Use our Data Publishing Service to add your data set to the Data Store.

The StreamNet Data Store is a searchable archive of data sets related to fish and other aquatic resources that are not of the specific data types included in the main StreamNet database. These data sets come from many different sources and are provided for download in their original formats. To add your own data set to the Data Store, use our Data Publishing Service.

StreamNet did not participate in creation of most of these data sets, and we are not able to answer questions about those we did not help develop. For questions about the data sets available from this page, please contact the originator of the particular data set.

Purpose of Data Set The Scope of this supports QRF assessments and regional coordination related to fish and habitat assessments and to continue general fish monitoring and related research. In addition this may support Snorkel Surveys, Smolt trap operation or this may be moved the other project .
Summary / Abstract Extrapolation of the Quantile Random Forest (QRF) life-stage specific capacity models for Chinook salmon and steelhead currently relies on attributes tied to master sample sites across the interior Columbia River Basin (excepting the Clearwater River Sub-basin). It is desirable to tie those estimates to a linear stream network so that they can be visualized in a common environment with other information (e.g., Beechie Network).

This work element funds the evaluation of attributes accompanying alternative linear stream network models. If sufficiently attributed, a selected linear stream network will be tested to determine whether Globally Available Attributes (GAAs) are sufficient to construct a reliable extrapolation model for QRF.
