Vernal Pool Inundation Models

This website provides an application for exploring modeling results from a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) project titled Mapping Climate Change Resistant Vernal Pools in the Northeastern U.S. The purpose of this project was to improve understanding of the factors that control inundation patterns in vernal pools of the northeastern United States, so as to identify pools that might function as...

DroughtWatch: Surface Water Conditions in Tennessee

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has a network of surface-water real-time monitoring stations in Tennessee. The network provides real-time water-stage data along with computed streamflow at many of these locations, and rainfall recorded at some stations. These sites continuously record data on 15-minute intervals and transmit the data via satellite to be incorporated into the USGS National Water...

Tennessee DroughtWatch

This map (from USGS's National Drought Watch Web site) shows the 7-day average streamflow conditions in hydrologic units. Thus, the map shows conditions adjusted for this time of the year. The colors represent 7-day average streamflow percentiles for the day of the year. USGS sites having at least 30 years of record are used. The data used to produce this map are provisional and have not been...
