Bibliography Background About KRIS

KRIS Redwood Creek Sponsors and Cooperators

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection 

The California Department of Forestry (CDF) contributed the major portion of funding for KRIS in support of the North Coast Watershed Assessment Project.  The Fire and Resource Assessment Program (FRAP), within the CDF, provided oversight and a great deal of useful information that is included in the KRIS Redwood Creek database (DB) and Map projects. Timber harvest information and updated roads and streams data were contributed by CDF Santa Rosa.


North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board 

The North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (NCRWQCB) provided data for KRIS Redwood Creek and assisted in the production of database topics concerning temperature and sediment.. 


Conservation Technology Support Program and ESRI

The Conservation Technology Support Program, with the support of the Earth Science Research Institute (ESRI), awarded a  grant for hardware and software to the Institute for Fisheries Resources (IFR), which made it possible to assemble the KRIS Redwood Creek Map project. The Conservation Technology Support Program (CTSP) annually awards grants for equipment, software and training to tax-exempt conservation organizations to build their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) capacity. 


USFS Spatial Analysis Lab, Sacramento, CA

The USFS Spatial Analysis Lab in Sacramento provided forest stand and vegetation coverages for the KRIS Map and database projects. The USFS works cooperatively with CDF FRAP on this and other projects.


California Department of Fish and Game 

The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) provided data for the KRIS Redwood Creek project.



Redwood National Park  

Since its inception in 1972, Redwood National Park has had an excellent staff and conducted extensive research on fisheries, sediment transport and watershed condition. The KRIS Redwood Creek project has some data from the park, but only a small fraction. The Bibliography has a number of high quality, useful documents stemming from the work of staff at the park.


American Fisheries Society

The American Fisheries Society (AFS) allowed some of its journal articles to be included in the KRIS Bibliography. AFS has posted recent journals on the internet, and the entire contents of these journals are available with a subscription. Article abstracts may be viewed at no cost. All AFS journal articles in KRIS are still fully covered by copyright and may not be re-used without written permission from AFS.
