Boreal chorus frog (Pseudacris maculata) calling activity and associated environmental variables collected in the Central Platte River Valley of Nebraska in the spring of 2015, 2016, and 2017. Calling activity derived from sound analysis. Vegetation phenology and wet meadow hydrology derived from image-analysis. Weather and river discharge obtained from NOAA and USGS, respectively. Metadata: Site: study sites; either slough or wet meadow Year: 2015, 2016, or 2017 Date: m/d/yyyy Missing: denotes 1 if calling activity is missing for the day and 0 if data is not missing Count: daily calling activity of boreal chorus frog scaled from 0 - 1 GCC: green chromatic coordinates, vegetation index derived from image analysis HYDRO: scaled 0 - 1 hydropattern; at slough this is USGS Platte River streamflow; at wet meadow this is water inundation from image-analysis WND: average windspeed in MPH PRCP: total daily precipitation accumulation SNOW: total daily snow accumulation (cm) SNWD: daily snow depth (cm) TAVG: daily average temperature (c) TMAX: maximum daily temp (c) TMIN: minimum daily temp (c) PRCP7: weekly precipitation accumulation (cm) PRCP1: day prior daily accumulation (cm) DOY: day of year For further details, see accompanying manuscript 'Assessing ecological and environmental influences on Boreal Chorus Frog (Pseudacris maculata) spring calling phenology using multimodal passive monitoring technologies' and Data-In-Brief.
