Decision-Support Tool to Estimate SARS-CoV-2 Human-to-bat Transmission Risk

This application is designed to evaluate the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission from humans to North American bats during winter field work and specifically surveys of winter roosts and hibernacula for white-nose syndrome.

Explore and Request Data from the BBL

Explore bird banders’ data and learn how many birds have been banded and encountered since 1960. Banding and encounter data are available for request for research purposes. Discover specific banding and encounter data, the number of birds banded per species group, or learn about the lab’s species longevity records.

Avian Influenza Geonarrative

The USGS Ecosystems Mission Area provides science to understand wildlife diseases, including avian influenza (AI). Avian influenza viruses occur naturally in wild birds such as ducks, geese, swans, and gulls. These viruses generally do not cause illness in wild birds but they can be highly pathogenic and cause illness and death in poultry and wildlife. Learn more with this geonarrative.

USGS Chesapeake Bay Studies - Data Catalog

The Chesapeake Data Catalog Application is designed to allow users to identify and interact with datasets used in and across efforts related to the USGS Chesapeake Bay Watershed studies. Metadata gathered for items included in the Catalog for which this app was developed are intended to inform users of dataset details, indicate best practice

U.S. Geological Survey COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance

USGS, as part of the National Wastewater Surveillance System, designed and implemented high-frequency sampling of wastewater across six states throughout September 2021, to support tracking of potential increases in COVID-19 infections in communities. COVID-19 viral loads were determined for each sample with the goal of delivering results to the CDC within three days of sampling. 

Habitat Vulnerability Assessment for Wintering American Black Ducks

We estimated food availability among five main wetland cover types used by overwintering American Black Ducks: subtidal, fresh water, high marsh, low marsh, and mudflat. Bioenergetics models used to inform North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) can be simplified into two major components: energetic demand and energetic supply. 

Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in the Chesapeake

Findings from US Geological Survey studies on sources, occurrence, effects and risk of contaminants throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Fish Species Observations from Inland Chesapeake Bay Watershed Fish Samples

The following map summarizes data compiled within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Inland Fisheries Database which comprises fish sampling data collected by federal and state agencies, river basin commissions, universities, and other organizations across the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Story Map: Avian Influenza in the United States

This story map explores the role USGS scientists play in understanding the risks presented by avian influenza, and how their work is being used to predict areas of transmission risk.

Whole Wildlife Toxicology Catalog

The Whole Wildlife Toxicology Catalog is a compilation of websites containing toxicological information related to amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals that may be of value to scientists, risk assessors, regulators and natural resource managers.
