Southern Plains LTAR Met Station 34

NAL Geospatial Catalog

    Oklahoma Mesonet station number 34, El Reno (ELRE), Canadian County, Oklahoma. Commissioned January 1, 1994. Located at 35.548480 N by -98.036540 W at 419 m above mean sea level.

    Southern Plains - Micronet

    NAL Geospatial Catalog

      Temporal (5 minute or daily) data from the Little Washita and Ft. Cobb watersheds. Includes precipitation and net radiation (discontinued) along with soil temperature and volumetric water content at 3 depths, 5, 25, and 45 centimeters.

      NUOnet (Nutrient Use and Outcome Network) database

        The Nutrient Uptake and Outcomes (NUOnet) database will be able to help establish baselines on nutrient use efficiencies; processes contributing to nutrient losses; and processes contributing to optimal crop yield, nutritional and organoleptic quality. This national database could be used to calculate many different environmental indicators from a comprehensive understanding of nutrient stocks and flows.

        Measured Annual Nutrient loads from AGricultural Environments (MANAGE) database

          The MANAGE (Measured Annual Nutrient loads from AGricultural Environments) database was developed to be a readily-accessible, easily-queried database of site characteristic and field-scale nutrient export data. Initial funding for MANAGE was provided by USDA-ARS to support the USDA Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board as part of their mission to understand and mitigate agricultural impacts on water quality. MANAGE contains data from a vast majority of published peer-reviewed N and P export studies on homogeneous cultivated, pasture/range, and forested land uses in the US under natural rainfall-runoff conditions, as well as artificially drained agricultural land. Thus MANAGE facilitates expanded spatial analyses and improved understanding of regional differences, management practice effectiveness, and impacts of land use conversions and management techniques, and it provides valuable data for modeling and decision-making related to agricultural runoff.

          Unit process data for Rapeseed production in the U.S. wheat belt

            Unit processes represent wheat-wheat-fallow and wheat-wheat-rapeseed crop production simulations that illustrate using the IPCC (Tier 1) method for calculating changes in soil C and the roundtable on sustainable biomaterials (RSB) method for estimating N2O emissions in different locations for the use in modeling the crop production portion of the HRJ lifecycle. Data are archived in a SimaPro .csv file, which can be imported into various life cycle assessment modeling tools.
