This spreadsheet compiles all longitudinal survey data collected along Redwood Creek during the thirty year period, 1977-2007. Long-term surveys were conducted along three reaches of Redwood Creek: Elam to Hayes creek reach, Dolason to Wier (Emerald) creek reach, and Bond to 44 creek reach. Longitudinal streambed surveys follow the channel thalweg (deepest point) and are useful in documenting aquatic habitat conditions (for example, pool depth distribution, percent length in riffles vs pools). Each of these surveys was conducted in the summer months of each recorded year and took about two weeks to complete.

Background information. The South Canyon project area consists of 121,000 acres within the Upper Sevier River Watershed in southern Utah. This watershed is ranked as a high priority for restoration because of degraded riparian and upland vegetation and erosion, the presence of hazardous fuels placing communities at increased risk of wildfire, and degraded greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) and mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) habitat because of the expansion and infilling of pinyon and juniper. In particular, this project was designed to reestablish and maintain sagebrush semi-desert habitat, open travel corridors, and provide benefits to sage-grouse and mule deer within and immediately adjacent to the...

Background information. The Duncan Creek restoration area is located in Iron County, Utah. This area provides important habitat for mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), and an increasing number of homes are located in the wildland-urban interface. Restoration efforts are focused on both habitat improvement and fire/fuels reduction. Restoration in this area is ongoing; this case study focuses on restoration activities that occurred primarily in 2012. During this period, restoration was accomplished on 2,080 acres of public and private lands. The project was funded by a variety of private, State, and Federal cooperators, including the Bureau of Land Management, Mule Deer Foundation, National Wild Turkey Federation, and...

This data set compiles all cross-sectional survey data collected along Redwood Creek during the sixty year period, 1953-2013 (note that no surveys were conducted between 1954 and 1972). Cross-sectional surveys are transects perpendicular to channel flow and are used to document sedimentation and erosion (scour and fill) in river channel beds and on streambanks.

This dataset contains data used in the associated publication in the International Journal of Remote Sensing. The geodatabase contains four feature classes: AOI, MajorZone, MinorZone, and Green2007. Publication can be found at https://doi.org/10.1080/01431161.2018.1437297. Publication abstract: Watershed restoration efforts seek to rejuvenate vegetation, biological diversity, and land productivity at Cienega San Bernardino, an important wetland in southeastern Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico. Rock detention and earthen berm structures were built on the Cienega San Bernardino over the course of four decades, beginning in 1984 and continuing to the present. Previous research findings show that restoration supports...

The Kanab Creek Project Area encompasses 130,000 acres in southern Utah. This project area receives National attention because it is home to the Paunsagunt mule deer herd which are prized by trophy hunters, and because it supports the southernmost population of greater sage grouse within the western United States. One of the focuses of this project area has been to conduct treatments that cross jurisdictional boundaries, by working closely with private landowners, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and Utah’s Watershed Restoration Initiative, to provide landscape-level benefits for sage grouse. Telemetry data show that sage grouse are actively using older treatment areas, and newer treatments will expand...

Dr. Richard Janda of the USGS began a channel monitoring program in Redwood Creek in northern coastal California in 1973. The USGS continued this work through 2013, when the Research Geologist, Dr. Mary Madej retired. This effort produced 40 years of channel change data in rivers that were disrupted by severe erosion following timber harvest of old-growth redwood forests, a portion of the program's data (plus 1953 data) has been preserved in this data release. Original field surveys documented bank erosion, aggradation, and degradation at 60 cross-sectional transects at annual or biannual timesteps. Three river reaches also have long-term longitudinal channel bed surveys which document the distribution and development...

Background information. The South Beaver area encompasses 145,000 acres in Beaver County in southern Utah and contains public, State, and private lands. The area is crucial mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) winter habitat, and it contains important elk (Cervus elaphus) habitat and occupied sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) habitat (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 2013). Nearby population growth and the construction of Interstate 15 have increased the importance of this area for wildlife, but the encroachment of pinyon and juniper have nearly eliminated any possible use of this area by sage-grouse and greatly reduced the amount of sagebrush and other forage available for deer and elk. Restoration in this area...
