Map of Sites
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 2,827 sites:
Test design to see how results vary as a function of sample size or seed
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 (1 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.
|Attribute||Values In Frame|
|Stream_Order_Group||3 Values: Large Streams (3&4), Rivers (5+), Small Streams (1&2)|
|Attributes||# Sites In Frame||Frame Length (km)||Stratum Attributes||Panels|
|Stream_Order_Group||Stratum Name||Stratum Abbr.||Year 1||Year 2||# of Sites|
|Large Streams (3&4)||471||0||Large Streams (3&4)||LS||4||4|
|Rivers (5+)||66||0||Rivers (5+)||RV||2||1|
|Small Streams (1&2)||2290||0||Small Streams (1&2)||SS||14||15|
