There are few resources that provide managers cross-scale information for planning climate adaptation strategies for species and taxa at risk. Appropriate allocation of resources requires an understanding of mechanisms influencing a species’ risk to global change. Dr. Griffis-Kyle will produce a manuscript for peer-reviewed publication and create content for web pages that can be included on the Desert LCC website that provide modules on amphibian climate adaptation strategies. This work is associated with addressing Desert LCC Critical Management Question 4: Physiological Stress of Climate Change and follows a webinar that Dr. Griffis-Kyle presented for the Desert LCC’s CMQ 4 team, titled “Climate and Desert Amphibian...
Rock geochemistry from samples collected by IGS geologists and retired geologists. Also present are rock geochemical analyses by retired USGS geologists. Includes a geochemical database and web application developed in 2015 to assist with delivery from the IGS website.
PhenoCams deployed in Kansas, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa
The NC CSC has collaborated with the USGS AmericaView program to deploy cameras that will record phenology throughout the region. Although, not all cameras were deployed throught AmericaView, they were deployed at the following sites: Ashland Bottoms, Kansas Bangtail Study Area in Bozeman, Montana Central Plains Experimental Range, Colorado Grand River Grasslands, Iowa Grand Teton National Park National Elk Refuge, Wyoming Nine Mile Prairie, University of Nebraska, Nebraska Oakville Prairie, North Dakota Poudre Learning Center, Colorado Sagebrush Steppe, Wyoming Earth Resources Observation and Science Center, South Dakota
The Blueprint 2020 Data Gallery is a website dedicated to the Blueprint 2020 spatial data. This website is located on the South Atlantic Blueprint Atlas. On this website, users can explore the Blueprint 2020 spatial data as well as the spatial data used to create Blueprint 2020. This website features an interactive mapping feature so that users who do not have access to desktop GIS can explore the spatial data.
The Bedrock Core Information System interactive map illustrates important reference information about 1,155 cores in the IGWS bedrock core archive at a glance, including the spatial location, IGWS reference number, total depth below the land surface captured by the core, top bedrock unit penetrated and depth to the top of that unit, and bottom bedrock unit penetrated and depth to the bottom of that unit.
Evaluation of Climate Change Impacts for the Southwest U.S. and Northern MexicoTool helps land managers visualize the projected impacts of a changing climate on birds and habitats.Birds are closely linked to climate and vegetation. Because of this, they can provide early warnings of broader changes to come. PLuMA is an interactive, online tool that allows users to: Identify climate change impacts Focus on conservation and adaptation priorities Highlight priority locations for monitoring, habitat restoration, and protection Determine priority species for monitoring Build capacity for collaboration across institutions and bordersHow will changing climates impact the birds and habitats of the southwestern U.S. and...
