To assess the ecological vulnerability of Yinma River Basin in cold mountain region of China, the ecological vulnerability index (EVI) model was established based on the integrated system dynamic (SD) model and driving force-pressure-state-impact-response-management (DPSIRM Cited by: biological, coho salmon=Oncorhynchus kisutch, habitats, physical, Siletz River, water quality data, water temperature data, Yaquina Rive, Yaquina River Basin: Notes: No organization of entries by geographic area, no index.

Elevations in the Naches Basin range from to 1, meters. The entire Yakima River Basin averages 69 centimeters of annual rainfall, varying from more than centimeters in its headwaters on the east side of. Basin and Range Aquifers. The Basin and Range Aquifers make up about , square miles of the southwestern United States (Figure 1). It is located under seven different states, which are Arizona, California, Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, and Utah. Within the Basin and Range Aquifers there are three dramatically different aquifer types.

Description: The Washington State Department of Ecology examined 78 first-order through third-order streams in the Yakima River Basin and the Coast Range Ecoregion, using methods developed for the national Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP).

The Coast Range ecoregion is a Level III ecoregion designated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the U.S. states of Washington, Oregon, and mikemccarthycomedy.com stretches along the Pacific Coast from the tip of the Olympic Peninsula in the north to the San Francisco Bay in the south, including Grays Harbor, Willapa Bay, and the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington, the entire length of the Borders: Puget Lowland (2), Willamette Valley (3).

The desert is a geographical region that largely overlaps the Great Basin shrub steppe defined by the World Wildlife Fund, and the Central Basin and Range ecoregion defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and United States Geological Survey.

It is a temperate desert with hot, dry summers and snowy mikemccarthycomedy.com: North American Desert. Jun 01,  · We used methods from EPA's Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) to assess the regional status of streams within the Coast Range ecoregion of Washington State.

Study objectives were: to determine the ecological condition of wadable, 1st-order through 3rd-order streams; to provide information for the development of water quality biological criteria; and to Cited by: 1.

Most of the Central Basin and Range Ecoregion is located in Nevada ( percent)Author: Christopher E. Soulard. The Central Basin and Range Ecoregion (Omernik, ; U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ) encompasses approximatelykm² (, mi2) of land bordered on the west by the Sierra Nevada Ecoregion, on the east by the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains Ecoregion, on the north by the Northern Basin and Range and the Snake River Basin.

Some valleys are irrigated and farmed, and rapid urban and suburban growth is occurring in the Las Vegas, Reno, and Carson City areas. Most of the state is internally drained and lies within the Great Basin; rivers in the southeast are part of the Colorado River system and those in the northeast drain to the Snake River.

hensive range-wide assessments of both species and habitat. Stream water quality in the Northern Basin and Range ecoregion is poor when compared to other ecoregions. Throughout the Northern Basin and Range ecoregion, water quality is impacted by high temperatures and in some areas by bacteria, pollutants, and aquatic weeds.

Water. Because of their unique and site-specific nature, CSOs are difficult to analyze, manage, and control. However, the effects of CSOs must be reduced to maintain the integrity of our nation's surface waters, especially where CSOs are only one of many sources that need to be addressed as part of regional- or watershed-level management and protec- tion programs.

In the rain shadow of the Cascades Mountains, the Northern Basin and Range is Oregon’s driest ecoregion marked by extreme ranges of daily and seasonal temperatures. Much like the other Basin and Range ecoregions in the western United States (for example, Central Basin and Range, Mojave Basin and Range, and Sonoran Basin and Range Ecoregions), the Northern Basin and Range Ecoregion is characterized by basin-and-range topography.

The ecoregion contains several wide basins bordered by scattered low mountains. The Willamette Valley-Puget Trough-Georgia Basin Ecoregional Assessment considers conservation targets identified by expert teams, proposing that if those targets are represented in an ecoregion, a majority of species, including those which lack data, will be included.

Detail resolution on Omernik’s () ecoregion map of the conterminous United States was necessarily limited by its rather small scale ofSubsequently, many larger scale, collaborative, state projects refined Omernik’s original ecoregion map, and subdivided its level III.

Jul 28,  · Because each ecoregion was analyzed separately, the biological index surface is meant to be viewed only one ecoregion at a time; biological index scores are not directly comparable between mikemccarthycomedy.com ACE-II biological index is a broad-scale analysis and does not incorporate all biological considerations that should be addressed during.

Omernik () originally identified 76 ecoregions in the conterminous United States by using information from small-scale maps. One of the values of the ecoregion concept in lake restoration and management is that it provides a rational basis for setting regional rather than national lake water-quality standards.

The Great Basin Montane Forests rise steeply out of the semi-arid sage-covered plains of the Great Basin Shrub Steppe [NA] in Nevada and southeastern California. This ecoregion consists of montane vegetation differentiated into distinct life zones that are roughly organized along elevational gradients (Hall ).

Feb 16,  · For several decades the Pacific coastal ecoregion of North America has served as a natural laboratory for scientific and managerial advancements in stream ecology, and much has been learned about how to better integrate ecological processes and characteristics with a human-dominated environment.
