Environmental Data at Remote Camera Stations on Moscow Mountain in Latah County, ID, USA (10/20/20-5/30/21)

Metadata Updated: June 15, 2024

Remote camera data on snow presence, snow depth, and wildlife detections on Moscow Mountain in Latah County, ID, USA. Reconyx Hyperfire I and Hyperfire II cameras were used and set to take hourly timelapse images and motion-triggered images. The cameras were deployed from October 2020 - May 2021. Snow presence was assessed up to 15 m from the camera. Snow depth was measured using virtual snow stakes created with the edger R package created by the author. Wildlife were marked as present in all photos in which they appear, and new individuals were counted. Snow density was collected using a federal or prairie snow sampler. Snow hardness was collected using a ram penetrometer. Solar radiation was calculated using hemispherical photographs. Cold-air pooling was approximated using a DEM. These data were used for two purposes: 1) to explore variability in snow disappearance dates in a complex forested terrain, and 2) to examine relationships between white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and mule deer (O. hemionus) and snow properties including snow depth, density, and hardness.
