Whole rock geochemistry and uranium-lead isotopic data from Mesoproterozoic rocks in the Eagle Lake quadrangle, Essex County, New York

This data release includes whole rock (WR) geochemical data, and uranium-lead isotopic data collected using a sensitive high resolution ion microprobe-reverse geometry (SHRIMP-RG) instrument; the SHRIMP-RG is a type of secondary ion mass spectrometer (SIMS). Whole rock geochemistry data were analyzed at Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd. Laboratories in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. SHR

Borehole data for pre-Middle Jurassic basement rocks beneath the Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plains, Florida and Alabama

Data from 316 boreholes (including coreholes) that penetrated buried pre-Middle Jurassic basement rocks that lie beneath Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plain sedimentary deposits in Florida and Alabama were compiled from non-proprietary, mostly published sources in order to support subsurface geologic mapping, geologic interpretation of geophysical data (aeromagnetic, gravity, seismic), topical studies

Database for the isopach map of the Brightseat Formation and Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary in Maryland and Virginia

The goal of the Atlantic Subsurface Stratigraphic Initiative (ASSI) is to create isopach and structural contour maps for all Coastal Plain formations within the Salisbury Embayment of Maryland and Virginia. Detailed information regarding thicknesses and extent of formations across state boundaries can then be utilized for more accurate documentation of the subaerial extent of aquifers across state

Data Release to Multi-proxy record of ocean-climate variability during the last 2 millennia on the Mackenzie Shelf, Beaufort Sea (2013)

A 2,000 year-long oceanographic history of a Canadian Beaufort Sea continental shelf site (60-meters water depth) near the Mackenzie River outlet is reconstructed from various proxies: ostracode faunal assemblages, shell stable isotope ratios (δ18O, δ13C) and sediment biogenic silica. These proxies are extracted from three sediment cores that made a composite section, HLY1302 JPC32, GGC30, MC29. T

Evidence for strain induced graphitization across a ductile fault zone

A suite of slate samples collected along a 2 km transect crossing the Lishan Fault in central Taiwan were evaluated to assess the role of ductile strain energy in natural graphitization at greenschist facies metamorphic conditions. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) imaging documents phyllosilicate and quartz replacement textures consistent cleavage development via dissolution-precipitation proces

Fish communities in Shenandoah Valley streams, 2021

From 16 June to 30 July, 2021, a Virginia Tech team of 4-6 sampled the fish community in 30 Shenandoah Valley streams (Virginia and West Virginia, USA) as part of a larger stream-health study including other teams who surveyed geomorphology, water quality, flow, temperature, macroinvertebrates, and fish health at the same 30 streams. The fish community team also sampled three additional bonus stre

United States Gulf Coast Basin Curated Wells and Logs Database

The United States Gulf Coast Basin Curated Wells and Logs Database (CWLDB) is an online repository with stratigraphic information for petroleum wells in the United States portion of the onshore Gulf of Mexico Basin that provides several of the following attributes: a) deep penetrations (generally, total depth of 10,000 feet or more), b) high quality and diverse geophysical well log suites, c) lith

Alkenone temperature estimates from the Miocene (Burdigalian, Langhian, Tortonian) and Pliocene (Zanclean) Atlantic Coastal Plain sediments

This dataset collects sea surface temperature data generated through alkenone analysis of Neogene sediments collected from cores and outcrops of the Virginia and Maryland Atlantic Coastal Plain.

Locations of small-scale diamond and gold dredges detected using Synthetic Aperture Radar on the Kadéï (Sangha) River, Central African Republic

This data release catalogs the locations of small-scale diamond and gold mining dredges on the Kadéï (Sangha) River, Central African Republic from the years 2015 to 2019. The Kadéï river flows through the Nola prefecture in the CAR and is known to host placer diamond deposits. The dataset was developed through visual interpretation of 387 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) scenes. The point shapefile

40Ar/39Ar data from the Gidami gold deposit, Egypt

This data release includes 40Ar/39Ar data from the U.S. Geological Survey for samples from the Gidami gold deposit in the Eastern Desert of Egypt. Rock samples were collected by Basem Zoheir--Benha University/University of Kiel. Potassium-bearing mineral grains were separated from the bulk sample and analyzed by argon geochronology at the U.S. Geological Survey Bascom ARgon Dating (BARD) Laborator

Whole Rock Geochemistry and Uranium Lead Isotopic Data from the Dinwiddie Terrane, Virginia, USA

This data release includes whole rock geochemical data, and uranium-lead isotopic data collected by both Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) and Sensitive High Resolution Ion Microprobe-Reverse Geometry (SHRIMP-RG) methods. Whole rock geochemistry was collected by Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, Ontario. LA-ICP-MS data was collected at the PLASMA at the USG

Feature dataset GeologicMap, part of Geologic Map of Northeasternmost Tennessee, and Adjacent Parts of Virginia and North Carolina

The geology of an area of 660 square miles mostly in the northeastern corner of Tennessee and small adjacent areas in Virginia and North Carolina is the subject of this report. The region lies principally in the Unaka province, with extensions northwestward into the Appalachian Valley and southwestward into the Blue Ridge province. The report combines results of surveys made between 1941 and 1953
