Data

Continuous and discrete surface-water, groundwater, and water-quality data are collected to provide long-term hydrologic records critical to investigating hydrology, modeling climate-change, evaluating natural and anthropogenic changes in the hydrologic regime, and providing information on water availability to water managers.

Interpolated groundwater-level surface, spring 2017, Bazile Groundwater Management Area, northeastern Nebraska

This data set is a raster that represents the groundwater-level surface within the Bazile Groundwater Management Area (BGMA) in spring of 2017. This raster was created for use within the Geoscene3D program which combines airborne electromagnetic geophysical data along with supporting information for visualization and geological modeling. A water-level surface was created as input to a Geoscene3D p

Modeling Escherichia coli in the Missouri River near Omaha, Nebraska, 2012-16: Model Inputs and Outputs

This data release contains the inputs and outputs from the development of Escherichia coli (E. coli) concentration models for the four Missouri River sites near Omaha, Nebraska. Model development, models, and results are published in the associated U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report Densmore and others, 2020. Load Estimator models (LOADEST) (Runkel and others, 2004) were developed from the first

Flood-inundation geospatial datasets for the North Platte River at Scottsbluff and Gering, Nebraska

Digital flood-inundation maps for an 8.8-mile reach of the North Platte River, from 1.5 miles upstream of the Highway 92 bridge to 3 miles downstream of the Highway 71 bridge, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Cities of Scottsbluff and Gering. The flood-inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science website at http:/

Water-level and aerial thermal infrared imagery data collected along the lower Platte and Elkhorn Rivers, Nebraska, 2016-2017

This dataset includes measured water-levels, water-level contours, aerial thermal infrared (TIR) imagery, and a stream centerline that were used to describe groundwater movement and interaction with surface water between the lower Platte and lower Elkhorn Rivers upstream of their confluence. The study design described herein focused on understanding seasonal characteristics of groundwater movemen

Flood-inundation geospatial datasets for the Salamonie River at Portland, Indiana

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 6.5-mile reach of the Salamonie River at Portland, Indiana, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Transportation. The flood-inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science website at https://water.usgs.gov/osw/flood_inundation/, depict estimates of the areal extent

Monitoring Data for Willow Creek Lake, Nebraska, 2012-14

Monitoring data were collected from the Willow Creek drainage basin and Willow Creek Lake with a focus on 2012-14. Included are datasets of meteorology; lake measurements of water levels, sediment nutrients, and physical, chemical, and biological data; streamflow and stream chemistry; and calculated nutrient loads to the lake.

Niobrara River suspended-sediment and bed-sediment data collected during hydroelectric dam flush near Spencer, Nebr., October through November, 2014

In the fall of 2014 (October-November) the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers collected sediment samples (suspended and bed material) at several sites on the Niobrara River in Nebraska near the Spencer Dam prior to, during, and immediately after a sediment-flushing event. Suspended-sediment samples were analyzed for sediment concentration and percent finer

Water-level and digital data for the Elkhorn and Loup River Basins groundwater flow model, Phase Three

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Lewis and Clark, Lower Elkhorn, Lower Loup, Lower Platte North, Lower Niobrara, Middle Niobrara, Upper Elkhorn, and the Upper Loup Natural Resources Districts, designed a study to refine the spatial and temporal discretization of a previously modeled area. This updated study focused on a 30,000-square-mile area of the High Plains aquifer and cons

Direct-push sediment cores, resistivity profiles, and depth-averaged resistivity collected for Platte River Recovery and Implementation Program in Phelps County, Nebraska

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in collaboration with the Platte River Recovery and Implementation Program, collected capacitively coupled (CC) resistivity data and six direct push sediment cores to identify the coarsest alluvial deposits underlying the Morse properties in central Nebraska to supplement the subsurface geologic information, for the purposes of proper siting of intentional rechar

Streambed sediment data for Missouri and Niobrara Rivers, Nebraska and South Dakota, 2015

Deltaic sand deposits at the head of Lewis and Clark Lake, Nebraska-South Dakota were investigated for suitability for use as a proppant feedstock resource in unconventional oil or gas production. The physical characteristics of the deposits are described in four supplemental data sets in varied file formats. First, for the direct-push cores collected at four sandbar complexes in the Missouri Rive

Datasets from maps of water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer in parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming, predevelopment (about 1950) to 2015

Dataset of wells used to create map and raster of map of water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer in parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming, predevelopment (about 1950) to 2015 and 2013 to 2015.
