Overview of the Arkstorm Scenario By U.S. Department of the Interior & U.S. Geological Survey
Paperback: $24.50

Naming the ARkStorm. A California storm is known by the year in which the storm occurred. To equate the storm in a person’s mind requires some visceral knowledge of the event, or some... More > understanding of history, meteorology, hydrology, engineering, or other relevant technical discipline. Even with that knowledge, the naming convention does not communicate the magnitude of the event. Therefore, the ARkStorm scenario was named so as to be independent of time, to acknowledge the meteorological phenomena behind most large storms on the U.S. West Coast, namely Atmospheric Rivers (ARs), and to provide some future scale to compare past and future events. The hypothetical scenario would be an Atmospheric River, AR with a value of 1,000 (k), or an ARkStorm. The Multihazards Demonstration Project. The ARkStorm Scenario is the second major project of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project (MHDP).< Less
Incorporating Induced Seismicity in the 2014 United States National Seismic Hazard Model: Results of 2014 Workshop and Sensitivity Studies By U.S. Geological Survey & U.S. Department of the Interior

Incorporating Induced Seismicity in the 2014 United States National Seismic Hazard Model: Results of 2014 Workshop and SensThe U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM) for... More > the conterminous United States was updated in 2014 to account for new methods, input models, and data necessary for assessing the seismic ground shaking hazard from natural (tectonic) earthquakes. The USGS NSHM project uses probabilistic seismic hazard analysis to quantify the rate of exceedance for earthquake ground shaking (ground motion). For the 2014 NSHM assessment, the seismic hazard from potentially induced earthquakes was intentionally not considered because we had not determined how to properly treat these earthquakes for the seismic hazard analysis. The phrases “potentially induced” and “induced” are used interchangeably in this report, however it is acknowledged that this classification is based on circumstantial evidence and scientific judgment.< Less
Effects of Prescribed Fire in the Coastal Prairies of Texas By U.S. Geological Survey & U.S. Department of the Interior
Paperback: $16.51
Prints in 3-5 business days
Prescribed fire is widely applied for habitat management in coastal ecosystems. Fire management plans typically list a variety of objectives for prescribed burning, including succession management,... More > promotion of native flora and fauna, providing habitat for species of importance, wildfire risk reduction (fuels management), as well as reduction and/or prevention of invasive species. In most cases, the information needed to determine the degree to which management objectives are met is not available. This study sought to provide an assessment of key objectives of fire management at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Texas Mid-coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex. The main purpose of this work was to provide information and recommendations that will support Region 2 of the USFWS in the conduct of their fire and habitat management activities in the Western Gulf coast region. There were four main components of this project...< Less
