Natural and managed components of the water-budget from 2008–2012 for 43 HUC10s in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin, Georgia, U.S.

A simple water budget includes precipitation, streamflow, change in storage, evapotranspiration, and residuals: P=Q + ET + ΔS + e. It is essential to include the managed component (i.e., the “human” component) to close the water budget and reduce the magnitude of the residuals from “natural” water budgets. Some of the largest components

Flood Inundation Maps for the Amite and Comite Rivers from State Highway 64 to U.S. Highway 190 – City of Central, Louisiana

The State of Louisiana experienced widespread flooding during the extreme rainfall events of March and August 2016. The City of Central, Louisiana, which lies above the confluence of the Amite and Comite Rivers, is bordered on the East and West respectively by these rivers. The city had extensive damage from both events, in particular the August 2016 flood in which the river basins received up...

Solar radiation for National Hydrography Dataset, version 2 catchments in the southeastern United States, 1950 - 2010 at 12-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC12) pour points

This study is based on contiguous direct normal irradiance information from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Specifically, these data represent both 12-month specific average and annual average daily total solar resource averaged over surface cells of 0.1 degrees in both latitude and longitude. Spacing is about 10 kilometers in size. Direct normal irradiance is the amount of solar...

Bathymetry and Storage Capacity of Dierks Lake, Arkansas

A bathymetric survey of Dierks Lake, Arkansas, was conducted in late June - early July 2018 by the Lower Mississippi-Gulf Water Science Center of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) using methodologies for sonar surveys similar to those described by Wilson and Richards (2006) and Richards and Huizinga (2018). Data from the bathymetric survey were combined with data from an aerial L

Names of 10-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC10) watersheds in the state of Tennessee

This data release consists of the data used to develop SPAtially Referenced Regression On Watershed(SPARROW) attributes models for estimating loads of total phosphorus and total nitrogen in Tennessee streams. These data support the publication containing the Tennessee SPARROW models results (Hoos and others, 2019) and include model input used in the South Atlantic-Gulf Drainages and Ten

3) Streambed particle data

Seventeen streamflow-gaging stations, operated by the U.S. Geological Survey and distributed across the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma were selected for analysis. Bed material sampling was conducted to obtain information on the particle-size distributions of the streambed materials and to determine the shapes of the individual particles comprising the streambeds. Information on...

Estimated quantiles for the pour points of 9,203 level-12 hydrologic unit codes in the southeastern United States, 1950--2009

This page contains 15 estimated quantiles for 9,203 level-12 Hydrologic Unit Code in the Southeastern United States for the decades 1950-1959, 1960-1969, 1970-1979, 1980-1989, 1990-1999, and 2000-2009. A multi-output neural network was used to generate the estimated quantiles (Worland and others, 2019). The R scripts that generated the predictions are also included along with a

Regional Hydraulic Geometry Characteristics of Stream Channels in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas

Seventeen streamflow-gaging stations, operated by the U.S. Geological Survey and distributed across the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma were selected for analysis. Regional hydraulic geometry curves relating drainage area to bankfull dimensions -- cross-sectional area, top width, mean depth, and streamflow -- were developed from data collected at the selected streamflow-gaging

Digitized Contours from Georeferenced Plate 1996 from "Louisiana Ground-Water Map No. 13: Hydrogeology and Potentiometric Surface of the Sparta Aquifer in Northern Louisiana, October 1996" (Brantly, Seanor, and McCoy 2002)

This report describes the thickness and areal extent of the Sparta aquifer, identifies sands within the fresh-water extent of the aquifer, and presents data and a map that illustrate the generalized potentiometric surface (water levels) during October 1996. The report includes a detailed geophysical log, structure contour maps, hydrogeologic sections, and hydrographs of water levels

Digitized Contour from Georeferenced plate 2007 from "Potentiometric Surface in the Sparta-Memphis Aquifer of the Mississippi Embayment, Spring 2007" (Shrader, 2008)

The most widely used aquifer for industry and public supply in the Mississippi embayment in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee is the Sparta-Memphis aquifer. Decades of pumping from the Sparta-Memphis aquifer have affected ground-water levels throughout the Mississippi embayment. Regional assessments of water-level data from the aquifer are important to document regional water-...
