Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Data Catalog

NAL Geospatial Catalog
    The Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Data Catalog is a collection of data resources, including data sets, aerial photos, satellite imagery, GIS data, and national LTER network-wide data. You are welcome to examine and use the data as you wish for research and educational needs. However, data are copyrighted and use in a publication requires permission as detailed in KBS LTER's terms of use, which can be found at http://lter.kbs.msu.edu/data/terms-of-use/

    P-TRAP Phosphorus Transport Reduction App

      The P-TRAP software allows a user to design different types of phosphorus removal structures based on site conditions, phosphorus absorbing material characteristics and structure parameters. The P-TRAP software allows users to explore different designs to meet performance goals for P removal amounts and material lifetime. A database of P absorbing material characteristics is included based on previous laboratory experiments.

      KINEROS - The kinematic runoff and erosion model

        The kinematic runoff and erosion model KINEROS is an event oriented, physically based model describing the processes of interception, infiltration, surface runoff and erosion from small agricultural and urban watersheds. The watershed is represented by a cascade of planes and channels; the partial differential equations describing overland flow, channel flow, erosion and sediment transport are solved by finite difference techniques. The spatial variation of rainfall, infiltration, runoff, and erosion parameters can be accomodated. KINEROS may be used to determine the effects of various artificial features such as urban developments, small detention reservoirs, or lined channels on flood hydrographs and sediment yield.
