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 Lower WF YF is a targeted area of CHaMP habitat and fish sampling in the Yankee Fork.  The 2013-2015 status and trend sampling design has a limited number of sites (2) in this area, and these sites are not representative of the desired sampling area in between these two sites.

Sites from the original 200m intensification from spsurvey for this section were loaded as a User Sample that could be used for a small GRTS sample of this area.  Previously sampled sites within this section will be considered legacy sites and sampled in out years.  2 sites will be drawn for this strata, one for RP 1 and 1 for RP 2.

This design is meant to be used in affiliation with the core Yankee Fork Status and Trend design 2016.

AOI Notes


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).
