Tsunami evacuation time map for the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, extreme tsunami evacuation zone and slow walk speed

The travel time map was generated using the Pedestrian Evacuation Analyst model from the USGS (https://geography.wr.usgs.gov/science/vulnerability/tools.html). The travel time analysis uses ESRI's Path Distance tool to find the shortest distance across a cost surface from any point in the hazard zone to a safe zone....

USGS Data Release: Land change and carbon balance scenario projections for the State of California - model output

This data series provides tabular output from a series of modeling simulations for the State of California. The methods and results of this research are described in detail in Sleeter et al. (2019). We used the LUCAS model to project changes in ecosystem carbon balance resulting from land use and land use change, climate change, and ecosystem disturbances such as wildfire and drought. The

Tsunami evacuation time map for the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, standard tsunami evacuation zone and fast walk speed

The travel time map was generated using the Pedestrian Evacuation Analyst model from the USGS (https://geography.wr.usgs.gov/science/vulnerability/tools.html). The travel time analysis uses ESRI's Path Distance tool to find the shortest distance across a cost surface from any point in the hazard zone to a safe zone....

Wetland Moist Soil Seed Maps for the Central Valley of California 2007-2017 Training and Testing Data

We produced a series of maps of moist soil seed plants within managed wetlands in the Central Valley of California from 2007-2011 & 2013-2017. Moist soil seed plants, such as swamp timothy (Crypsis schoenoides) and watergrass (Echinochloa crusgallim), are a critical food source for migratory waterfowl. Through field observation and digitization of high resolution imagery we identifi

Pedestrian evacuation times for employees on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, for standard and extreme tsunami evacuation zones by community, modeled at three travel speeds (impaired, slow, and fast walk)

This dataset contains O'ahu employee count estimates as a function of travel time out of the standard and extreme tsunami-evacuation zones for three different travel speeds (impaired, slow, and fast walk). The data are organized in a manner which permits summarizing or visualizing the data by business classification (community support, dependent-care, emergency service, infrastr

Wetland Moist Soil Seed Productivity Maps for the Central Valley of California 2007 - 2017

We produced a series of maps of moist soil seed plants within managed wetlands in the Central Valley of California from 2007-2011 & 2013-2017. Moist soil seed plants, such as swamp timothy (Crypsis schoenoides) and watergrass (Echinochloa crusgallim), are a critical food source for migratory birds. For each of the Moist Soil Seed maps from 2007 to 2017, we mapped productivity of s

Pedestrian evacuation times for hotel visitors on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, for standard and extreme tsunami evacuation zones by community, modeled at three travel speeds (impaired, slow, and fast walk)

This dataset contains O'ahu hotel visitor estimates as a funtion of travel time out of the standard and extreme tsunami-evacuation zones for three different travel speeds (impaired, slow, and fast walk). The data are organized in a manner which permits summarizing or visualizing the data by tsunami-evacuation zone and/or travel time, with communities listed across the top as columns
