Maps Showing Inundation Depths, Ice-Rafted Erratics, and Sedimentary Facies of Late Pleistocene Missoula Flood in the Willamette Valley, Oregon
This digital dataset, compiled from previously published andunpublished data sources, contains a personal geodatabase andraster data of features related to the repeated inundation of theWillamette Valley and Portland basin by Missoula Flood waters inLate Pleistocene time. The feature classes contained within theWill_Valley geodatabase are called 'erratics', representing thelocations of ice-rafted erratics; 'contours', representinginundation levels associated with stratigraphic evidence ofrepeated floodings; and 'geology', representing the generaldistribution of Missoula Flood deposits. A stand-alone tablewithin the geodatabase contains geologic unit descriptions forthe geology polygons contained in the 'geology'...
Observations of snow depth and meteorological variables in forests and nearby open areas at field sites in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, USA
Snow and meteorological observations were collected over a range of water years (WY) by three research institutions and by citizen scientists to characterize forest effects on snow processes across the Pacific Northwest, USA. Fourteen total study sites cover the western slopes and crest of the Cascade Range in WA and OR, and central and northern ID. Each study location includes one or more paired forest and open area in which to compare snow observations. A range of forest canopy densities and data collection strategies are represented, including paired manual snow courses, snow pits, automated sensors, and time-lapse images of snow measurement poles. Analysis and synthesis of all of these sites are presented in...
This digital dataset was compiled from newly released U.S.Geological Survey 10-meter digital elevation model (DEM) data,along with stream and transportation coverages previouslypublished on the internet. This report consists of a digitalrepresentation of the physiography of the Willamette Valley.Contained in this dataset is: 1) 10-meter DEM data for the entireWillamette Valley; 2) the ARC/INFO grids used to create the colorshaded-relief and gray scale shaded-relief images; 3) thenecessary data ARC/INFO data to used to plot these data; and 4)several reports detailing the data formats (this docuement) andproducers used to create these datasets. The scale of theoriginal 10-meter DEM data should not be violated. Any...
