Abstract

Management practices since the late 19th century, including fire exclusion and harvesting, have altered the structure of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex P. Lawson & C. Lawson) dominated forests across the western United States. These structural changes have the potential to...

Abstract

We created six new tree-ring chronologies in northern Utah, which were used with preexisting chronologies from Utah and western Wyoming to reconstruct mean annual flow for the Logan River, the largest tributary of the regionally important Bear River. Two reconstruction models were developed, a...

Abstract

Epidemiological studies of white pine blister rust on limber pine require a temporal component to explain variations in incidence of infection and mortality. Unfortunately, it is not known how long the pathogen has been present at various sites in the central Rocky Mountains of North America....

Abstract

Tree rings offer a means to extend observational records of streamflow by hundreds of years, but dendrohydrological techniques are not regularly applied to small tributary and headwaters gages. Here we explore the potential for extending three such gage records on small streams in the Wind River...

Abstract

This study focuses on regionalization and reconstruction of April 1 snow water equivalent (SWE) of snow courses stations located in the Upper Colorado River basin (UCRB) and evaluates regional drought scenarios for the last 480 years. Rotated principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis...

Abstract

This article evaluates drought scenarios of the Upper Colorado River basin (UCRB) considering multiple drought variables for the past 500 years and positions the current drought in terms of the magnitude and frequency. Drought characteristics were developed considering water-year data of UCRB's...

Abstract

Tree-ring records spanning the past seven centuries from the central and southern Rocky Mountains were studied using wavelet analysis to examine multidecadal (>30-70 yr) patterns of drought variation. Fifteen tree-ring series were grouped into five regional composite chronologies based on shared ...

Abstract

A fire scar chronology was constructed from ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and Rocky Mountain juniper (Juniperus scopulorum) trees within the 70 km2 Rochelle Hills Area of the Thunder Basin National Grasslands, in NE Wyoming, USA. A total of 65 fire scars occurred in 48 crossdated samples, and a...

Abstract

Forests in the western USA are subject to a variety of pathogens, whose role in forest health is being questioned. The relationship of dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium americanum) infection to time since stand-replacing fire was determined for part of the Medicine Bow National Forest in SE Wyoming,...

Abstract

The effectiveness was examined of 3 sampling techniques and 5 sample sizes to date stand-replacing fires in lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) forests in the southern Rocky Mountains (Medicine Bow National Forest, SE Wyoming), USA. Transects (5×250 m) were established in a relatively...
