Sierra Ancha Experimental Forest (SAEF) Climate Data: 2000 - 2011

    The Sierra Ancha Experimental Forest (SAEF) is a research area focused on studying watershed management. The Experimental Forest lies roughly 30 miles (48 km) northeast of Globe, Arizona, and is located within the Tonto National Forest. Tabular climate data for the SAEF are presented, including monthly and daily measurements for precipitation, temperature, and wind, for the years 2000 through 2011.

    Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP)

      Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) is designed to help land managers learn about the impacts of road systems on erosion and sediment delivery to streams. GRAIP couples analytical tools with an inventory process to build an approach to roads analysis that can be locally calibrated in a repeatable fashion and with minimal effort. The full scope of GRAIP includes methods to inventory roads and analyze the inventory for surface erosion, gully risk, landslide risk and stream crossing failure risks. Methods to measure road surface erosion from sample sites are also included.
