Overview
This Excel workbook is designed to assist the user enter the raw data collected from each site. The regression equations needed to calculate the
variable subindex score for each wetland function are already entered into this spreadsheet. Gray blocks within the spreadsheet designate the presence
of these equations. Other equations, such as English to metric conversions, are also present in gray blocks. White blocks indicate where the user is
expected to enter their data. The worksheets are password protected; therefore information can only be entered in the white blocks. The tab key can be
used to navigate to each cell where data may be entered. All data should be entered in English units.

Each category, along with the corresponding variables, is located in one of four worksheets. These worksheets are labeled by category. Also included
in this calc book is a title sheet, functional capacity indices (functions) worksheet, summary sheet, FCI-FCU worksheet, vegetation field form, and soils
field form.

This workbook is designed to calculate the variable subindices and FCI's for one site.

Sheet-by-Sheet Instructions
Title Sheet: Enter the date, project name and location, team members, and comments as needed. This data is not
mandatory for any calculations.

Vegetation:
V GRASSCONT: Record the perimeter of the wetland and the amount of grassland along the perimeter in feet.

V GRASSWIDTH: Assign 12 points placed at equal intervals around the perimeter of the wetland boundary. It is
recommended that the first point be located on the northern edge of the wetland and that the
remaining points correspond to the hours of a clock. From each point, measure, perpendicular from the
edge of the wetland, the width of the adjacent grassland from the edge of the wetland out to a distance
of 50 feet. Record this width, in feet, in the white blocks.

V VEGCOMP: Stratify the wetland by vegetation zones and/or plant community types dominant. Enter the name or
number of the zone in the appropriate white block. The 'Vegetation Zone' blocks are not included in
calculations, therefore are optional. Record all plant species in the 'species name' column under the
appropriate vegetation zone. Do not duplicate plant names. Enter the coefficient of conservatism
(see Appendix C of the Prairie Potholes HGM guidebook) in the 'C value' column next to the species name.
Soil:
V RECHARGE: One of three methods is to be used to determine this subindex variable. Either use the table in the calc
book, or use on-site mapping together with Appendix C-4 of the guidebook to determine the recharge
potential, or use the NWI water regime (PEMA=soil recharge potential 1.0, PEMC=soil recharge
potential 0.5). Record the soil recharge potential in the appropriate white block.

V SED: Enter data for Eastern OR Western Prairie Potholes, NOT both. Record the mean depth to the B
horizon, in inches, for at least 4 pits. The calc book will copy the subindex score at the bottom of the
VSED section for use in the FCI calculation.

V SQI: Dig a hole 18 inches deep and take a vertical slice 18 inches deep for examination. Use the SQI table to
determine the SQI for each soil property. Sum the SQI scores for the sample. Repeat this for a total of
4 samples and record the SQI scores in the white blocks.

V SOM: One of two methods can be used to calculate the subindex for VSOM. Choose either the indirect or
direct measurements option; do not use both. For indirect measurements, first record the litter depth,
in inches, at 4 locations. Next, take a vertical slice of soil 18 inches deep. Moisten the soil and examine
in good sunlight. Determine color using the Munsell Soil Color Chart. Repeat this for a total of 4
samples. Record the hue, value, and chroma in the white blocks for each sample. For hues of 'N', enter
0 and for hues or values of 2.5, enter 2. VSQI also needs to be completed in order to calculate the
Percent Organic Carbon through indirect measurements.

For direct measurements, take 4 soil samples from the wet meadow vegetative zone at a depth of 0 - 6
inches. Mix the 4 samples together and bag for lab analysis. Repeat for 6 -12 inch depth and send
samples to the lab. Record the lab results in the appropriate white blocks. The variable subindex for
VSOM will be shown at the bottom of this section regardless of which method was used.

Hydrogeomorphic:
V OUT: Record all elevations in feet. Elevations can be recorded in rod readings or converted mean sea level
or assumed elevation. Record the historic invert elevation in relation to wetland maximum depth. Record
the present or constructed invert elevation. Record the elevation of the edge of the historic wetland and
the elevation of a representative deepest portion of the wetland. In line f) enter the % volume of pit/fill
vs. wetland if evaluating a pit or fill, otherwise enter 0.
V SUBOUT: The depth and distance of surface drainage invert from WAA edge and the location/spacing of subsurface
tile is optional information that can be recorded for reference by the user. Use the table to determine the
subindex score for VSUBOUT and record in the white block.

V SOURCE: Record the information in section b) as needed. This information is optional. Use the table to determine
the subindex score for VSOURCE and record in the white block.

V EDGE: The perimeter, in feet, is copied from VGRASSCONT. Record the area, in acres, in the white block.

V CATCHWET: The area of the wetland is copied from VEDGE. Record the area of the catchment, in acres, in the white
block.

Landuse & Landscape:
V UPUSE: Record the total acre size of the present-day catchment (acres). Determine the land use category and
corresponding curve number of the catchment using the table. Record the amount of acres for each
category in the white block to the right of each curve number. Be sure that the sum of acres entered in
the 'Acres of Current Land Use' column equals the total acre size of the present-day catchment.

V WETPROX: Record the distance, in feet, from the edge of the assessment wetland to the edges of the nearest 5
palustrine wetlands and record in the white blocks.

V WETAREA: Record the acres of palustrine wetlands within a 1-mile radius from the center of the reference wetland.

V BASINS: Use NWI inventory maps composited with the USGS 7.5 minute quadrangle(s) to record the number of
palustrine wetlands within a 1-mile radius from the center of the reference wetland.

V HABFRAG: Sum the length of all roads and linear attributes within a 1-mile radius from the center of the reference
wetland. Linear attributes included from NWI mapping are the 'd' or 'x' modifiers.

Functions: Do not enter any data in this worksheet. The FCI's are automatically computed using data entered in previous
worksheets.

Summary Sheet: Do not enter any data in this worksheet. This sheet summarizes all the data entered for each variable as well as the
subindex scores, FCI's, and FCU's.
FCI/FCU Worksheet: This worksheet can be used to forecast and backcast functional changes in the wetland. Gray blocks indicate data
that will be automatically entered from previous sheets and cannot be changed. All other blocks can be changed
as needed.

Vegetation Field Form: Data cannot be entered in this worksheet. Instead, print this form and complete in the field.

Soils Field Form: Data cannot be entered in this worksheet. Instead, print this form and complete in the field.

Use NWI inventory maps composited with the USGS 7.5 minute quadrangle(s) to record:

a) The length (miles) of all roads and linear attributes within a 1-mile (1.6-km) radius from the
center of the reference wetland:
miles converted to kilometers:

USER NOTE: Linear attributes included from NWI mapping are the "d" or "x" modifiers.

b) VARIABLE SUBINDEX SCORE for VHABFRAG:

y = -0.1107x + 1.6803
