U.S. States (Generalized) represents the 50 states and the District of Columbia of the United States.

This simple assessment raster is used to answer management questions (MQs) about where change agents (CAs) overlap with sensitive soils (SS) in the Central Great Basin and Range ecoregion. This is a basic footprint assessment of anthropogenic features (urban development, roads, etc) intersect with the areas that were modeled by NatureServe to represent nine types of sensitive soils. It does not model actual response or condition of the SS to the CAs. The data intersects two primary classes of information: The CAs consist of 19 classes which represent different types of human infrastructure on the landscape. Some types are easily defined, precise footprints (pipelines, roads, energy development areas) while others...

This report presents updated information about subsistence uses of fish, wildlife, and plant resources in 5 communities of southcentral Alaska -- Iliamna, Newhalen, Nondalton, Pedro Bay, and Port Alsworth. The Division of Subsistence of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game conducted the study in collaboration with the National Park Service and Stephen R. Braund & Associates. The Pebble Project is a proposed open pit mine located 18 miles to the northwest of Iliamna and 18 miles southwest of Nondalton. The potential development of the mine requires updated baseline information about subsistence harvests and uses. Information was collected through systematic household surveys and mapping interviews. Scoping meetings...

This data set contains distances between anthropogenic features and shrublands classified into three categories based on metrics from KEA tables in the Northwest Plains Ecoregion. Antrhropogenic fetures include roads, electrical transmission lines, housing density, wind turbine, and oil and gas wells, This data is intended for use at the ecoregional level and was derived from spatial environmental attributes and shrublands locations.

This dataset was used in the Northern Great Basin Rapid Ecoregional Assessment by BLM. No changes were made to the data but the dataset selected Nevada and clipped to the ecoregion boundary.

U.S. Cities represents locations for cities within United States with populations of 10,000 or greater (based on Census 2000 figures), all state capitals, and the national capital.This dataset was used in the Northern Great Basin Rapid Ecoregional Assessment by BLM. No changes were made to the data but the dataset reduced to only included certain cities/towns within the ecoregion.

This dataset contains values that specify different types of exclusion/inclusion for OHV use. This was generated by attaching an attribute to the CBI PAD-US v1.1.

Population range for each city/town. pop_5: 100,001 -1,000,000 U.S. Populated Place Points represents populated places with population projected for 2030 that include census designated places, consolidated cities, and incorporated places within United States identified by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Population range for each city/town. pop_4: 10,001 - 100,000 U.S. Populated Place Points represents populated places with population projected for 2030 that include census designated places, consolidated cities, and incorporated places within United States identified by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The dataset consists of transcriptions of interviews conducted with scientists and stakeholders who were involved in collaborative climate research projects funded by the Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center between 2014 and 2017. The participants were asked to reflect upon the engagement activities during the projects and provide any examples of use of the research evidence that emerged from the projects. The transcriptions have been stripped of any and all identifiable information, as is standard ethical practice.

Prior research has shown that sediment budgets, and therefore stability, of microtidal marsh complexes scale with areal unvegetated to vegetated marsh ratios (UVVR) suggesting these metrics are broadly applicable indicators of microtidal marsh vulnerability. This effort has developed the UVVR metric using Landsat 8 satellite imagery for the coastal areas of the contiguous United States (CONUS). These datasets provide annual averages of 1) developed, 2) vegetated, 3) unvegetated fractional covers and 4) an unvegetated to vegetated ratio (UVVR) at 30-meter resolution over the coastal areas of the contiguous United States for the years 2014-2018. Additionally, multi-year average values of vegetated fractional cover...

In the Great Plains, climate change is expected to result in more frequent and intense droughts, severe rainfall events, and heat waves. Adapting to changing conditions will require coordination in the research and observation capabilities of multiple organizations, institutions, and government programs. In light of these needs, researchers worked with federal, state, tribal, university, and non-governmental organization partners to (1) synthesize the current state of ecosystems in the Great Plains; (2) assess the ability of human and ecological communities in the region to adapt to climate change; and (3) develop a process to improve future assessments of the vulnerability of the region’s natural and cultural resources...

We routinely encounter uncertainty when we make decisions – from picking a new morning coffee to choosing where to live. Even decisions that are supported by science contain some level of remaining uncertainty. In the context of conservation and wildlife management, the potential for uncertainty to influence decisions is perhaps most obvious when we think about predicting how actions (or non-actions) will have lasting impacts into the future. Our abilities to precisely predict future climatic and ecological conditions and determine the exact consequences of our actions are, and will remain, limited. Conservation practitioners and land and wildlife managers must navigate these challenges to make science-informed...

This study set out to answer the question: “What data and modeling frameworks are needed to provide scientists reliable, climate-informed, water temperature estimates for freshwater ecosystems that can assist watershed management decision making?” To accomplish this, the study gathered existing stream temperature data, identified data gaps, deployed stream temperature monitoring devices, and developed and tested a stream temperature model that could be regionalized across the Northeast domain. We partnered with another funded project team, led by Jana Stewart at WI USGS to collect data from over 10,000 locations across the climate science center domain. This collection effort aided in identifying data gaps where...
