Crop coefficients for estimating evapotranspiration in the Rio Grande/Bravo basin in 2020

Jennifer Koch
This database provides crop coefficients and start and termination dates for more than 40 crops grown in the Rio Grande/Bravo basin. It was created drawing on a literature and dataset review covering resources from the State Agricultural Extension Services (Colorado State University, New Mexico State University, and Texas A&M University), the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture), AgriMet, and the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization). The database provides crop coefficients from plant emergence (or break dormancy...

Water Resources Management Database Rio Grande/Río Bravo 2020

Jennifer Koch
The Management Options Database synthesizes and documents a comprehensive set of management practices implemented by the water managers on behalf of a collective (e.g., municipal water systems, irrigation districts) or as individuals (e.g., farmers) to adapt to drought conditions in the Rio Grande/Río Bravo basin. This database provides input to implement the policies in the agent-based module of the ENVISION RGB integrated model (i.e., the range of possible decisions the agents can make in the...

Local demographic rates of four Eleutherodactylus frogs in Puerto Rico, 2017-2019

Jaime Collazo
We estimated the effect of microhabitat and microclimatic factors on occupancy, abundance and reproduction of four species of Eleutherodactylus frogs (E. wightmanae, E. brittoni, E. antillensis, E. coqui). Data consist of presence-non/presence data (binary), and physical (abiotic) and habitat (biotic) covariates collected at each of 48 survey stations (2017) and 35 (2018) along two altitudinal gradients in west-central Puerto Rico.

Hydrologic sensitivity to climate change and aspen mortality in Upper Sheep Creek, Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (21st century scenarios)

Adrienne Marshall
Hourly hydrometeorological data was collected over the 30-year period from 1984-2014 in Upper Sheep Creek, within the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed, Idaho, USA. These data were used to calibrate the one-dimensional Simultaneous Heat and Water (SHAW) model. These data and the SHAW calibration have previously been described in multiple publications, particularly Chauvin et al 2011 and Flerchinger et al 2016. In the dataset presented here, climate scenarios have been constructed, applied to the historic record,...

Past and Future Climate Reconstructions for the Chisos, Davis and Guadalupe Mountains, Texas, USA

Dylan Schwilk Helen Poulos
Climate summary variables reconstructed in high resolution for past and projected futures. We took detailed microclimate measurements across three mountain ranges in West Texas to identify key topographical drivers of microclimate variation, and modeled future fine scale climate as a function of topography and projected regional weather across multiple future scenarios.

Tree growth data, ISSR tree genetics data, and monotorpene concentration data relating to mountain pine beetle attacks on whitebark pine at Vipond Park, Montana, 2017-2018

Diana Six
Abstract This record contains three zip files of data. First, for the file treeGeneticISSRData, the data consists of genetic ISSR band scores. Two sets of trees were sampled for genetic analyses - large trees surviving mountain pine beetle and 'general population' trees that we just a little to small to be attacked that served as a proxy for the population without beetle selection. Second, for the file Treegrowthdata_, this dataset includes files that record tree...

Hawaii statewide drought frequency maps based on the Standardized Precipitation Index maps for each decade 1920-2012

Abby Frazier
Hawaii statewide drought frequency maps based on the Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) maps for each decade from 1920-2012 (last decade includes 2000-2012) for all 10 SPI periods. For each decade, sum the number of months with SPI < 0, SPI < -1, SPI < -1.5, and SPI < -2 and divide by the total number of months to create "frequency" grids statewide based on these four thresholds. Values range from 0 to 1. Outputs are...

Bruce Lauber & Richard Stedman
These datasets consists of responses to a standardized, web-based survey of partners and potential partners of the regional Climate Adaptation Science Center (CASC). An initial sample for the survey was compiled from science producers and science users identified by the CASC, Landscape Conservation Cooperative staff and steering committee members with regions that overlapped with the CASC's region, and members of the AFWA Climate Science Committee. The survey documented the ways in which partners were engaged...

Drought in the U.S.-Affiliated Pacific Islands: A Multi-level Assessment

Dan A. Polhemus
Although tropical Pacific islands are generally perceived as having wet climates, they are vulnerable to periodic episodes of drought. This literature review strives to establish a base of information relating to such drought events in the U. S.- affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI), a vast expanse of the oceanic Pacific larger than the North American continent, spanning five time zones and the International Date Line roughly between the southern Tropic of Capricorn across the equator to...

Data and Metadata for 'A regional analysis of long-term gray and harbor seal stranding events' and the seasonal migrants

Michelle Staudinger & Katherine Jones
NOAA’s Greater Atlantic Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network Database was examined for its utility as a potential long-term time series for the evaluation of phenological patterns and shifts. Although records from stranding events represent sick or injured animals, these data have been found to be reasonably comparable to survey data and provide useful information on species’ distribution, abundance, and foraging ecology (Maldini et al., 2005; Staudinger et al., 2014; Johnston et al., 2012, 2015). In...

Daily streamflow and reservoir water elevation data for Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas (2006-2099)

Cody Hudson & Wayne Kellogg
Daily streamflow and reservoir water elevation data for modeled locations in the Red River Basin. Values reported are for 18 different GCM (Global Climate Model) / RCP (Representative Concentration Pathway) / GDM Downscaling scenarios. Climate data from each scenario was input into a Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) model, that output flow values. These values were then input into RiverWare, to determine the impacts on regulated flows, lake levels and water availability. RiverWare was used for...
