Feedstock Readiness Level (FSRL) evaluation: Pennisetum purpureum (napiergrass), Alcohol-to-Jet, Southeast, June 2018

Feedstock readiness level evaluations are performed for a specific feedstock-conversion process combination and for a particular region. FSRL evaluations complement evaluations of Fuel Readiness Level (FRL) and environmental progress. The data from this evaluation, compiled in June 2018, assesses the maturity of Pennisetum purpureum (napiergrass) as a feedstock for the Alcohol-to-Jet conversion process in the United States Southeast region.

Complete Data and Analysis for: Fungicide Effectiveness on Soybean Rust in the Southeastern United States 2004-2014: A Meta-Analysis

Soybean rust is a concern to soybean growers and management of soybean rust primarily depends on disease scouting and the timely use of fungicides. The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of fungicide-use through a quantitative meta-analysis of data compiled from published and unpublished soybean fungicide trials across the southern United States from 2004 to 2014. The data included in this repository includes the complete dataset as a comma-separated-value file and all Program R code necessary to replicate the data processing, analysis, and graphing.

White-tailed deer density estimates across the eastern United States, 2008

The QDMA spatial map depicting deer density (deer per square mile) was digitized across the eastern United States. Estimates of deer density were: White = rare, absent, or urban area with unknown population, Green = less than 15 deer per square mile, Yellow = 15 to 30 deer per square mile, Orange = 30 to 40 deer per square mile, or Red = greater than 45 deer per square mile. These categories represent coarse deer density levels as identified in the QDMA report in 2009 and should not be used to represent current or future deer densities across the study region.

NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Longleaf Pine Range

Longleaf pine forests once encompassed more than 90 million acres of the North American landscape and represented some of the world’s most unique biologically diverse ecosystems. In 2010, approximately three percent, or 3.4 million acres, of longleaf pine forest remained. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

Long-Term Agricultural Research (LTAR) network - Meteorological Collection

The LTAR network maintains stations for standard meteorological measurements including, generally, air temperature and humidity, shortwave (solar) irradiance, longwave (thermal) radiation, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, and precipitation. Many sites also have extensive comparable legacy datasets. The LTAR scientific community decided that these needed…
