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.

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 - Chesapeake Bay Watershed

The largest estuary in North America, the Chesapeake Bay Watershed covers 64,000 square miles and includes more than 150 rivers and streams that drain into the Bay. More than 300 species of fish, shellfish and crab species and a wide array of other wildlife call the Bay home. With almost 30 percent of area in agricultural production, the region’s over 83,000 farms generate more than $10 billion annually. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

Video data of flowers, fruitlets, and fruit in apple trees during the 2017 growing season at USDA-ARS-AFRS

This record contains videos of apple trees acquired from a ground vehicle throughout the growing season. Research in precision management methods in orchard crops revolve around locating objects of interest, namely flowers, fruitlets, and fruit, autonomously. This dataset is provided so that researchers without access to research plots or mature trees can experiment with the data acquired during the course of an ongoing project on apple flower estimation in images. The trees shown in these videos have a mixture of colors and growth habits. In particular, the four varieties represent one of each of the Lespinasse ideotypes.

ARS Water Database

The ARS Water Data Base is a collection of precipitation and streamflow data from small agricultural watersheds in the United States. This national archive of variable time-series readings for precipitation and runoff contains sufficient detail to reconstruct storm hydrographs and hyetographs. There are currently about 14,000 station years of data stored in the data base. Watersheds used as study areas range from 0.2 hectare (0.5 acres) to 12,400 square kilometers (4,786 square miles). Raingage networks range from one station per watershed to over 200 stations. The period of record for individual watersheds vary from 1 to 50 years. Some watersheds have been in continuous operation since the mid 1930's.
