Bibliography Background About KRIS

KRIS Ten Mile River Sponsors and Cooperators


California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection 

The California Department of Forestry (CDF), the primary sponsor of the KRIS Mendocino project, contributed the major portion of the funding. 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 Noyo database (DB) and Map projects.



National Fish and Wildlife Foundation  Pacific Grassroots Salmon Initiative  

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established by Congress in 1984 and dedicated to creating public/private partnerships to conserve our Nation's fish, wildlife, and plant resources. NFWF supplied the original funding for the KRIS Mendocino project in the form of a Pacific Grassroots Salmon Initiative grant.

California Department of Fish and Game 

The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) provided data for the KRIS Ten Mile project. Region 3 CDFG was particularly instrumental in the KRIS Ten Mile project success because it supplied valuable historical documents.


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 Ten Mile 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 many projects.


California Department of Conservation, Division of of Mines and Geology 

The California Division of Mines and Geology (CDMG), a part of the Department of Conservation, provided in-depth geological information for the KRIS Ten Mile Map project. CDMG staff also served in peer review.


North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board 

The North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (NCRWQCB) provided data for KRIS Ten Mile and also participated in peer review.


American Fisheries Society

The American Fisheries Society (AFS) allowed inclusion of some of its journal articles 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.

Held-Poage Historical Museum and Library

Some of the wonderful historical photos in the KRIS Ten Mile project were provided by the Held-Poage Historical Museum and Library in Ukiah, California. The museum and library is a subsidiary of the Mendocino Historical Society. Photos may be viewed in KRIS Noyo but any other use must be approved by the Mendocino Historical Society.


Graham Matthews and Associates, Hydrology Consultants

KRIS Ten Mile draws heavily on the Sediment Source Analysis and Preliminary Sediment Budget for the Ten Mile River (Matthews, 2000) for data and analysis regarding sediment sources, sediment yield by period and sediment transport. This report was produced to supply supporting information to the Ten Mile TMDL report (U.S. EPA, 2000).  The document and associated data were generously provided by Matthews (2000) in electronic form.
