Map of Sites

Stratum Panel Occasion

This sample design is based on master sample: Bureau of Land Management Lotic

Details of this master sample:



Frame

This sample design started with an initial frame of 67,033 sites, based on its master sample. The criteria (based on the master sample's attributes) were then used to refine the sample frame down to 1,646 sites:

Criteria Group 1
           
  BLM District Is Equal To Green River

Target Population

Perennial streams and rivers in the Green River District, UT and on BLM lands

 


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).

Panel Sampling Occasion (2 Year(s))
# Panel Name Panel Abbr. 1

This design uses the following attributes to create the stratification shown below. Each row in the table represents a stratum. This design’s panels are also shown in the table, even if it uses only a single, default panel.

Sample Attributes
  Attribute   Values In Frame
  ADMU_ADMU_NAME 2 Values: Price, Vernal
  Stream_Order_Group 3 Values: Large Streams (3&4), Rivers (5+), Small Streams (1&2)
