Trade Codes Related to the Lithium-Ion Battery Supply Chain for the United States, the European Union, and the People's Republic of China
This dataset presents information concerning 8- and 10-digit trade codes related to the rechargeable lithium-ion battery (LIB) supply chain for the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the European Union, and the United States as classified by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) rulings. Note that this dataset is not intended to be a complete or comprehensive list of trade codes for the LIB supply chain; rather, it presents trade codes from the PRC and the EU that more granularly classify products related to LIB supply chain in comparison to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). CBP rulings are included to indicate existing classification decisions for relevant products related to the LIB...
U.S.-Side Principal Economic Indicators For the International Joint Commission Lake Champlain Richelieu River Study Project (2022)
General Abstract/Purpose (70 words): Data were collected to assist in cost-benefit analysis of flood mitigation actions that could be taken by the U.S. and Canada to prevent structural damage and associated costs and losses in future flood conditions, including conditions worse than the historical record flooding in spring of 2011. Data were commissioned to revise or fill gaps in estimates from structural damage modeling software commonly used for depth-damage economic assessments of flood impacts. The Summary text that immediately follows this introductory sentence offers overview information, but also includes context and detail that is not present in the Word document ("Principal Indicator Combo SET - REVIEW...
Predicted Likelihood of Grassland to Cropland Conversion in the U.S. Northern Plains and Prairies Given Climate Change
The purpose of this project was to estimate and map the probability that grassland converts to cropland in the northern plains and prairie region given potential climate change. This region provides critical breeding and migratory habitat for waterfowl and other wetland-dependent species, and is also a highly productive agricultural region. Generally, the regional effects projected by climate models are increasing temperatures and more variable precipitation, which could provide incentives for private landowners to convert native and managed grassland to intensive cropland. Conversion of grassland to cropland can result in habitat loss for dependent species and the degradation of a range of ecosystem services. If...
