Forklength (Lgth): The length from snout tip to the tail fork, recorded to the nearest millimeter.
Hatchery
When fish are tagged at a hatchery, this field contains the four-character abbreviation from the domain of hatchery codes.
Migration Year
A field in a Tagging File used to record the last two digits of the earliest calendar year when fish are expected to smolt and out-migrate to the ocean. In the case of adults and/or recaptured fish, this value will generally reference the current year.
Observation Date (Obs_DateTime)
The date and time the fish are detected at the observation site.
Observation Site (Obs)
The three character site code where the fish are observed.
PIT (Passive Integrated Transponder) Tag
A computer chip attached to a wire antenna and encapsulated in a biologically inert glass capsule. The tag is excited when it is passed through the electromagnetic field of a detector and the information on the computer chip is transmitted to the detector. See Research: PIT-Tagging and Other Research Tools, Pacific Salmon Coordination Office for a short description and illustration.
Release Date (RelDate)
The date the fish was released to a stream to rear or out-migrate naturally.
Release River KM
The release location expressed in river kilometers from the mouth of the Columbia River. This is a hierarchical coding scheme from the mouth of the Columbia River to the release site (up to 7th order streams for point release sites) with each tributary delimited with a period. For example, the Release River KM for Lower Granite Dam of 522.173 reflects a distance of 522 km from the mouth of the Columbia River to the mouth of the Snake River, and 173 km from the mouth of the Snake River to Lower Granite Dam.
Release Site (RelSite)
The six character site code where the fish are released.

Intra-Dam Release Site Codes: These codes are appended as a suffix to the three-character dam site code and provide a specific location for release at, above, or below hydroelectric facilities. For example, a release into the gatewells at Lower Granite Dam would be coded as LGRGWL. Use of Intra-Dam Release Site Codes will be required after 12/31/99.

Survival and Travel Time Estimates

Survival Estimates

The survival estimates are calculated for a population of PIT-tagged fish as defined by the query.

The Survival Estimates tool uses Cormack-Jolly-Seber (CJS) estimates. The query results provide estimates and standard errors for the survival and detection probabilities, and the product of the final survival and detection probabilities. The standard error of all estimates are reported in parentheses. The estimate of the overall survival probability, i.e., the product of all the survival estimates, is reported as well.

For the CJS estimates to be valid, the following assumptions must be met:

  1. Individuals marked for the study are a representative sample from the population of interest.
  2. Survival and capture probabilities are not affected by tagging or detection. That is, tagged fish have the same probabilities as untagged fish.
  3. All detections are "instantaneous." That is, detection takes a negligible amount of time or distance relative to the length of the reaches between detection events.
  4. The fate of each tagged individual is independent of the fate of all others.
  5. All tagged individuals alive at the beginning of a reach have the same probability of surviving until the end of that reach.
  6. All tagged individuals alive at the beginning of a detection site have the same probability of being detected at that site.
  7. Each individual detected at a particular detection site has the same probability of being removed, and the probability of removal is independent of the survival process.

There are several limitations to the Survival Estimates produced by this tool.

  1. Depending on the selection criteria, the survival estimates will tend to over-pool releases.
  2. If you do not define the PIT Tag group specifically by a release site, then different release sites (and travel distances) will be included in the group; hence the assumption that all individuals have the same probability of survival may be violated for the first reach (release point to the first dam). Survival estimates for the other reaches (dam to dam) will be fine.
  3. If the PIT Tag group includes fish released from the same location but at different times, then the estimates will be a weighted average over time as a function of release size. If the probability of survival varies over time, the assumption that all individuals have the same probability of survival may be violated.
  4. The Survival Estimates tool is unable to produce estimates for the last dam because detection efficiency cannot be distinguished from survival for the final reach.
  5. Survival estimates are generated from capture histories for each fish that are based on data downloaded from the PTAGIS database system. The particular data used for these estimates contain only last detections and therefore do not take into account the full detection history for a fish at a given site and may not account for errors in detection sequence recording. This may lead to minor over censoring of the data that in turn may lead to slightly higher standard errors in parameter estimates when compared to systems that use the full detections history of the fish.

Mean Travel Time Estimates

The mean travel times are calculated for a population of PIT-tagged fish as defined by the query.

The travel time estimates are based on the release date for each pit-tagged fish as recorded in the PTAGIS database (and uploaded to the Columbia River DART database) and the first and last detection times at each downstream detection site. Travel Time estimates for release to downstream detection site are calculated using the release time and the time of the first detection at the downstream detection site. Between detection sites travel time estimates are calculated using the time of the last detection at the upstream site and the time of the first detection at the downstream site.

Arithmetic Mean Travel Time
( reach travel time ) / number of unique fish detected at the detection sites

Harmonic Mean Travel Time
number of unique fish detected at the detection sites / ( (1/reach travel time) )

When dealing with travel times, we are primarily interested in the speed with which fish travel from point A to point B. A good statistic for describing a particular group's speed is the harmonic mean. A harmonic mean is used when working with rates of speed, usually the number of days to travel a set distance. A benefit to using the harmonic mean is that it is more robust in the presence of outliers (i.e., a very fast or slow fish).

Note on Migration Year 2000:
There was an release of unmarked subyearling chinook upstream of Snake River Trap which occurred in May 2000. As the result, there was some problem in proper identification of juvenile chinook at the trap (SNKTRP) beginning with May 22, 2000. Some subyearling fall chinook were tagged as 15Ws (Chinook, Unknown, Wild) and included in the wild yearling spring/summer chinook ESU totals via detections from the SNKTRP. Detections at SNKTRP after May 22, 2000 of wild yearling spring/summer chinook have been excluded from the "Chinook, Wild Spring/Summer Yearling" category.

DART Life Stage Filter

DART categorizes PIT Tag observations into three stages: Adult, Juvenile, and Unknown. A life-stage of Adult, Juvenile, or Unknown is assigned to each salmonid PIT Tag detection using PTAGIS data specifications of migration year, release year, release length, observation year, release site, capture method, tagging comments, detection sequences, travel time, detection location and other criteria to determine the stage of the PIT-tagged fish at the time of the detection. The PTAGIS observation data set is an extremely useful resource for monitoring and analyzing the life history and migration patterns of Columbia Basin salmonids. Attaching a life-stage designation (Adult, Juvenile, Unknown) to a PIT tag detection increases the utility of the dataset and allows additional analyses including conversion rates and stray patterns. The DART life stage filter combines the tagging, interrogation, and recapture datasets to determine the life stage at tagging and each subsequent observation. The DART definition of adult is a sexually mature, upstream migrant including precocious, mini-jack, and jack fish.

DART Transportation Filter

DART transport analysis of PTAGIS dataset is conducted annually after the end of the transportation season. DART analyzed 2000 to the present for transportation at Lower Granite, Little Goose, Lower Monumental, and McNary (until operations stopped).

The DART transport filter of the PTAGIS dataset examines fish seen at transport locations and assigns a probable transport outcome to individuals. It is designed to create a list of fish that are expected to be transported based on coil detections but may have extenuating circumstances.

The psql file "Transport_Filter_NEW.psql" is the vehicle for this. Tables involved include transport_proj_list, transport_rel_list, transport_dates, trans_min_max, cbr_transport_exceptions, and trans_dates_dodo.

The first step is to examine the transport schedule as reported by FPC. The results are placed in the table transport_dates. Chinook are added separately because they have multiple run-types. A key statistic is bypass percent.

The table is improved by determining days where fish are collected but the action (bypassed, transported) is recorded on the following day. trans_dates_dodo is the table for this. Its refinements go into transport_dates.

transport_dates is then examined for the min and max transport dates for each species and project. The results are placed in trans_min_max. trans_dates_dodo is examined to extend the dates here as well, if needed.

We then create two lists: transport_proj_list table are fish seen at the transport sites with their max(obs_date) and associated coil_ids. transport_rel_list are fish identified in transportation releases. There is a little overlap here so fish listed as transport releases that are detected at the transport sites are deleted from the transport_proj_list. Project and obs_site names are forced into alignment in these two lists.

Based on PTAGIS site configuration information, fish with absolute non-transport final coils_ids are deleted from the table. The remaining fish are assigned a trans_status codes of 'T' (TRANSPORTED) or 'S' (SAMPLED) depending on the date and location of their last detection at a project. All transportation release fish are assigned an initial code of 'T'.

Any fish not receiving a status code is deleted from the tables.

Then the trans_status codes are examined relative to transport_dates. Fish that are detected on days when bypass exceed 93% have a 'B' (BYPASS) appended to their trans_status. Fish seen at projects outside the transportation date window are also appended with a 'B'. Fish that are held extra days before an action is recorded (trans_dates_dodo) are examined manually after the filter is completed to determine if the fish need an added bypass designation. These additional bypass dates are added programmatically to the filter.

There is significant meta-data regarding project/date combinations where transport operations were compromised. We have two methods of determining these events:

  1. Specific expert information regarding specific releases, projects, and dates.
  2. Careful retrospective analysis of the transportation filter results to identify project/date combinations where a significant percentage of expected transport fish were returned to the river. Subsequent downstream detections are used in this analysis. If 25% of temporally grouped 'T' or 'S' status fish are detected downstream we consider the time period to have a bypass pattern (P).

This intelligence is contained into the table cbr_transport_exceptions. Fish matching the appropriate criteria in the table are assigned the trans_status of TBP (TRANSPORT BYPASS PATTERN) or SBP (SAMPLE BYPASS PATTERN) as listed in the table.

The transport_rel_list is appended to transport_proj_list at this juncture.

There are a number of barge releases that are identified as not satisfying a 'transported' criteria. These 'bad barge trip' fish are assigned a trans_status code of '99'.

Once fish have these designations, they are examined for unexpected downstream PTAGIS detections. Fish seen at a transport site that have received a trans_status designation of 'S', 'T', 'SB', or 'TB' but are seen at a downstream location as a juvenile have a 'D' (DOWNSTREAM) appended to their trans_status.

The transport_proj_list table contains the following transport designations:

Calculating 10 Year Averages

The 10 Year Averages are calculated by DART for each calendar day of data at each project. For the current year and any given project/month/day, the data from the previous 10 years on that calendar day is summed and divided by the number of non-null data points available. Calendar day averaging was chosen because, historically, data observations begin on a specific calendar day. Calendar day averaging gives different results than day of year averaging.

River Environment Glossary

Barometric Pressure
Barometric Pressure is atmospheric pressure at the site, given in mm Hg. It represents an average of hourly measures. Barometric Pressure is measured at Water Quality Monitoring stations in the forebay and tailrace of most projects (see Data Sites Map) and other key locations in the basin. Prior to 1995, the data are from a variety of sources within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Dissolved Gas
Dissolved gas is a measure of the pressure of dissolved gas in the water column. When spillway water plunges into the tailrace nitrogen is forced into the water at higher than normal levels. This condition, called supersaturation, occurs when dissolved gas pressure in the water actually exceeds the atmospheric pressure. The dissolved gas value represents a daily average of hourly meeasures within the range of 600-900 mmHg and is derived from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers gas monitoring efforts. Often collected at irregular intervals, this parameter may be missing values for one or more days, or reported values may be obviously incorrect. Dissolved Gas is measured at Water Quality Monitoring stations in the forebay and tailrace of most projects (see Data Sites Map) and other key locations in the basin. Prior to 1995, the data are from a variety of sources within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Dissolved Gas Percent
Gas percent reflects the degree of total dissolved gas supersaturation in the river at the given location. Gas percent is the daily mean of hourly observations. When gas pressure is exactly the same as the atmospheric pressure, the water is considered to be 100% saturated. If the gas pressure value is higher than atmospheric pressure, gas percent values rise above 100%. Daily averages are calculated from hourly values within the range of 90% to 200%. Gas percent data is often found to be quite noisy due to rapid fluctuations in spill volumes and atmospheric pressures. Dissolved Gas Percent is measured at Water Quality Monitoring stations in the forebay and tailrace of most projects (see Data Sites Map) and other key locations in the basin. Prior to 1995, the data are from a variety of sources within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Elevation
Elevation is given in feet above mean sea level and is a daily average of hourly measures. At most sites this will change less than a fraction of a foot over normal operations. Elevation is measured in the forebay of a project.
Elevation 10 Year Average
Daily average of elevation for a selected 10 year range. For each month and day, the data is summed for the selected 10 years and divided by the number of non-null data points available during that 10 year span.
Inflow
Inflow measurements represent the 24-hour average of hourly measures, reported by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Inflow is given in kcfs, thousands of cubic feet per second.
Outflow
Outflow measurements represent the 24-hour average of hourly measures, reported by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Outflow is given in kcfs, thousands of cubic feet per second. This represents the total outflow at any project, including spill and fish ladder flow.
Outflow 10 Year Average
Daily average of outflow for a selected 10 year range. For each month and day, the data is summed for the selected 10 years and divided by the number of non-null data points available during that 10 year span.
Spill
Spill also is given as a daily average of 24 hourly measures taken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is also given in kcfs.
Spill 10 Year Average
Daily average of spill for a selected 10 year range. For each month and day, the data is summed for the selected 10 years and divided by the number of non-null data points available during that 10 year span.
Spill Percent
Spill Percent is calculated by DART from the daily averaged value for Spill divided by the daily averaged value for Outflow at a project.
Temperature (Scroll Case)
Temperature (Scroll Case) is water temperature in degrees Celsius. This data is measured at the scroll case (part of the powerhouse) at a project. If provided values are in Fahrenheit, they are converted to Celsius. Temperature records are typically not collected outside the salmon migration season, so they are not usually 365 days long. Values above 0 C and below 35 C are averaged for a daily value.
Temperature (Scroll Case) 10 Year Average
Daily average of scroll case temperature for a selected 10 year range. For each month and day, the data is summed for the selected 10 years and divided by the number of non-null data points available during that 10 year span.
Temperature (WQM)
Temperature (WQM) is water temperature in degrees Celsius. This data is measured at Water Quality Monitoring stations in the forebay and tailrace of most projects (see Data Sites Map) and other key locations in the basin. Temperature records are typically not collected outside the salmon migration season, so they are not usually 365 days long. Daily averages are calculated from hourly values above 0 C and below 35 C. Temperature at water quality monitoring stations was not collected prior to 1995.
Temperature (WQM) 10 Year Average
Daily average of water quality monitor temperature for a selected 10 year range. For each month and day, the data is summed for the selected 10 years and divided by the number of non-null data points available during that 10 year span.
Turbidity
Turbidity measures the water clarity, and by inference, the amount of particulate matter present. Turbidity is measured in the forebay or in the fish ladders of a project. Turbidity is reported in feet and measured with a Secchi Disk. In general, the Secchi disk is a 20 cm circular black and white plate. The Secchi disk is attached to a calibrated line and lowered into the water to the depth at which it disappears. The disk is then lifted until it reappears. The arithmetic mean of the two depths is considered the Secchi disk transparency or limit of visibility.
