An accuracy assessment of two broad-scale vegetation databases
for eastern Oregon, both developed from satellite imagery, was performed
to assess the usefulness of the databases for forest landscape planning
and assessment efforts. The two databases were the Oregon Department
of Forestry (ODF) vegetation database and the U.S. Geological Survey
Elk River is a sixth order stream, draining a 200 square
kilometer basin in the Klainath Mountain province of
southwestern Oregon. Timber harvesting began in the basin
during the 1950's, with peak removal of wood occurring in the
mid to late 1960's. This activity lead to an increase in the...
Tourism has become an important factor in Oregon's and
New Zealand's economies. Both destinations are trying to
attract even more tourists. However, many other destinations
are also competing for a bigger share of the tourism market.
Tourism itself is a multi-faceted phenomenon and the travel
destination decision is of some...
This study examined patterns and controls on 35-years of forest succession following logging in the 236 ha South Umpqua Experimental Forest within the Umpqua National Forest in southwestern Oregon. Prior to logging, the overstory in all three watersheds (~50% cover) was composed of Douglas-fir (30-40% cover), grand fir (2 to...
An Internet Map Server (IMS) web site was constructed with the goal of
helping middle- through high-school students learn about ocean processes. This IMS was
developed in conjunction with the activities of the Science & Math Investigative
Learning Experience (SMILE) program, and for eventual use with the Oregon Coastal
Spatialization is an innovative way to expand searching capabilities for a
marine/coastal reference database by using a metaphorical map framework to establish
a sense of place for non-spatial information. Spatializing the Catalogue of Oregon
Marine and Coastal Information (COMCI), a coastal reference database, enables the
marine and coastal resource community...
This research paper focuses upon subsurface flow because of
its dominant influence on the other types of hilislope water flow
processes. The basic theory of water movement is quickly discussed in
order to build the reader's general background knowledge. With this
background, the journey starts into the poorly understood realm...
With the passage of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) it has become a civil
rights violation to deny access to persons with disabilities to public transportation. The
ADA requires transit agencies to provide accessible buses or equivalent services to
persons with mobility, sensory or cognitive impairments. This study examines...
The Mount Fubilan Intrusion is part of a geologically young hypabyssal stock in the Star Mountains of Papua New Guinea. This stock was mapped as the Ok Tedi Intrusive Complex and divided into four separate bodies: the Mount Fubilan, Sydney Intrusion, Kalgoorlie, and Ningi Intrusions. Hydrothermal fluids caused alteration of...
