Assessing big sagebrush at multiple spatial scales : an example in southeast Oregon by Michael G Karl( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This technical note describes how big sagebrush habitats (Artemisia tridentata, including Wyoming, basin, and mountain subspecies) are being assessed and managed at multiple spatial scales within a Bureau of Land Management resource area in southeast Oregon. It shows how the assessment results can be used to make determinations pertaining to standards and guidelines for greater sage-grouse and other animals that use sagebrush habitats"--page 1
Applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements : determining which federal and state regulations apply in the cleanup process by Pamela S Innis( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The BLM is responsible for the identification of all environmental laws that pertain to the investigation and cleanup of abandoned mines and other contaminated sites. This technical reference provides information to BLM abandoned mine land (AML) and hazardous materials site managers on how thay may determine which federal and state regulations apply to their cleanup activities. Examples and case studies are given for further insight into this process
Environmental effects of off-highway vehicles on Bureau of Land Management lands : a literature synthesis, annotated bibliographies, extensive bibliographies, and Internet resources by Douglas S Ouren( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report and its appendices compile and synthesize results of a comprehensive literature and Internet search conducted in May 2006. The literature search aim was to find information on effects of off-highway vehicle (OHV) use on land health, or "natural resource attributes," and includes databases with archived information from before OHVs came into existence to May 2006. Information includes socioeconomic implications of OHV activities as well. The literature and Internet searches yielded approximately 700 peer-reviewed papers, magazine articles, agency and non-governmental reports, and internet websites regarding effects of OHV use as they relate to the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) standards of land health. Discussions regarding OHV effects are followed by brief syntheses of potential indicators of OHV effects, as well as mitigation of OHV effects, site restoration techniques, and research needs. Major sections of this document comprise a "manager's report" which includes a literature synthesis and related discussions
Grazing management processes and strategies for riparian-wetland areas( )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This technical reference provides the most current information to further assist livestock operators and land managers in developing successful riparian-wetland grazing management strategies across a wide array of land types. It is also the core document for the Grazing Management for Riparian-Wetlands training course. This technical reference does not set forth a specific formula for identifying the type of grazing strategy best suited for an area. Rather, it provides information to help design appropriate grazing strategies so that soil and vegetation aspects, water issues, and wildlife and livestock needs are addressed in a collaborative manner

Phytostabilization as a remediation alternative at mining sites by Dennis R Neuman( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This technical note summarizes the work done at the Keating tailings site near Butte, Montana, by the Montana State University. BLM is looking for more cost-effective methods for reclaiming abandoned mine land (AML) sites. Phytostabilization is a promising alternative for accomplishing reclamation at a tenth of the cost
A Report on the potential use of USDA Forest Service forest inventory and analysis data by the Bureau of Land Management( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) does not have a consistent internal program or source of vegetation data to use for strategic level planning, such as in resource management plans. This technical note discusses and evaluates the potential of the USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program to assist the BLM in filling this data gap. The FIA program is the Forest Service's national program for collecting and reporting information on status and trends in forested ecosystems. The FIA is considered here because it is the only standard, nationwide, systematic assessment of forest land available
Aerial surveys of cliff-nesting raptors in the National Petroleum Reserve--Alaska, 1999, with comparisons to 1977 by Robert J Ritchie( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In summer 1999, an extensive aerial survey of cliff-nesting raptors was conducted in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A) on Alaska's North Slope. No similarly extensive survey had been conducted since 1977. In the interim, the regional population of the Arctic peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus tundrius) had increased, as shown by monitoring along the Colville River. The 1999 survey assessed the present abundance and distribution of the peregrine falcon, as well as the gyrfalcon (Falco rusticolus), golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), and rough-legged hawk (Buteo lagopus) in most of the NPR-A. Specifically excluded from the 1999 survey were the Kogosukruk and Kikiakrorak Rivers and the Colville River below its junction with the Etivluk River. These areas had been included in other recent surveys. Peregrine falcons were found occupying 67 sites in 1999, 61 of which were in the area surveyed in 1977 and in which only four occupied sites were found. Gyrfalcons nest earlier than other raptor species in the NPR-A, and the 1999 survey was conducted too late in the season to determine occupancy of many sites. Gyrfalcons were located at only 19 sites in 1999, down from 29 in 1977, but 41 sites showing evidence of gyrfalcon use were identified, whereas only 29 such sites were identified in 1977. Eleven pairs of golden eagles were found in 1999, which is similar to the 10 pairs found in 1977. Rough-legged hawks were the most abundant and widespread cliff-nesting raptors in the NPR-A in both years. Their relative distribution was similar in the 2 years, but twice as many pairs were found in 1999 (109) as in 1977 (55). The difficulties of comparing the results of the two surveys are discussed

Hydraulic considerations for pipelines crossing stream channels by James L Fogg( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this document is to present guidance for placement of pipelines crossing above or below the surface of stream channels to prevent inundation or exposure of the pipe to the hydraulic forces of flood events. This guidance is generally applicable to the arid and semiarid lands of the intermountain west and may also have general applicability in other areas of the western United States
Abandoned mine waste repositories : site selection, design, and cost by Karl L Ford( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is conducting priority cleanups of abandoned mine sites on public lands. Typically, these sites contain tailings piles, cyanide heaps, and rock dumps that historically were constructed in or near drainages and now are releasing pollutants into watersheds. In compliance with regulations, BLM selects the most environmentally suitable site for removing mining waste and placing it into repositories. Repositories have different design features, and the design selected should be based on site-specific conditions and the results of water balance models. A Geographic Information System (GIS) can be a useful tool for screening and selecting a repository site. Industry sources and construction data from existing repositories can be used to predict construction costs. BLM found that the key factor in predicting cost is the volume of wastes to be placed
Passive treatment systems for acid mine drainage by K. L Ford( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Passive treatment systems provide an alternative method for removing metals from acid mine drainage. There are several types of passive treatment systems; they may be used on their own or in combination to treat difficult effluents. The type of system selected is dependent upon the chemistry of the acid mine drainage and the flow of the discharge, as well as State and Federal regulations. Passive treatment systems do not require power and are less expensive than active treatment systems. They also require less maintenance, which makes them advantageous in remote locations
