The “Hydroecology of Flowing Waters” project was initiated in 1998 with the aim to improve understanding of how stream and river corridors function naturally in ways that produce valuable ecosystem services (e.g. flood attenuation, carbon and nutrient storage and contaminant removal, habitat value for fish and wildlife, recreation). The research is increasingly focused on how aquatic ecosystem services can be better protected in the face of degradation resulting from accelerating land use and climate change. Central to the research is the investigation of interactions between physical and biological processes, e.g. how land use change affects hydraulics and channel geomorphology in ways that produce cascading...

The SARP Riparian Assessment analysis assesses the current condition of riparian habitat within a 30 meter buffers along streams and rivers throughout the SARP region and provides a baseline against which to measure future progress toward achieving riparian habitat conservation/restoration goals.

The NRP had its beginnings in the late 1950's. Since that time, the program has grown to encompass a broad spectrum of scientific investigations. The sciences of hydrology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, ecology, biology, geology, and engineering are used to gain a fundamental understanding of the processes that affect the availability, movement, and quality of the Nation's water resources. Results of NRP's long-term research investigations often lead to the development of new concepts, techniques, and approaches that are applicable not only to the solution of current water problems, but also to future issues that may affect the Nation's water resources. Basic tools of hydrology that have been developed by the...

The data contained in this report was compiled, modified, and analyzed for the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI) Integrated Assessment (IA). The WLCI is a long-term science based effort to assess and enhance aquatic and terrestrial habitats at a landscape scale in southwest Wyoming while facilitating responsible energy development through local collaboration and partnerships. The IA is an integrated synthesis and analysis of WLCI resource values based on best available data and information collected from multiple agencies and organizations. It is a support tool for landscape-scale conservation planning and evaluation, and a data and analysis resource that can be used for addressing specific management...

This synthesized results data set is a normalized unit-less layer represent the varying levels of importance of land parcels associated with agriculture in the WLCI region. This raster represents a normalized sum for 9 spatial data sets: irrigated acreage in wet years, irrigated acreage in dry years, land classification for pasture/rangeland/ production, important grazing and calving areas, buffered locations of water 'guzzlers,' an elk depredation claims index, a mule deer depredation claims index, an antelope depredation claims index, an index based on the age of agricultural buildings associated with land parcels. These data represent an initial step towards spatially identifying lands that represent greater...
Human activities from climate change to waste discharges to water management are modifying ecosystems across the earth, often in ways that are not well understood. This project addresses the problem of better understanding changes in aquatic ecosystems as driven by human disturbances interacting with natural processes. More specifically, the project studies a) the mechanisms of biological and ecological response to stressors such as metal contamination, nutrient enrichment, physical habitat alteration, climate change, and introduced species, and b) the influence of species, communities, and ecosystem processes on the distribution, transport, and fate of chemical contaminants (e.g., metals, nutrients). Most studies...

This dataset represents numerical values denoting a binary identification of whether a particular condition is met. In this case, values represent whether a given land parcel (represented as a pixel) is classified as "Hay/Pasture" or "Cultivated Crops" (pixels will be assigned a value of 1), or not (all pixels not in one of these categories will be assigned a value of 0). This raster is one of 9 inputs used to calculate the "Normalized Importance Index."

The values in this raster are unit-less scores ranging from 0 to 1 that represent normalized dollars per acre damage claims from antelope on Wyoming lands. This raster is one of 9 inputs used to calculate the "Normalized Importance Index."
