  1. Full Spectrum Complete IOP Instrument Suite

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An ultimate goal of ocean-observing and ocean-color remote sensing programs is to determine the nature and concentrations of ocean-water constituents and, combined with models, infer the biological and physical processes occurring. To effectively achieve this goal, it is absolutely necessary to obtain direct measurements of the fundamental (i.e., inherent) optical absorption and scattering proper ...

  2. EcoSod: An Alternative Native Sod Solution for Highway Construction Projects

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Surface Transporation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act (STURAA) requires the use of native grasses and wildflowers within highway corridors. A major problem for the revegetation industry has been the ability to predictably establish native vegetation from seed. The production of native sods would allow for the most sensitive period of establishment-germination and initial seedling growt ...

  3. Performance of Innovative Native Seed Harvester

    SBC: Arbuckle Ranch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Annually wildfires, construction, mining, and noxious weed infestations damage millions of acres of vegetation. Public policy encourages land managers to restore damaged land by reseeding native plant species. The core US market exceeds 15,000 seed producers using inefficient methods to harvest difficult to harvest seed of native plants. Demand for large amounts of seed is d ...

  4. Ground-Based, Line-Source Ignition Material for Prescribed Fires

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: A "Forest Health Crisis" exists in many areas of the United States, characterized by the build-up of forest vegetation as a result of over a century of effective fire suppression. This unnatural accumulation of fuels poses a significant risk to long-term forest health and to the safety of nearby communities in the event of a fire. Prescribed burning, the lighting and control ...

  5. Maintaining and Using the Forest Biometrics Research Database

    SBC: Forest Biometrics            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Forestry has historically relied on publically funded Experiment Stations and University programs to supply new technology. Funding has moved away from biometrics research and technical support. This situation changes the relationship among USDA Experiment Stations, University cooperatives, outside professional consultants and industrial forestry organizations. This project ...

  7. Developing Software for Search and Rescue Planning and Operation

    SBC: Hummingbird Consulting            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: In the southwestern United States, rural communities face a daunting problem of coping with the death and stranding of illegal immigrants in isolated border areas. In 2002 in Arizona, at least 120 people died trying to cross border areas. The initial actions of public officials at the onset of an incident can make the difference between life and death. In these complicated i ...

  8. Use of Site-Specific Recombination for Hybrid Rice Production

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Based on previous work we anticipate that this project will provide a proof of principle for hybrid rice production as an attractive alternative to the use of CMS in rice. We expect that this technology will become standard to the rice industry and integrated into worldwide breeding programs. We also anticipate that this technology will be used in a wide array of other cerea ...

  9. Computerized Rangeland Information System

    SBC: Land EKG. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Conditions on U.S. rangelands have long been a source of concern to natural resource experts and land stewards. Within the past two decades environmental and social concerns have resulted in statutes and regulations prompting for improved land, water, and ecological monitoring and management practices. These mandates imply a need for significant amounts of information for ma ...
