Climate drivers of rapid ecological change at the landscape scale over the last 21,000 years in the Middle and Southern Rockies, U.S.A.

Shelley Crausbay, Amanda Kissel, Patrick Freeman & Eric Stofferahn
These model objects are the outputs of three Boosted Regression Tree models (for three different time periods) to explore the role of climate change and variability in driving ecological change and transformation. Response variables were the proportion of sites in each ecoregion with peak rates of change at 100-year time steps. Predictor variables included temperature anomaly, temperature trend, temperature variability, precipitation anomaly, precipitation trend, precipitation variability and ecoregion, also at 100-yr time steps. Models focused...

Type and speed of vegetation transformations over the past 21,000 years in the Middle and Southern Rockies, U.S.A.

Shelley Crausbay & Amanda Kissel
This database integrates a list of vegetation transformations that occurred across the Southern and Middle Rockies since 21,000 years ago, the age of occurrence, the type of vegetation switch that occurred, whether the rates of vegetation change peaked at that time, and when applicable, the duration of peak rates of vegetation change.

Measures of end-user use of and level of involvement with the Southeast climate adaptation science center Phase 1 projects based on 2020-2021 web-based surveys

Amanda Hyman
This dataset consists of responses to a standardized, web-based survey of project principle investigators, end-users, and SE CASC leadership. 31 project PIs responded (97% response rate). We then surveyed potential users of the 28 remaining projects using Qualtrics and SE CASC leadership to garner information about project use. Potential users included employees from federal agencies, state agencies, universities, and nongovernmental organizations. From the 28 projects, we sent surveys to 208 users, of which, 81 responded...

Survey of participants in USGS-TNC Gulf Coast wetlands workshops 2017

Alison Meadow
This data is from a survey of participants in four workshops hosted by USGS researchers in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in communities along the Gulf Coast in 2017. The workshops were part of the Landscape conservation design project, funded separately by the USGS. The current project had no role in identifying or selected coastal managers with whom to speak; that was the responsibility of the Landscape conservation design project and occurred before the...

Climate and Weather Impacts to Wine Grapes in Arizona in 2018-2019 growing season as described by growers

Alison Meadow
In October 2019, as part of our collaboration with a project focused on nexus of climate and viticulture in Arizona, we helped hold two workshops focused on reviewing the 2018-2019 wine grape growing season in Arizona. Workshops were held in two of the main viticulture regions in Arizona: the Verde Valley and Cochise County. Twenty-four people attended the Yavapai County workshop; 9 vineyards were represented but a number of workshop participants were students not representing...

The role of landscape characteristics in climate-driven rapid ecological change over the last 21,000 years in the Middle and Southern Rockies, U.S.A.

Shelley Crausbay, Amanda Kissel, Patrick Freeman, Robert George & Eric Stofferahn
These model objects are the outputs of two Bayesian hierarchical models (one for the Middle Rockies and one for the Southern Rockies) to explore the role of landscape characteristics in climate-driven ecological change and transformation. We used the rate of change for each site at 100-yr time steps as the response variable, and included elevation, CHILI, aspect, slope, and TPI as fixed effects in the models, run separately for each ecoregion. We included a random...

Canopy Water Balance Input Data for 5 sites in Hawai'i from 2016-2019

Thomas Gimabelluca & Han Tseng
Measurements of fog, fog interception parameters, and climate variables such as wind, radiation, temperature, and humidity, along with vegetation data, to test a model to estimate CWI as a function of fog-water movement and vegetation characteristics.

Interview transcripts from meetings with coastal resource managers about data needs related to coastal wetlands and sea level rise

Alison Meadow
These three PDFs contain qualitative notes taken during focus group-style interviews in 2017 with coastal resource managers Grand Bay, AL; Port Aransas, TX; and Tampa Bay, FL about their data needs related to tidal wetlands and sea level rise and interest in working with USGS researchers to receive that data. The coastal managers were all engaged in conversations with USGS scientists as part of a separate project entitled Landscape conservation design for enhancing the adaptive...

Soil Moisture Data for the Red River and Rio Grande Basins from 2015-2019

Tyson Ochsner, Matthew Levi & Grant Snitker
Modeled soil moisture raster maps (4km-pixels) displaying volumetric water content (VWC) and fraction of available water (FAW) in 10-cm depth increments for the 2015-2019 period for the Red River and Rio Grande basins.

Canopy Water Balance Output Data for 5 sites in Hawai'i from 2016-2019

Thomas Gimabelluca & Han Tseng
The outputs of two versions of the Single-Layer Wet Canopy Water Balance model. Parameters include cloud water interception, evaporation of rainwater or fog water from wet canopy (interception evaporation), and canopy water storage.

Growth and photosynthesis or red maples subjected to drought in North Carolina

Steven Frank
These data were collected from 27 April 2017 through 4 Septmber 2017. Data are measurements of plant physiology collected using a LI-COR LI-6400XT Portable Photosynthesis System. Methods detailed in: Lahr, E.C., Backe, K.M. & Frank, S.D. Intraspecific variation in morphology, physiology, and ecology of wildtype relative to horticultural varieties of red maple (Acer rubrum). Trees 34, 603–614 (2020).

Survey of Participants in the Arizona Wine Industry in Summer 2021 for the purposes of understanding their data needs

Alison Meadow
This data is from a survey of participants in the Arizona wine industry conducted in 2021. Participants in the Arizona wine industry generally include wine grape growers, wine makers, winery owners, vineyard or winery employees, and viticulture students. The data were collected in order to inform a broader economic analysis of the Arizona wine industry, which had been requested by a number of industry members during engagement with University of Arizona and Arizona Cooperative Extension...

Maps of post-fire conifer recruitment from: Fire-catalyzed vegetation shifts in ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir forests of the western United States

Kimberley Davis
This dataset includes spatial projections of the post-fire recruitment index for ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) using climate data from different time periods (1980-1989, 1990-1999, 2000-2009, 2010-2014) and a future climate scenario of a global mean increase in temperature of two degrees Celsius. The post-fire recruitment index varies from 0 to 1 and represents the proportion of the first five years following wildfire that had climate suitable for regeneration of the given...

Calibrated Fog Gauge Data for 5 sites in Hawai'i from 2016-2019

Thomas Gimabelluca & Han Tseng
Data of a calibrated fog gauge at each of the five stations. Parameters include total fog water collection, wind-driven rain collection, fog-only water collection, cloud water flux, and cloud liquid water content.
