The Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data of the nearshore region of the North Pacific show temperature ranges in degrees C using points whose locations correspond to the centroids of AVHRR Pathfinder version 5 monthly, global, 4 km data set (PFSST V50). The pathfinder rasters are available from the Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC), hosted by NASA JPL. The data points in this dataset lie within a 20 km buffer from the GSHHS (Global Self-consistent, Hierarchical, High-resolution Shoreline) coastline. The GSHHS vector data are available from the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC). Furthermore, each point in the SST dataset is categorized by the ecoregion in which it is located. This...

A combination of focus groups and usability tests were used to explore the needs and preferences of a variety of NPLCC stakeholders as regards data management platform content, format, and features. This information was used to inform NPLCC decisions about how best to meet needs not currently met by LC MAP through adjustments or enhancements to LC MAP itself or by connecting stakeholders with other platforms or portals.

This theme shows the Key Watersheds that are located on BLM lands and adjacent Forest Service Lands, as identified during the Forest Ecosystem Management Assessment effort (Northwest Forest Plan - Record of Decision 1994). The initial mapping done in 1994 was a very generalized representation and was done prior to the development of the interagency standard 5th and 6th field watershed boundaries. The line work has been made coincident with the 5th and 6th field watershed lines where the Key Watershed Boundaries clearly intended to use a watershed as the boundary. District personnel have reviewed these edits to conform to the 5th and 6th field boundaries and have incorporated other edits to follow operationally identifiable...

This point shapefile approximates locations within 20 km of the North Pacific Coastline, as defined by the "World Country Boundaries (Generalized)" shapefile distributed by ESRI as part of their Data & Maps data series. They are based on raster data at 4 km resolution. Therefore there are between 3-5 points extending out from each location along the shoreline (at 4 km intervals).

Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are public-private partnerships composed of states, tribes, federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, universities, international jurisdictions, and others working together to address landscape and seascape scale conservation issues. LCCs inform resource management decisions to address broad-scale stressors-including habitat fragmentation, genetic isolation, spread of invasive species, and water scarcity-all of which are magnified by a rapidly changing climate. For further information go to https://www.fws.gov/science/catalog. The previous 2011 LCC Network Areas data is available at https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/52f2735ee4b0a6f0bd498c2f

Project Summary In September, 2011, The North Pacific Land Conservation Cooperative (NPLCC) awarded Ecotrust a grant to develop a conservation priorities tool intended to assist the NPLCC and other natural resource managers, individuals, and community organizations in accessing, understanding and visualizing a wide variety of data sets pertaining to aquatic and terrestrial species, anthropogenic threats and potential vulnerabilities to climate change for freshwater and forest ecosystems throughout the NPLCC geographic area. Over the course of the grant period, Ecotrust developed a custom, spatially explicit, on-line decision support tool that was designed to both visualize these data and to identify regional...

Under the Canadian Species at Risk Act (SARA), Garry oak (Quercus garryana) ecosystems are listed as ‘‘at-risk’’ and act as an umbrella for over one hundred species that are endangered to some degree. Understanding Garry oak responses to future climate scenarios at scales relevant to protected area managers is essential to effectively manage existing protected area networks and to guide the selection of temporally connected migration corridors, additional protected areas, and to maintain Garry oak populations over the next century. We present Garry oak distribution scenarios using two random forest models calibrated with down-scaled bioclimatic data for British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon based on 1961–1990...
This dataset was created in order to facilitate transboundary conservation work and research projects, by integrating land cover maps into a single dataset from Cape Caution, BC, to Yakutat Bay, AK. It includes three levels of land classification, site index, elevation, hydric soils (yes/no), karst (yes/no), primary and secondary species, size class, and volume class. It also includes a number of other important attributes from individual datasets, which were not crosswalked between the different areas.

Here we describe one conservation tool that will help to identify particularly significant river basins of the North Pacific for the conservation of salmon: the first Pacific-Rim wide assessment of salmon populations at a consistent scale. In conjunction with a scientific advisory panel and a peer review workshop we developed four criteria for the Pacific Salmon Conservation Assessment (PSCA) to provide an indication of aquatic ecosystem and salmon population resilience at the basin scale. These criteria are salmon abundance, diversity, hatchery influence, and landscape suitability. Highly abundant salmon populations have more “cushion” with which to absorb anthropogenic or natural disturbance (Quigley and...
The NPR basins were ranked according to regional patterns of environmental stress for salmon under current and projected future (to 2100) climate conditions. The basin rankings account for the relative abundance and distribution of freshwater habitats in each basin and include dynamic river flow and temperature simulations as indicators of water quality. A salmon stress index was developed based on temperature thresholds for spawning, incubation, and rearing for individual salmon species. The salmon stress ranking was coupled with the sub-watershed physical complexity ranking to develop a watershed vulnerability index for individual salmon species. Chinook and Coho rankings are highlighted below Each variable was...
We acquired, federated and curated approximately one million new observations to the Avian Knowledge Network. We used these new observations, in addition to millions of existing records, to model the distribution and abundance of 26 species of land birds in the southern portion of the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NPLCC) region including CA, OR and WA. The models were based on climate and modeled vegetation. Using the models we created maps of the distribution and abundance of each species for current (late 20th century) conditions and projected the models to future conditions (2070) based on five regional climate models. The bird models were also used to create maps of conservation priorities...

Crested (Aethia cristatella) and Least Auklets (Aethia pusilla) are crevice-nesting birds that breed in large mixed colonies at relatively few sites in the Aleutian Chain, Bering Sea, Gulf of Alaska and Sea of Okhotsk. Time-lapse imagery of nesting habitat was collected over the summers of 2010, 2012, and 2013 to assess use of the primary pre-eruption colony site. At-sea surveys collected relative abundance data to identify shifts in distributions of Crested and Least Auklets around Kasatochi and Koniuji Islands.

State of the Salmon GIS staff appended, cleaned, and clipped the basins to the North Pacific extent area. This coverage was then edited, by manual digitizing, checking accuracy against a 1:1,000,000 streams coverage, digital elevation models, and 4th field watershed boundaries where available. This process mostly entailed eliminating erroneous inclusion and exclusion of upper stream reaches within Hydro1k boundaries. When more detailed streams were consulted in the Pacific Northwest, Hydro1k basins could have been refined further and were in the cases when it affected distribution of salmonids at the time of processing (Summer 2004). This finer resolution stream data was not used extensively to maintain a consistent...
