Data from: Boosts in leaf-level photosynthetic capacity aid Pinus ponderosa recovery from wildfire

Kelsey Bryant, Hyojung Kwon, Crystal Kolden, Jeffrey Stenzel, Justin Mathias, Laurel Lynch & Tara Hudiburg
Forests mitigate climate change by sequestering massive amounts of carbon, but recent increases in wildfire activity are threatening carbon storage. Currently, our understanding of wildfire impacts on forest resilience and the mechanisms controlling post-fire recovery remains unresolved due to a lack of empirical data on mature trees in natural settings. Here, we quantify the physiological mechanisms controlling carbon uptake immediately following wildfire in mature individuals of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), a wide-spread and canopy-dominant tree...

Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer Reasonably Anticipated Future Need Study Data

Mark Solomon & Michael Foushee
Data used in the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer Reasonably Anticipated Future Need (RAFN) study. Provides current and future service areas of water purveyors, city ACI, parcel data and land use data for the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer RAFN study area. These data were created for the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer RAFN study to aid in the analysis of current water demand, to assist in mediation of water boundaries, and to help plan for future water needs.

, , Jo Ellen Force, Lisette P. Waits, Kate Cleary, Paul Rhoades, Sara M. Galbraith, Amanda L. Bentley Brymer, Michael O'Rourke, Sanford D. Eigenbrode, Bryan Finegan, , Nicole Sibelet & Joseph D. Holbrook
A survey of 22 doctoral students enrolled in the University of Idaho Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program. The survey was administered online, responses were anonymous, and the response rate was 100%. Survey metrics included both Likert-scale and open-ended questions. Likert- scale metrics included a self-assessment of student interdisciplinary communication skills prior to and three to four years after joining the program, and asked participants to rate the importance of elements of the...

Data from: Building a bridge between adaptive capacity and adaptive potential to understand responses to environmental change

Travis Seaborn
Adaptive capacity is a topic at the forefront of environmental change research with roots in both social, ecological, and evolutionary science. It closely related to the evolutionary biology concept of adaptive potential. In this systematic literature review we: 1) Summarize the history of these topics and related fields; 2) Assess relationship(s) between the concepts among disciplines and the use of the terms in climate change research, and evaluate methodologies, metrics, taxa biases, and the geographic...

The microbial associates of precipitation over four seasons, at three locations in the United States

Ken Aho, C.F. Weber, J. T. Werth, A. L. H. Bayless-Edwards, R. Joyce, B. C. Christner, K. Failor, B. A. Vinatzer, D. G. Schmale III & C. E. Morris
These data were used in a paper accepted in Ecological Monographs on 17 September 2019, entitled "Spatiotemporal patterns of microbial composition and diversity in precipitation", hereafter Aho et al. (in press). Microbes in the atmosphere have broad ecological impacts, including the potential to trigger precipitation through species and strains that act as ice nucleation particles. To characterize spatiotemporal trends of microbial assemblages in precipitation we sequenced 16S (bacterial) and 18S (fungal) rRNA gene amplicon libraries...

Idaho Dairy Industry's Vulnerability to Long-Term Drought

Alycia Bean
This presentation is a summary of some key findings of water rights and their spatial distribution according to priority date and water use code within the Magic Valley in Idaho. With a look at the alfalfa growth in the region coupled with climate change in an already over allocated region in the semi-arid southern region in Idaho, this research examines the potential vulnerability of Idaho's booming dairy industry to long term drought.

Coastal Cutthroat Trout Locations

Kitty Griswold, Brett Holycross, Van Hare & Kate Sherman
This dataset contains observations of Coastal Cutthroat Trout (CCT), as compiled by the Coastal Cutthroat Trout Interagency Committee and the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) GIS Center, as well as locations where biologists have provided input where they believe the species to be present, based on professional judgement or other, nonobservation data. Data come from a wide variety of state, federal, tribal, private, and nonprofit organizations, and were collected in support of a range-wide...

Pocatello, Idaho Historic Orthoimagery for 1963 (~1 meter resolution)

Donna Delparte & Brock Lipple
Pocatello, Idaho historical orthomosaic for 1963 was created by collecting, scanning, merging and georectifying historic photography of Pocatello. The total spatial error is less than 1 meter. These historical orthomosaic images were derived using SfM (Structure-from-motion photogrammetry). SfM uses a series of overlapping images aligned to form a 3D representation. Classification resulted in raster and vector data with discrete classes grouped into objects located in the urban corridor of Pocatello. High-resolution aerial photography of the...

Data from: Forest carbon emission sources are not equal: putting fire, harvest, and fossil fuel emissions in context

Kristina Bartowitz, Eric Walsh, Jeffrey Stenzel, Crystal Kolden & Tara Hudiburg
Climate change has intensified the scale of global wildfire impacts in recent decades. To help policymakers and managers avoid these unintended carbon consequences and to present carbon emission sources in the same context, we calculate western US forest fire carbon emissions and compare them with harvest and fossil fuel emissions over the same timeframe. We find that forest fire carbon emissions are on average only 6% of anthropogenic fossil fuel emissions (FFE) over the past...

Redband Trout Stream Temperature Data for Big Jacks, Duncan, Little Jacks, Upper Mann and Keithly Creeks 2019-2022

Ernest Keeley, Anna Ringelman, Tyler Breech & Alexander Wooding
Stream temperature data utilized for Redband Trout habitat monitoring, habitat suitability modeling, and bioenergetics modeling at Big Jacks, Duncan, Little Jacks, Upper Mann and Keithly Creeks Idaho USA. All streams except Little Jacks Creek have three-100 meter sampling reaches (Low, Mid, Top); Little Jacks Creek only has two-100 meter sampling reaches (Low and Top). Temperature data loggers (HOBO Pendant® Temperature/Alarm Data Logger, UA-001-08, Cape Cod, Massachusetts) were deployed in each sample reach and were set...

Salmon River RCC Benthic Invertebrate Data

The data presented here represent the benthic macroinvertebrate data collected in 1976 and 1977 along the Salmon River mainstem. These data were part of the original river continuum concept (RCC) project. Seven sites were sampled seasonally over the two year period. Four sites on the upper Salmon River mainstem (i.e., Camp, Smiley, Obsidian, and Casino) were sampled in March and July of 1976. Four sites on the mid to lower Salmon River were sampled in...

Downscaled Climate Model Output for the Western United States from IPCC AR4 Scenarios [Multivariate Adaptive Constructed Analog (MACA) Method]

John Abatzoglou
This data series contains 540 temporal datasets. Wildfire adheres to meteorological enablers and drivers across a spectrum of timescales. However, a majority of downscaling methods are ill suited for wildfire application due the lack of daily timescales and variables such as humidity and winds that are important for fuel flammability and fire spread. Two statistical downscaling methods, the daily Bias-Corrected Spatial Downscaling (BCSD) and the Multivariate Adapted Constructed Analogs (MACA), that directly incorporate daily data...

Downscaled Climate Model Output for the Salmon River Basin, Idaho from WCRP CMIP3 Scenarios used in IPCC AR4 [Delta Method]

This data series contains 336 temporal datasets. These data are are climate model outputs, primarily precipitation and temperature. They have been bias-corrected and spatially downscaled (BCSD) to 12-km by Maurer et al. (2007) using the CMIP3 climate model data. These monthly products are available from this link (http://gdo-dcp.ucllnl.org/downscaled_cmip3_projections/) which we temporally disaggregated to a daily time step using the Delta method. This temporal disaggregation involved the following steps. This included a random picking of a...
