This dataset represents the soil order from SSURGO and STATSGO soil descriptions for soil map units in the state of southern Alaska (b) that lie within the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative.
Soils with high smectite content in the Oregon portion of the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative
This dataset represents the soils with high smectite (high activity clays) concentrations content in the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative.
Boundaries of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives participating in the Multi-LCC Mississippi River Basin/Gulf Hypoxia Initiative.
Protecting the nation’s natural and cultural resources and landscapes is essential to sustaining our quality of life and economy. Native fish and wildlife species depend on healthy rivers, streams, wetlands, forests, grasslands and coastal areas in order to thrive. Managing these natural and cultural resources and landscapes, however, has become increasingly complex. Land use changes and impacts such as drought, wildfire, habitat fragmentation, contaminants, pollution, invasive species, disease and a rapidly changing climate can threaten human populations as well as native species and their habitats. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are public-private partnerships that recognize these challenges transcend...
Texas Tech University will conduct quantitative and predictive analysis of the connectivity of isolated desert “wetlands”, that include tinajas, the name for eroded pools in bedrock, for 20 wildlife species over the Sonoran desert ecoregion. Potential loss of wetlands due to climate change will also be studied to identify high value areas that can be prioritized for future restoration efforts and targeted for better management practices.Target species for landscape connectivity analysis include:Colorado River toad ( Incilius alverius )American bullfrog ( Lithobates catesbeianus )Chiricahua leopard frog ( Lithobates chiricahuensis )Lowland leopard frog ( Lithobates yavapaiensis )Couch’s spadefoot ( Scaphiopus couchii...
Forest patches, minimum size - 1 acre, within the Mississippi River Basin, derived from the 2011 National Land Cover Dataset and used to evaluate landscape context of riparian cropland.
Soil water storage capacity (AWS in mm at 0.5 m depth) for the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative- northern California, USA
This dataset represents the soil water storage capacity (AWS in mm at 0.5 m depth) from SSURGO and STATSGO soil descriptions for soil map units in the state of northern California that lie within the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative. Available Water Storage 0-50 cm - Weighted Average (centimeters). Available water storage (AWS). The volume of water that the soil, to a depth of 50 centimeters, can store that is available to plants. It is reported as the weighted average of all components in the map unit, and is expressed as centimeters of water. AWS is calculated from AWC (available water capacity) which is commonly estimated as the difference between the water contents at 1/10 or 1/3 bar (field...
Soils with high iron layers in the California portion of the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative
This dataset respresents the soils with high iron content in the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative.
A Study of Climate Change Impacts on Water Quality and Internal Nutrient Recycling in Lake Mead, Arizona-Nevada
Southern Nevada Water Authority will add new modeling and analytical capabilities to tools developed as part of a previous WaterSMART Climate Analysis Tools Grant that assessed impacts of climate change on water quality and sediment transport in Lake Mead. Project results are intended to increase an understanding of how water quality characteristics and nutrient levels in Lake Mead may be affected by climate change.
This dataset covers the southern half of the Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative. It was aggregated and converted to raster by Conservation Biology Institute as part of a soil vulnerability study funded in part by the Southern Rockies LCC. The soil data come from a digital soil survey, the most detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. The information was prepared by digitizing maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely sensed and other information. This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and computerized attribute data. The map data are in a soil survey...
Soil temperature regime for the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative - northern California, USA
This dataset represents the soil temperature regimes from SSURGO and STATSGO soil descriptions for soil map units in the state of northern California that lie within the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative. Definition.—“Soil temperature” is the mean monthly soil temperature at the specified depth (the average of the daily high and daily low temperature for the month). Significance.—Soil temperature is important to many biological and physical processes that occur in the soil. Plant germination and growth are closely related to soil temperature. Cold soil temperatures effectively create a thermal pan in the soil. Roots cannot uptake moisture or nutrients below the threshold temperatures specific to...
Implementation opportunities (marginal and wet soils in addition to landscape context) for crop and grazing land within the riparian zone - Lower Illinois River Basin (HU4-0713)
HUC-14 Watershedsd for the Island of St. John. Because of the size of the USVI, most planning is done at HUC-14 level.
Aquifers of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands
This data set represents the extent, approximate location and type of wetlands and deepwater habitats in the United States and its Territories. These data delineate the areal extent of wetlands and surface waters as defined by Cowardin et al. (1979). Certain wetland habitats are excluded from the National mapping program because of the limitations of aerial imagery as the primary data source used to detect wetlands. These habitats include seagrasses or submerged aquatic vegetation that are found in the intertidal and subtidal zones of estuaries and near shore coastal waters. Some deepwater reef communities (coral or tuberficid worm reefs) have also been excluded from the inventory. These habitats, because of their...
Puerto Rico Barrios (Boroughs), or sub-municipal divisions.
In the 1980s, The Puerto RIcan legislature designated a "greenbelt of agricultural lands to create a buffer zone around the El Yunque Forest." The purpose of the buffer zone was to provide a transitional area from the Forest to the land outside, so that urbanization and its impacts would not encroach upon the Forest. Since then, the buffer zone has decreased in size as development increased. The decrease in the buffer zone is due to government zoning exceptions, the result of pressure from developers, and some illegal development. A USDA Forest Service report indicates that El Yunque Forest ecosystem is increasingly at risk as urbanization in the buffer zone increases. El Yunque's ability to support wildlife will...
Implementation opportunities (marginal and wet soils in addition to landscape context) for crop and grazing land within the riparian zone - Wabash River Basin (HU4-0512)
The sustainability of natural and cultural resources and landscapes are important to quality of life and local economies. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) address large scale natural resource challenges that transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a networked approach to conservation— holistic, collaborative, and grounded in science – to ensure the sustainability of America’s land, water, wildlife and cultural resources. The Upper Midwest and Great Lakes LCC, established in 2010, is focused on a diverse range of fish, wildlife and other natural resources that transcend existing state and international borders including the Great Lakes, North America’s largest freshwater resource,...
