E&S has completed a research project for the National Park Service to apply niche models from a database of more than 1,500 statistical models previously developed by E&S to evaluate expected future changes in understory vegetation occurrence in response to air pollution and climate change across eight NPS units: Acadia NP, Glacier NP, Grand Teton …

In summer 2021, E&S, in collaboration with NV5 Geospatial, collected remotely sensed thermal data of the surface of the Klamath River from J.C. Boyle Dam to the headwaters of Copco Reservoir. This work identified 116 significant thermal features (STFs) in this section of the Klamath River. These STFs are mostly locations where the thermal data …

E&S has initiated a project for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to advance statistical model development related to the response of tree growth and survival to air pollution, climate change, and forest disturbance. Working collaboratively with project partners, a primary objective of this research is to generate critical loads of atmospheric N and S deposition …

E&S is conducting wildlife monitoring at a host of wind energy plants in the western United States to evaluate their effects on bird and bat populations, with particular relevance to the fate of threatened and endangered species. Active curtailment strategies are also being conducted by E&S to minimize the risk of eagle fatalities in real-time …

E&S was recently awarded a Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract with the General Services Administration (GSA) of the U.S. federal government. This GSA MAS contract establishes a 5-year agreement for E&S to provide Environmental Consulting (NAICS 541620) and Geographic Information System (GIS; NAICS 541370GIS) services to all (non-DoD) federal agencies including the U.S. Forest Service, …

Klamath Water Quality Monitoring 2020

E&S Environmental staff has initiated twice-monthly to monthly water quality monitoring of the Klamath River system including Copco and Iron Gate reservoirs for year 2020. E&S has conducted regular sampling in the basin for more than 20 years. We have compiled a long-term database of phosphorus, nitrogen, carbon, and microcystin concentrations; along with phytoplankton speciation/enumeration …

E&S staff developed a comprehensive assessment of the expected risk to various biological endpoints within all National Forests and wilderness areas of the Intermountain Region. Risk was characterized with critical loads of atmospheric N deposition to protect against species levels of effects on aquatic biota, lichen communities, and individual tree species. Substantial portions of the …

E&S led research describing a modeling study focused on sustainable timber harvesting within the Daniel Boone National Forest (DBNF) has been completed. The VSD+ model was used to evaluate the effects of timber harvesting and historical impacts from acidic deposition on soil nutrient supply at two sites. Results showed that ridgetop locations, and likely other …

A scientific manuscript prepared by E&S staff and colleagues from the State University of New York, Syracuse and the U.S. Geological Survey was recently accepted by the journal Plant and Soil. This publication is titled “Plant Richness and Composition in Hardwood Forest Understories Varies Along an Acidic Deposition and Soil-Chemical Gradient in the Northeastern United …
