Female Faxonius (formerly Orconectes) quadruncus broodstock for toxicity testing

Broodstock, individual Faxonius quadruncus, were collected for culturing eggs until hatch. Hatchling crayfish were to be used in toxicity testing to assess hazards of metals mixtures to young Faxonius quadruncus

Fairview Reach of Yellowstone River Hydrodynamic Model Outputs

Data set contains depth and velocity grids centerpoints generated from hydrodynamic model (SRH-2D) simulations run for a range of discharges. Date range corresponds to month(s) that bathymetric survey was performed. Three study reaches were considered in this analysis: the Fairview reach of the Yellowstone River, MT, the Miami and Lisbon-Jameson reaches of the Lower Missouir River.

Radiation Data in support of manuscript "Pre-mining trace element and radiation exposure to biota from a breccia pipe uranium mine in the Grand Canyon (Arizona, USA) watershed"

The risks to wildlife and humans from uranium (U) mining to the Grand Canyon watershed are largely unknown. In addition to U, other co-occurring ore constituents contribute to risks to biological receptors depending on their toxicological profiles. This data was collected to characterize the pre-mining concentrations of total arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), lead

Soil chemistry adjacent to roads treated with dust control products at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge

The health of soils along roadways is critical for maximizing habitat quality and minimizing negative ecological effects of roads. Adjacent to unpaved roads, soil chemistry may be altered by the deposition of dust, as well as by road treatment with dust suppressants or soil stabilizer products. If present in roadside soils, these product residues may be available to plants, terrestrial in

Stable C and N isotope values in Kemp's Ridley sea turtle scutes in the northern Gulf of Mexico, 2010 to 2012

Following an explosion at the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig on April 20, 2010, MC252 an estimated 3.19 million barrels of oil leaked into the Northern Gulf of Mexico over 87 days. The endangered Kemp's ridley sea turtle (Lepidochelys kempii [Lk]) has a long established record of using the area near the well as primary foraging grounds. Resulting short- and long-term negative impact

Data in support of manuscript "Evaluation of Chemical Control for Invasive Crayfish at a Warmwater Fish Production Hatchery"

Invasive crayfish are known to displace native crayfish species, alter aquatic habitat and community structure and function, and are serious pests for fish hatcheries. White River Crawfish (WRC; Procambarus acutus) were inadvertently introduced to a warm-water fish hatchery in Missouri, USA, possibly in an incoming fish shipment. We evaluated the use of chemical control for crayfi

Missouri River 2011 Regional Sand Floodplain

This is a polygon coverage of sand deposits from the 2011 Missouri River flood. The polygon coverages were compiled from classification of 26 multispectral SPOT (Système Pour l’Observation de la Terre) 4 and 5 satellite images colleted during October and November, 2011. The dataset covers 1,298 km of the Missouri River valley bottom from Gavins Point Dam in South Dakota to th
