Quality assurance data to evaluate the vertical accuracy of the bathymetric data for Beaver Lake near Rogers, Arkansas, 2018

Beaver Lake was constructed in 1966 on the White River in the northwest corner of Arkansas for flood control, hydroelectric power, public water supply, and recreation. The surface area of Beaver Lake is about 27,900 acres and approximately 449 miles of shoreline are at the conservation pool level (1,120 feet above the North American Vertical Datum of 1988).

Time Series of Dye Concentrations at Fixed Stations During a Tracer Study on the Lower Sandusky River, Ohio, July 11-12, 2017

A dye tracer study was completed on the lower Sandusky River between July 11-13, 2017, during a confirmed Grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) spawning event. The data contained in this data release include time series of dye concentration at fixed stations downstream of the injection site. Six submersible fluorometers (Turner Designs C3 [Trademark] fluorometers) were deployed at

Peak-flow frequency analysis for USGS 05494300 Fox River at Bloomfield, Iowa, in the Fox River Basin Iowa, based on data through water year 2018

This data release presents a peak-flow frequency analysis for USGS 05494300 Fox River at Bloomfield, Iowa, that was based on methods described by Eash and others (2013)(https://pubs.usgs.gov/sir/2013/5086/). The methods are used to provide estimates of peak-flow quantiles for 50-, 20-, 10-, 4-, 2-, 1-, 0.5-, and 0.2-percent annual exceedance...

Terrestrial Laser Scanning Data from Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park, Nevada County, California, 2014-17

High-resolution, terrestrial laser scanning (TLS), was used to quantify the volume of sediment eroded from outcrops at Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park, located about 17 kilometers (km) northeast of Grass Valley, California. TLS was used to create centimeter-scale, three-dimensional (3-D) maps of the complex outcrop surfaces, which could not be mapped non-destructively

Channel bed elevations for a 5-mile reach on the Maumelle River upstream of Lake Maumelle near Little Rock, Arkansas, 2019

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) did a bathymetric survey of the lower reach of the Maumelle River upstream of Lake Maumelle, near Little Rock, Arkansas, from July 9—11, 2019. Channel bed elevations (thalweg) were collected to support a USACE modeling effort on a 5-mile reach of the Maumelle River. In parts
