Nitrogen Decision Aid

    The Nitrogen Decision Aid is a computerized program that predicts the amount of N mineralized from planting to side-dress or 5-leaf growth-stage. By applying just enough N-fertilizer to reach the critical soil nitrate concentration it is possible reduce this waste. This model is designed for Northern climates that will have some frost in the soil during the winter.

    The Ogallala Agro-Climate Tool

      The Ogallala Agro-Climate Tool is a Visual Basic application that estimates irrigation demand and crop water use over the Ogallala Aquifer region.

      SHOOTGRO

        SHOOTGRO emphasizes the development and growth of the shoot apex of small-grain cereals such as winter and spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and spring barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). To better incorporate the variability typical in the field, up to six cohorts, or age classes, of plants are followed using a daily time step.

        PhenologyMMS

          PhenologyMMS is a simulation model that outlines and quantifies the developmental sequence of different crops under varying levels of water deficits, provides developmental information relevant to each crop, and is intended to be used either independently or inserted into existing crop growth models.

          Stream Temperature Modeling and Monitoring: Multiple Regression Stream Temperature Model

            This simple Stream Temperature Modeling and Monitoring approach uses thermograph data and geomorphic predictor variables from GIS software and digital elevation models (DEM). Multiple regression models are used to predict stream temperature metrics throughout a stream network with moderate accuracy (R^2 ~ 0.65). The models can provide basic descriptions of spatial patterns in stream temperatures, suitable habitat distributions for aquatic species, or be used to assess temporal trends related to climate or management activities if multiple years of temperature data are available.

            Arctic Peregrine Falcon Abundance on Cliffs Along the Colville River, Alaska, 1981-2002 and Covariate Input Files

              This data set consists of fourteen data files. Rcode_arctic_peregrine_abundance.R contains R code that was used to analyze Arctic peregrine falcon data collected between 1981 and 2002. The code primarily uses the R package "UNMARKED" and is based on the Dail-Madsen model for estimating population abundance. To run this code in an R environment, download the file and open it in an R interpreter (such as RStudio). The remaining files are all covariate matrices that act as inputs to the R code.
