. and A.V. Mehta. 2017. Improved Use and Understanding of NNBF in the Mid-Atlantic. Annapolis, MD: National Wildlife Federation.Executive SummaryThe impacts of climate change are already being felt in the Mid-Atlantic region. Coastal communities and habitats are threatened by sea level rise and an increasing frequency and severity of strong storms. Traditionally, gray infrastructure like seawalls and bulkheads have been used to protect coasts; however, these approaches disrupt intact ecological systems and exacerbate damage along adjacent shorelines. As a result, Natural and Nature-Based Features (NNBF) are increasingly being explored as a means of adapting to climate change while also...

This dataset describes streamflow and precipitation event statistics for four watersheds located in Clarksburg, Maryland, USA. Streamflow and precipitation events were identified from fourteen years of sub-daily (5- and 15-minute) monitoring data from October 1, 2004 through September 30, 2018. A 6-hour inter-event window was used to define discrete streamflow and precipitation events. The following streamflow metrics were calculated for each event area normalized peak streamflow, runoff yield, runoff ratio, streamflow duration, time to peak, and rise rate. Precipitation event metrics include total precipitation depth and precipitation event duration.

Green infrastructure networks designed by The Conservation Fund for areas within the Mississippi River Basin. These green infrastructure networks were developed using the core-hub-corridor approach as follows. The building blocks of the network are “core areas” that contain well-functioning natural ecosystems that provide high-quality habitat for native plants and animals. By contrast, “hubs” are aggregations of core areas as well as nearby lands that contribute significantly to ecosystem services like clean water, flood control, carbon sequestration, and recreation opportunities. Finally, “corridors” are relatively linear features linking cores and hubs together, providing essential connectivity for animal, plant,...

This tabular dataset includes precipitation data, inflow and outflow data, and other associated data for a bioretention garden in Douglas County, Nebraska. At the Douglas County Health Center (DCHC) biorentention garden the general monitoring design corresponded to a water balance approach to characterize the inputs, outputs, and change in storage within the bioretention gardens. The components of the water balance that were measured or calculated were precipitation volume, stormwater inflow volume to bioretention garden, overflow volume, and evapotranspiration. The performance of the bioretention gardens was evaluated for a series of rainfall events. The start of an event was determined based on when rainfall began...

This data release includes stormwater inflow, outflow, and subsurface storage data for two bioretention gardens located in Omaha, Nebraska. Additionally, two additional datasets are included which contain meteorology and evapotranspiration data for each site. These sites were located at the Douglas County Health Center (DCHC), and the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging (ENOA).
