Nov 13 2014 - Final Workshop: Tools for Successful Collaboration

Building on a collaboration workshop series held in Spring/Summer 2014, the objective of this workshop was to help improve communication by building facilitation skills with those involved in collaborative projects. We worked to build a common language to support collaboration, shared tools to prevent problems, and demonstrated interventions to support success when problems arise through mutual learning and discussion. UC Cooperative Extension has developed training modules for all stakeholders interested in developing these skills. These are available for a free download here.

This workshop focused on detailed discussion of participants’ real life experiences with collaborative efforts. It included practice and discussion of the most appropriate facilitation tools to improve challenging moments. The workshop's guest speaker was Jim Nelson, Retired from Ca. Fish and Wildlife and founder of Nelson Facilitation.

SNAMP hosted this meeting to follow up on the October 2011 annual meeting at which several SNAMP close out scenarios were presented to accommodate a reduced budget. Since we received commitments of reinstated funding and in-kind data services from the US Forest Service and the California Department of Water Resources, the project will continue at both sites through 2012. We currently anticipate concluding the project in December 2014 as originally envisioned.

This meeting provided updates on current research in SNAMP Public Participation; AND sought input from participants on changes in the overall SNAMP workplan schedule, design and on project completion ideas and prioritized deliverables to meet MOUP and stakeholder expectations.

May 17 2012 - Northern Site LiDAR Workshop

The Spatial Team led by Dr. Maggi Kelly and Dr. Qinghua Guo from the Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project (SNAMP) held a LiDAR workshop at the Northern treatment site, sharing our work with LiDAR, the latest in remote sensing/mapping tools.

LiDAR is providing a new view of the forest as it allows the quantification of forest structures across the landscape; from fuels, to biomass, canopy cover, downed logs, and the height, diameter and height to live crown of individual trees. This enhanced visualization of the forest is allowing for a better quantification of valuable structures as well as the changes brought about by fuel treatments.

In addition to the PowerPoint presentations on the right, Dr. Maggi Kelly also showed the following videos to demonstrate how the LiDAR points are visualized using GIS.

Description: Our northern SNAMP site, mapped with lidar data. In this video you will fly into our study area, watching as lidar data is turned into a high resolution DEM, then the ground is populated with the lidar point cloud, and then zooming into the cloud, you will see individual trees.

Description: Watch as a stand of trees is visualized as a collection of lidar points. In our high density data, each individual tree is visible. We've developed new algorithms to extract each tree from the lidar point cloud, and use these data for understanding wildlife habitat. Video created by Marek Jakubowski.

Description: Here the lidar point cloud for a stand of trees is shown in profile: white dots are returns from vegetation, orange points represent the ground, and the green points show a consistent height profile (e.g. 1m, 2m, 3m…) above the ground. Watch as the green line moves from the ground through the top of the trees. We make use of all these data in our analysis. Video created by Alessandro Montaghi.

May 16 2012 - Southern Site LiDAR Workshop

The Spatial Team led by Dr. Maggi Kelly and Dr. Qinghua Guo from the Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project (SNAMP) held a LiDAR workshop at the Southern treatment site, sharing our work with LiDAR, the latest in remote sensing/mapping tools.

LiDAR is providing a new view of the forest as it allows the quantification of forest structures across the landscape; from fuels, to biomass, canopy cover, downed logs, and the height, diameter and height to live crown of individual trees. This enhanced visualization of the forest is allowing for a better quantification of valuable structures as well as the changes brought about by fuel treatments.

In addition to the PowerPoint presentations on the right, Dr. Maggi Kelly also showed the following videos to demonstrate how the LiDAR points are visualized using GIS.

Description: Our northern SNAMP site, mapped with lidar data. In this video you will fly into our study area, watching as lidar data is turned into a high resolution DEM, then the ground is populated with the lidar point cloud, and then zooming into the cloud, you will see individual trees.

May 1 2012 - Southern Site Fisher Field Trip

The Pacific fisher wildlife research team from the southern site of the Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project led a group of participants to their research site. They have been studying the fisher for four years and have two years remaining in their evaluation of this population's response to local fuel treatments being done by the Forest Service. As it will be denning season by May, the research team wanted to show some of the interesting details they have learned about the fisher's denning habits over the last few years.

A primary goal of this field trip was to inform SNAMP participants and other interested parties about the research questions and methods used by the UC water team to study the effects of US Forest Service fuels treatment projects on water quantity and quality. The team demonstrated how the newly upgraded embedded sensor network, which employs the state-of-the-art wireless technology, measures the variability of snow depth and soil moisture across the landscape and arrives at quantitative basin-scale estimates. This Duncan Peak instrument cluster is also a prototype for a new, broader water-information system for Sierra Nevada snowpack and water cycle.

Alan Ager, Western Wildland Environmental Threat Assessment Center, Pacific Northwest Research Station, USDA Forest service. This workshop introduced the ArcFuels VBA macros written for ArcGIS version 9.2 (available from www.fs.fed.us/wwetac/arcfuels). The workshop started with Alan Ager presenting analyses and results from two Oregon study areas in which ArcFuels was used to evaluate the effects of fuel treatment alternatives on potential fire behavior and fire risk. The workshop then went into an interactive mode of teaching/using ArcFuels including running fire behavior model FlamMap, assessing fire behavior with FlamMap, designing thinning and/or burning fuel treatments, evaluating FVS fuel treatment scenario outputs, and integrating other data into FlamMap. The workshop was hosted in the Geospatial Imaging and Informatics Facility.
