Coalbed methane is one of the most important and valuable natural resources in the Western United States. The natural gas that results from CBM development is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, and the extensive domestic supply makes it a central element of the national goal of a secure supply of energy. Demand for natural gas will continue to grow and CBM will play an increasingly larger role in meeting that demand. CBM production has expanded tremendously over the past decade, and the rapidity with which development has expanded has resulted in stresses and tension in affected communities. Development of this important energy resource must be balanced with a number of other important goals of protecting water,...

This map represents the change between 1971-2000 and 2071-2100 in the annual peak fraction of total live vegetation carbon held in herbaceous plants, as simulated by the model MC1 under the CSIRO Mk3 future climate projection and A2 anthropogenic emissions scenario. The range of data values is from -0.741 to +0.999. The mean value is +0.107. Data values are calculated as GFRAC(2071-2100) minus GFRAC(1971-2000). GFRAC data is from MC1 version B60. The dynamic global vegetation model MC1 (e.g. Bachelet et al. 2001) was used to simulate vegetation dynamics, associated carbon and nitrogen cycle, water budget, and wild fire impacts at two study sites in eastern Oregon (Deschutes and Fremont-Winema National Forests)...

Land management practices often directly alter vegetation structure and composition, but the degree to which ecological processes such as herbivory interact with management to influence biodiversity is less well understood. We hypothesized that intensive forest management and large herbivores have compounding effects on early-seral plant communities and plantation establishment (i.e., tree survival and growth), and the degree of such effects is dependent on the intensity of management practices. We established 225 m2 wild ungulate (deer and elk) exclosures nested within a manipulated gradient of management intensity (no-spray Control, Light herbicide, Moderate herbicide and Intensive herbicide treatments), replicated...

Community protected areas of the project areas of Foundation for This map shows the community protected areas of Foundation for Ecological Security (FES) in different States. It provides the details on the protection, tenure type, village institution, extent of area being protected, agency supporting the protection etc. An attempt has been made by FES to map these community protected areas using GPS and GIS to begin with its own project locations. The larger agenda is to campaign for documenting these community efforts systematically partnering with other agencies, individuals, academia etc. in this effort. IBP is a good platform to participate and contribute towards this and document the rich protection and conservation...
We assessed options for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation in the US Great Lakes States, a region heavily dependent on coal-fired power plants. A proposed 600 MW power plant in northern Lower Michigan, USA provided context for our evaluation. Options to offset fossil CO2 emissions by 20% included biomass fuel substitution from (1) forest residuals, (2) short-rotation woody crops, or (3) switchgrass; (4) biologic sequestration in forest plantations; and (5) geologic sequestration using CO2 capture. Review of timber product output data, land cover data, and expected energy crop productivity on idle agriculture land within 120 km of the plant revealed that biomass from forestry residuals...

The project area consists of an approximately 600-mile long riparian corridor that includes the lower Colorado River from the Southerly International Border with Mexico north to Lake Mead, the entire shoreline of Lake Mead, the Virgin River from Lake Mead to Little Field Arizona, the Colorado River from Lake Mead to Separation Rapid in Grand Canyon, the Bill Williams from Lake Havasu to Alamo Lake, and approximately nine miles of the Lower Gila River. The total area was 1,790 square miles. Riparian vegetation classification was conducted for the entire study area based on Anderson-Ohmart and additional classes were added (AG, OW, SOW, BW, UD, and NC) to capture non-riparian features. Vegetation classification was...

USGS developed The National Map (TNM) Gazetteer as the Federal and national standard (ANSI INCITS 446-2008) for geographic nomenclature based on the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The National Map Gazetteer contains information about physical and cultural geographic features, geographic areas, and locational entities that are generally recognizable and locatable by name (have achieved some landmark status) and are of interest to any level of government or to the public for any purpose that would lead to the representation of the feature in printed or electronic maps and/or geographic information systems. The dataset includes features of all types in the United States, its associated areas, and Antarctica,...

The National Park Service (NPS), in conjunction with the Biological Resources Division (BRD) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), has implemented a program to "develop a uniform hierarchical vegetation methodology" at a national level. The program will also create a geographic information system (GIS) database for the parks under its management. The purpose of the data is to document the state of vegetation within the NPS service area during the 1990's, thereby providing a baseline study for further analysis at the Regional or Service-wide level. The vegetation units of this map were determined through stereoscopic interpretation of aerial photographs supported by field sampling and ecological analysis. The vegetation...

Idaho communities at risk from wildfire, as listed in the Federal Register (August 17,2001). Assist land managers in prioritizing areas that would benefit from hazardous fuels reduction and community assistance programs. Listing is intended to focus management on priority areas, but does not determine whether a particular community receives funding. This dataset was used in the "Idaho Interagency Assessment of Wildland Fire Risk to Communities, 2006" to derive Communities At Risk From Wildland Fire of Idaho - Map 6B. It has also been used in other BLM planning efforts such as Resource Management Plans, Fire Management Plans, and NEPA analysis.
