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.
Tag, migration, and fate data of adult radio-tagged Chinook and sockeye salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River Basin 1996-2014Matthew Keefer, Michael Jepson, Christopher Caudill & Tami Clabough
These datasets provide information on radiotelemetry tagging, migration and fate of adult spring, summer, and fall Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), sockeye salmon (O. nerka) and steelhead (O. mykiss) in the Columbia River Basin, 1996-2014. The tagging database provides tagging metrics that include date collected at time of capture and release, size, fin clips, condition, injuries, marks or tags, release site, etc. The migration databases includes complete migration histories and integrates all coded radio detections, PIT-tag...
The primary objective of this study was to provide a feasibility assessment for estimating snow interception volume with terrestrial laser scanning (TLS), providing information on challenges and opportunities for future research. During the winters of 2017 and 2018, intercepted snow masses were continuously measured for two model trees suspended from load-cells. Simultaneously, autonomous terrestrial lidar scanning (ATLS) was used to develop volumetric estimates of intercepted snow.
