The chemical, physical, and biological characteristics of water, usually in respect to its suitability for a particular purpose.
Regional assessments of the Nation's water quality--Improved understanding of stream nutrient sources through enhanced modeling capabilities [ More info] Studies of the sources, transport, and fate of nutrients in the streams of six major regions of the conterminous United States.
Relations among land cover, streamflow, and water quality in the North Canadian River Basin near Oklahoma City, Oklahoma: 1968-2009 [ More info] Data explains spatial differences and temporal trends in water quality, specifically dissolved oxygen, nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations.
Reservoir sediment studies in Kansas [ More info] Report of completed reservoir sediment studies in Kansas using a combination of bathymetric surveying, sediment coring, chemical analysis, and statistical analysis to understand the quantity and quality of deposited sediment.
Response of Florida shelf ecosystems to climate change: from macro to micro scales [ More info] Study of the effects of ocean acidification on regional carbonate processes, changes in individual estuaries, and organism-level response.
Response of lake chemistry to atmospheric deposition and climate in selected Class I wilderness areas in the western United States, 1993-2009 [ More info] Sulfate deposition to high-elevation areas has decreased here as a result of reductions in SO2 emissions. Nitrate deposition did not change, whereas ammonium deposition increased, particularly at sites near urban and agricultural areas.
River corridor habitat dynamics, Lower Missouri River [ More info] Detailed description of The Lower Missouri River Corridor Habitat Dynamics Project studying river habitat in a heavily engineered river.
River inventory and monitoring [ More info] Links to science programs on upper Midwest river inventory and monitoring with links to databases on macroinvertebrates, fisheries, vegetation, water quality, bathymetry, floodplain forest, wildlife, sediment, contaminants and nutrients.
SPARROW Modeling of Surface-Water Quality [ More info] A software model for regional interpretation of water-quality monitoring data, estimating origin and fate of contaminants in streams, with documentation, publications and data for the applications.
Science to support the understanding of Ohio's water resources [ More info] Short descriptions of a variety of ongoing USGS studies focused on water resources in Ohio.
Science to support the understanding of south Texas surface-water and groundwater resources in a changing landscape [ More info] Short descriptions of the research and monitoring activities we are carrying out to assist state, local, and Federal agencies dealing with water resource issues in the southern part of the state.
