The details of this Sample Design, including all the parameters used to generate it, are included below. Sample designs must belong to a Study Design.


The objective of the Aquatic Habitat Condition Assessment and Fish Population Monitoring project is to provide an inventory of habitat conditions, establish a baseline for impact analyses, and to document fish distribution and relative abundance in the Clear Creek watershed on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest near Kooskia, Idaho. Results from the assessment will serve as a reference point for comparison with future surveys to evaluate habitat conditions and processes, water quality parameters, and population changes over time as a result of resource management in the basin. Of particular importance is the current spatial distribution and relative abundance of
salmonid species in the basin. The location of quality habitat for steelhead and salmon spawning and rearing, the overall importance of the drainage for these species, and the existence of upstream barriers will inform resource management decisions within the watershed.

Below is a list of User Samples from which this design is drawing sites.

Panel designs can help address sampling objectives by increasing the total number of samples at a lower overall cost. A common panel structure involves one or more panels with a high revisit frequency (e.g. an “Annual” panel), and other panels with a lower revisit frequency (e.g. a three year “Rotating” panel).
