Environmental Database For Water-Quality Data for the Penobscot River, Maine: Design Documentation and User Guide

An environmental database was developed to store water-quality data collected during the 1999 U.S. Geological Survey investigation of the occurrence and distribution of dioxins, furans, and PCBs in the riverbed sediment and fish tissue in the Penobscot River in Maine. The database can be used to store a wide range of detailed information and to...

Historical Ice-Out Dates for 29 Lakes in New England

Historical ice-out dates for 29 lakes in New England were compiled and are presented in this report. The length of record for the lakes ranges from 64 to 163 years, with an average of 108 years. Many lakes in New England had their latest recorded ice-out date in 1888. Ice-out dates for lakes are an important hydrologic data series for climate...

Snowpack in Maine - Maximum Observed and March 1 Mean Equivalent Water Content

Historical snow data have been analyzed using geographic information systems software to determine the magnitude and distribution of maximum observed equivalent water content of snowpack for the State of Maine. Data from 109 sites with an average of 43 years of record were used to generate the map of maximum observed equivalent water content....

Data Model and Relational Database Design for Highway Runoff Water-Quality Metadata

A National highway and urban runoff waterquality metadatabase was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration as part of the National Highway Runoff Water-Quality Data and Methodology Synthesis (NDAMS). The database was designed to catalog available literature and to document results of the...

Chemical weathering of the Panola Granite: Solute and regolith elemental fluxes and the weathering rate of biotite

Present-day elemental and mineral weathering rates based on solute fluxes are compared quantitatively to past long-term rates determined from solid-state elemental fractionation in a saprolitic granite regolith at Panola, Georgia, USA. Saturated fluid flow across a low-permeability kaolin duripan controls the rate of steady-state unsaturated flow...

Total Phosphorus Loads for Selected Tributaries to Sebago Lake, Maine

The streamflow and water-quality datacollection networks of the Portland Water District (PWD) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) as of February 2000 were analyzed in terms of their applicability for estimating total phosphorus loads for selected tributaries to Sebago Lake in southern Maine. The long-term unit-area mean annual flows for the...

Composition and Distribution of Streambed Sediments in the Penobscot River, Maine, May 1999

Sediment samples were collected and geophysical surveys were run along 50 miles of the Penobscot River, Maine, in the spring of 1999 to produce maps that describe the composition and distribution of streambed sediments for selected areas in the river channel. The objective of the sediment survey was to locate areas along the river where fine-...

Hydrologic data for the Eastland Woolen Mill Superfund Site, Penobscot County, Corinna, Maine, March through June 1999

Hydrologic data were collected at the Eastland Woolen Mill Superfund Site, Corinna, Maine, from March 19, 1999 through June 11, 1999 as part of a study to formulate a geologic characterization and conceptual model of this study area. Data-collection consisted of measurements of water-surface elevations at 7 surface-water sites and 20 wells.

Balancing Ground-Water Withdrawals and Streamflow in the Hunt-Annaquatucket-Pettaquamscutt Basin, Rhode Island

Ground water withdrawn for water supply reduces streamflow in the Hunt-Annaquatucket-Pettaquamscutt Basin in Rhode Island. These reductions may adversely affect aquatic habitats. A hydrologic model was prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Rhode Island Water Resources Board, Town of North Kingstown, Rhode Island Department...

Methodology and significance of studies of atmospheric deposition in highway runoff

Atmospheric deposition and the processes that are involved in causing and altering atmospheric deposition in relation to highway surfaces and runoff were evaluated nationwide. Wet deposition is more easily monitored than dry deposition, and data on wet deposition are available for major elements and water properties (constituents affecting acid...
