These data include a row for each duck nest equipped with a small video camera. We present the location of the nest, the timing of the start of hatch, the timing of the end of hatch, and the timing of the departure of the hen and ducklings from the nest. Additionally, this table includes any predators that were observed at the nest depredating eggs prior to hatch and any predators that were observed at the nest between hatch and departure from the nest. These data support the following publication: "Sitting ducklings: Timing of hatch, nest departure, and predation risk for dabbling duck broods" by Sarah H. Peterson, Joshua T. Ackerman, Mark P. Herzog, C. Alex Hartman, Rebecca Croston, Cliff L. Feldheim, and Michael...

Lidar-derived digital elevation models often contain a vertical bias due to vegetation. In areas with tidal influence the amount of bias can be ecologically significant, for example, by decreasing the expected inundation frequency. We generated a corrected digital elevation mode (DEM) for Suisun marsh using a modification of the Lidar Elevation Adjustment with NDVI (LEAN) technique (Buffington et al. 2016). GPS survey data (6912 points, collected across public and private land in 2018), Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) derived from an airborne multispectral image (June 2018), a 1 m lidar DEM from September 2018, and a 1 m canopy surface model were used to generate models of predicted bias across the...
Technological advancements in Global Positioning System (GPS) telemetry markers allow almost real-time observation of waterfowl movements and habitat selection. Telemetry data on ducks marked with GPS transmitters can be used to evaluate performance of remote sensing data (for example, dynamic open-water maps produced by Point Blue Conservation Science) for classifying habitats that are flooded and available for waterfowl. Translating dynamic open-water maps to waterfowl-relevant habitat maps provides a major improvement for wildlife researchers and managers to assist in their assessments of the areas and habitats used by waterfowl as hydrologic conditions change, both temporally and spatially. Suitable habitat...

Our research focuses on assessing the components of the Net Ecoystem Carbon Balance using the eddy covariance approach to measure atmospheric fluxes of heat, energy, carbon dioxide and methane and testing equipment and techniques to measure the tidal exchange of dissolved organic (DOC) and inorganic carbon (DIC). The atmospheric flux tower is located south of Solano Land Trust's Rush Ranch, a working ranch encompassing 2,070 acres of marsh and rolling grasslands that provides both recreational and educational experiences for the public (http://www.solanolandtrust.org/RushRanch.aspx). Lateral fluxes are being collected at the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve First Mallard water quality station...
In this data set, records (rows) represent GPS locations of ducks marked with telemetry in California and whether locations were overlapping (within 300 m of) locations of marked ducks in other consecutive years (2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18) during October - March. Years 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18 represented drought, non-drought, and non-drought, respectively. Matchett and company (2020; see Larger Work section for citation) summarized this data set in tables E3 and E4 to compare overlap of duck locations between consecutive years to investigate interannual habitat stability in relationship with drought, habitat management (daytime roosts and night feeding sites), and in two regions (Suisun Marsh and California...
Tabular data that represent the proportion of area classified as waterfowl habitat for each of three series of habitat maps were developed based on water distributed across the Central Valley and Suisun Marsh in California during October-March of 2014-15 through 2017-18. We used open water data (version without cloud-filling) publicly available on Point Blue Conservation's California Water Tracker web site and which Point Blue derived at 16-18 day intervals from mosaics of Landsat 8 imagery for the region including the Central Valley and Suisun Marsh. Each record in the data set represents a mosaic within a specific range of dates of imagery that together bound the Central Valley and Suisun Marsh spatial extent....
In this data set, records (rows) represent the distance between primary daytime roosts and night (feeding) locations of ducks marked with telemetry in California in years 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18, during October - March. Years 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18 represented drought, non-drought, and non-drought, respectively. Matchett and company (2020; see Larger Work section for citation) summarized this data set in figures E3 and E4 to compare distances moved among months, years, and for two regions (Suisun Marsh and California except Suisun Marsh). Matchett and company examined the effect of drought on distributions of ducks by evaluating differences in spatial distributions of duck locations within and among...
We used Point Blue Conservation Science's dynamic open-water dataset of water distribution and our telemetry data for duck locations to develop frequently updated habitat maps for the Central Valley and Suisun Marsh in California during October-March of 2014-15 through 2017-18. Telemetry data additionally was used to compare performance of each of three series of habitat maps produced. To create this tabular dataset, we intersected telemetry locations for ducks (vector point data) with habitat maps (raster mosaics) in a Geographic Information System (GIS) and attributed duck locations with map pixel values representing habitat, non-habitat, or unclassified (if data were missing). To develop maps of waterfowl habitat,...
