Title: BLM REA NOS 2012 Aerial survey of cliff-nesting raptors in the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska, 1999, with comparisons to 1977
Description:
Abstract: The Alaska Gap Analysis Project distribution models for raptors were of generally of poor quality, as cliff nesting features were not mapped well in the land cover base maps used to generate the distribution models. Therefore, an alternate method of mapping the distribution of raptors is necessary. Alaska Natural Heritage Program compiled 5,166 existing occurrence records for peregrine falcon (n = 2752), gyrfalcon (n = 413), and rough-legged hawk (n = 2001) for the North Slope study area from a variety of data sources. This dataset provides occurrence records digitized from 1999 aerial surveys of National Petroleum Reserve - Alaska. Data are standardized a common format.
Purpose: This dataset provides a digitized summary of occurrences of rough-legged hawk, gyrfalcon, and peregrine falcon found during aerial surveys conducted in National Petroleum Reserve - Alaska in 1999.
