    Spatial Modeling for Resources Framework (SMRF) was developed at the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) in Boise, ID, and was designed to increase the flexibility of taking measured weather data and distributing the point measurements across a watershed.

    Automated Water Supply Model (AWSM)

      Automated Water Supply Model (AWSM) was developed at the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Boise, ID, to streamline the workflow used to forecast the water supply of multiple water basins.

        Data from: Characterization of Adult Transcriptomes from the Omnivorous Lady Beetle Coleomegilla maculata Fed Pollen or Insect Egg Diet

          Expressed genes from two individual sibling specimens of *Coleomegilla maculata* (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae). One individual was fed only insect eggs as an adult, and one was fed only pollen as an adult. Two sequenced samples, total RNA from a single individual adult specimen of *Coleomegilla maculata*, a beneficial lady beetle common in agroecosystems and native to North America. One sample was an adult fed only insect eggs (carnivore diet) and one sample was an adult fed only pollen (plant-based diet); insects were reared from the same egg mass (siblings), fed identical diet while in larval stage.

          Data from: Agro-environmental consequences of shifting from nitrogen- to phosphorus-based manure management of corn.

            This experiment was designed to measure greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes and related agronomic characteristics of a long-term corn-alfalfa rotational cropping system fertilized with manure (liquid versus semi-composted separated solids) from dairy animals. Different manure-application treatments were sized to fulfill two conditions: (1) an application rate to meet the agronomic soil nitrogen requirement of corn (“N-based” without manure incorporation, more manure), and (2) an application rate to match or to replace the phosphorus removal by silage corn from soils (“P-based” with incorporation, less manure). In addition, treatments tested the effects of liquid vs. composted-solid manure, and the effects of chemical nitrogen fertilizer. The controls consisted of non-manured inorganic N treatments (sidedress applications). These activities were performed during the 2014 and 2015 growing seasons as part of the Dairy Coordinated Agricultural Project, or Dairy CAP, as described below. The data from this experiment give insight into the factors controlling GHG emissions from similar cropping systems, and may be used for model calibration and validation after careful evaluation of the flagged data.

            myPhyloDB

              myPhyloDB is an open-source software package aimed at developing a user-friendly web-interface for accessing and analyzing all of your laboratory's microbial ecology data (currently supported project types: soil, air, water, microbial, and human-associated). The storage and handling capabilities of myPhyloDB archives users' raw sequencing files, and allows for easy selection of any combination of projects/samples from all of your projects using the built-in SQL database. The data processing capabilities of myPhyloDB are also flexible enough to allow the upload, storage, and analysis of pre-processed data or raw (454 or Illumina) data files using the built-in versions of Mothur and R.

              Compilation of climate data from heterogeneous networks across the Hawaiian Islands

                This paper provides: (1) a summary of the available climate data in Hawai‘i including a detailed description of the various meteorological observation networks and data accessibility, and (2) a quality-controlled meteorological dataset across the Hawaiian Islands for the 25-year period 1990-2014. The dataset draws on observations from 471 climate stations and includes rainfall, maximum and minimum surface air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, downward shortwave and longwave radiation data.
