Geologic datasets for weights of evidence analysis in northeastWashington--3. Minerals-related permits on national forests, 1967to 1998
Permits to explore for and (or) develop mineral resources onFederal lands can be used to indicate locations and types ofmineral-related activities on national forests. Permits for theseactivities require filing of a Notice of Intent to conduct mineralexploration activities and (or) a Plan of Operation, ifsignificant land disturbance results. This compilation of noticesand plans for the Colville, Kaniksu, Okanogan, and Wenatcheenational forests between 1967 and 1998 is intended for use incombination with geologic and economic information to predictfuture mineral-related activities in the region.
This data set includes the value of mineral production by Statein the United States. The data represent commodities covered bythe National Minerals Information Center (MIT) of the U.S. Geological Survey.

Metal Industry Indicators (MII) is a monthly newsletter thatanalyzes and forecasts the economic health of fivemetal-processing industries: primary metals, steel, copper,primary and secondary aluminum, and aluminum mill products. TheMII presents composite leading and coincident indexes of a setof indicators that historically have proven to lead or coincidewith the major business cycle changes in these industries. Theindexes were developed in cooperation with the Center forInternational Business Cycle Research at Columbia University.Each month, these indexes are analyzed along with anyeconomy-wide occurrences that would affect the metalsindustries.Stone, Clay, Glass, and Concrete Products Industry Indicators(IMII)...

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...
