Columbia River DART (Data Access in Real Time) Overview

Columbia River DART provides an interactive data resource designed for research and management purposes relating to the Columbia Basin salmon populations and river environment. Currently, daily data plus historic information dating back to 1878 is accessible online. Columbia River DART focuses on the Columbia Basin dams and fish passage. Detailed information is brought in daily from federal, state and tribal databases to provide a comprehensive information tool. Daily data loads occur from 5:30 to 8:30 every morning as well as several updates throughout the day.

Columbia River DART generates user-specified data files which can be saved to a user's personal computer in a variety of formats designed to be compatible with most spreadsheet programs. In addition, Columbia River DART has graphing capabilities which allow for the visual comparison of multiple variables on one plot. These output formats are available for the following data resources related to fish passage, PIT tags and the river environment.

PIT Tag Adult Returns

Daily detail and summary PIT Tag release and observation data of adult salmon throughout the Columbia Basin. The Graphics & Text query joins the PIT Tag Adult Returns dataset with the River Environment dataset. The Adult PIT Tag observations presented in these queries are based on data filtering--including migration year, release year, release length, observation year, release site, and other criteria--used to determine the stage of the PIT-tagged fish at the time of the detection. DART categorizes PIT Tag observations into three stages: Adult, Juvenile, and Unknown. PIT Tag detections that DART has determined to be of Juvenile or Unknown stage are excluded from these PIT Tag Adult Returns queries.

PIT Tag Adult Sampling and Tagging at Ladders Valid Sample TagID List and Sample Time/Rates

Allows users to identify PIT tagged fish associated the ISEMP steelhead and spring/summer Chinook salmon adult PIT tagging project. These tags are used to generate escapement estimates in tributary streams upstream of the detection location. To ensure all users of the adult PIT tagging project have the same "Valid Sample List", DART created a query to identify all tagged and recaptured fish at the trap associated with the trap operations, and parse these fish into a real-time accessible list. Before this query, the list was created by hand and it was difficult to provide a list in a timely fashion to all cooperators and users, and ensure that users had the most up-to-date version. Additionally, DART has created a query to summarize trap operations, specifically opening and closing times, total sample time by day, trap open times associated with the SbyC process, and the resulting numbers of recaptured fish collected by the sampling or SbyC process. From this information, the percent of time sampled can be calculated and used to inform the tributary escapement calculations.

PIT Tag Adult Fallback Adjustment Rates

Retrospective analysis of fallback adjustment rates—of the ascents recorded to date based on PIT Tag detections, how many of these ascents were of fish previously counted—at Bonneville, McNary, Ice Harbor, and Lower Granite dams. A seasonal ladder count times the proportion of unique fish would provide an estimate of the actual abundance of fish ascending the ladder, corrected for recounts due to fallbacks. The algorithm to determine ascension counts is based on radiotelemetry research at the Columbia dams performed by Brian Burke, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, NOAA, 2003-2004.

    Instream Arrays & Subbasins with Interrogation and Recapture datasets

    Researchers across the Columbia Basin have rapidly expanded efforts to deploy remote PIT tag detection arrays in tributary basins, providing an opportunity to observe movement and life history patterns of individual fish in greater detail. In order to standardize the efficient handling and analysis of these datasets for both juvenile and adult populations for specific research questions and to allow reproducible results across research studies, DART developed these web-based analytical processing tools fully aggregating the subbasin interrogation sites with recapture datasets. These tools provide detail and summary data for specific subbasins as well as metadata and methods for observation patterns, travel time statistics, straying, kelt migration, and ghost tag identification.
