Data to document shoreline erosion at selected locations along Lake Sharpe on the Lower Brule Reservation in South Dakota, 1966-2015

The U.S. Geological Survey Dakota Water Science Center, in cooperation with the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, have been collecting data to document shoreline erosion along Lake Sharpe and within the Lower Brule Reservation. This data release includes data collected and compiled from four efforts: shorelines were digitized from existing available maps and aerial imagery to record shoreline locations...

Time-lapse video of photographs of the Lake Sharpe Shoreline near Lower Brule, South Dakota, 2013-15

A sequence of images were captured automatically from trail cameras placed at three locations along the Lake Sharpe Shoreline near Lower Brule, South Dakota. The images were reviewed, and the best daylight image from each day was selected. The daily images were then displayed sequentially and recorded at 10 frames per second, creating a time-lapse video. The still images and videos in this...

Historical shoreline traces of Lake Sharpe near Lower Brule, South Dakota, 1966-2010

The 1966 USGS 7.5 minute quadrangle map and aerial imagery available for the years of 1991, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2010 was used to trace the shoreline of Lake Sharpe near Lower Brule, South Dakota. The Heads-up digitizing in ArcMap was used to trace shorelines from the 1966 quadrangle map and the aerial imagery. The resulting shoreline trace lines were saved in shapefile format. This...

Aerial imagery basemap for the Lake Sharpe shoreline near Lower Brule, South Dakota, captured from an unmanned aerial system, August, 2012

A Raven RQ-11A unmanned aerial system, equipped with an on-board video camera and global positioning system, was used to capture video of a seven mile reach of Lake Sharpe Shoreline near Lower Brule, South Dakota in August of 2012. This dataset is a basemap derived from still images captured from the video, georeferenced using information from the on-board global positioning system and a...

Surveyed bank locations of the Lake Sharpe shoreline at selected locations on the Lower Brule Reservation, South Dakota, 2010-2015

Real-time kinematic global navigation satellite system equipment was used to survey the edge of bank at selected locations on the Lake Sharpe shoreline near Lower Brule South Dakota at intervals from 2010-2015. This work was completed by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe Environmental Protection Office.

National Water Information System (NWIS) Mapper

The NWIS mapper provides access to over 1.5 million sites contained in the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS), including sites where current and historical surface-water, groundwater, springs, and atmospheric data has been collected. Users can search by site type, data type, site number, or place.

South Dakota Surface Water Data

Real-time, daily, peak-flow, field measurements, and statistics of current and historical data that describe stream levels, streamflow (discharge), reservoir and lake levels, surface-water quality, and rainfall in Wisconsin. Surface-water data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

South Dakota Water Quality Data

At selected surface-water and groundwater sites, the USGS maintains instruments that continuously record physical and chemical characteristics of the water including pH, specific conductance, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and percent dissolved-oxygen saturation. Supporting data such as air temperature and barometric pressure are also available at some sites.

South Dakota Ground Water Data

Data from wells, springs, test holes, tunnels, drains, and excavations in South Dakota; well location data includes information such as latitude and longitude, well depth, and aquifer. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.
