Soil Series Classification Database (SC)

    The USDA-NRCS Soil Series Classification Database contains the taxonomic classification of each soil series identified in the United States, Territories, Commonwealths, and Island Nations served by USDA-NRCS. Along with the taxonomic classification, the database contains other information about the soil series, such as office of responsibility, series status, dates of origin and establishment, and geographic areas of usage.

    Climate Shield Cold-Water Refuge Streams For Native Trout: ArcGIS Online map

      The Climate Shield website hosts geospatial data and related information that describes specific locations of cold-water refuge streams for native Cutthroat Trout (*Oncorhynchus clarkii*) and Bull Trout (*Salvelinus confluentus*) across the American West. Forecasts about the locations of refugia could enable the protection of key watersheds, inform support among multiple stakeholders, and provide a foundation for planning climate-smart conservation networks that improve the odds of preserving native trout populations through the 21st century.

      The Aquatic eDNAtlas Project: Lab Results Map - USFS RMRS

        The eDNA samples in the eDNAtlas database describe species occurrence locations and were collected by the U.S. Forest Service and numerous agencies that have partnered with the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) throughout the United States. The eDNAtlas is accessed via an interactive ArcGIS Online (AGOL) map that allows users to view and download sample site information and lab results of species occurrence for the U.S. The results are primarily based on samples analyzed at the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) and associated with geospatial attributes created by the Boise Spatial Streams Group (BSSG).

        The Range-Wide Bull Trout eDNA Project - USFS RMRS

          The bull trout (*Salvelinus confluentus*) eDNA survey results Online Map allows users to view the survey results in an interactive map by coupling 1) predictions from the range-wide, spatially precise Climate Shield model on the location of natal habitats of bull trout with 2) a sampling template for every 8-digit hydrologic unit in the historical range of bull trout, based on the probability of detecting bull trout presence using environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling. The map provides the ability to zoom in and look at an area of interest, as well as to create queries or select an area to download points as a shapefile.

          RF-CLASS: Remote-sensing-based Flood Crop Loss Assessment Service System

            The Remote-sensing-based Flood Crop Loss Assessment Service System (RF-CLASS) is an Earth Observation (EO) based flood crop loss assessment cyber-service system operated by the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS), George Mason University. RF-CLASS supports flood-related crop statistics and insurance decision-making.

            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.

              Greater Blue Earth River Basin Sediment Budget Shapefiles

                These are the extents of landforms used in the construction of suspended sediment budgets for the LeSueur, Blue Earth and Watonwan Rivers. The extents of bluffs, ravines, lakes, and subwatersheds in 2010 are included, as well as riverbanks from 2008 and 1938.

                Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Croplands

                  This download provides three datasets aggregated from the original output of the 172 crops; total emissions from croplands, per kilocalorie emissions from croplands and per food kilocalorie emissions from cropland.
