Groundwater Resources of the New Jersey Coastal Plain

Online maps provide a view into the groundwater resources of 10 confined aquifers beneath Central and Southern New Jersey. These large-scale water-level surveys completed every 5 years provide a regional overview of groundwater conditions and helps water resource managers identify vulnerabilities to ensure their sustainability for current and future groundwater use.

 

Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in the Chesapeake

Findings from US Geological Survey studies on sources, occurrence, effects and risk of contaminants throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

How We Model Stream Temperature in the Delaware River Basin

Neural networks are powerful deep learning models that help us make accurate environmental predictions. This data visualization describes how to train an artificial neural network, and how the USGS uses them to make physically-realistic predictions with less data.

How We Monitor Stream Temperature in the Delaware River Basin

The USGS has been monitoring stream temperature in the Delaware River Basin since 1901, and has amassed over 650,000 daily temperature measurements. This data visualization story explores temporal and locational patterns in stream temperature observations, and how spatial variability and data gaps add complexity to prediction efforts.

USGS Flood Event Viewer

During large, short-term events, the USGS collects streamflow and additional data (including storm tide, wave height, high-water marks, and additional sensor deployments) to aid in documenting flood events. The USGS Flood Event Viewer provides convenient, map-based access to downloadable event-based data.

Water science and management in the Delaware River Basin (data visualization story)

The Delaware River supports thriving ecosystems and drinking water for 16 million people. How water is shared, and the quality of that water, has been the focus of decades of inter-state discussion, negotiation, and research. This data visualization story uses streamflow, salinity, and temperature to show how new USGS science and monitoring can inform water management in this age of cooperation.

Water-Quality Changes in the Nation's Streams and Rivers

The trends mapper provides results from the largest-ever assessment of water-quality changes in the Nation's streams and rivers. More than 185 million water-quality records from over 600 Federal, State, Tribal, and local organizations were screened as part of this assessment.   

The mapper shows stream trends in water chemistry and aquatic ecology for four time periods from 1972-2012. 

National Water Information System (NWIS) Mapper

The National Water Information System (NWIS) Mapper provides access to over 1.5 million sites contained in the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS), including sites where current and historical surface-water, groundwater, springs, and atmospheric data has been collected. Users can search by site type, data type, site number, or place.

Water Quality Portal

The Water Quality Portal integrates and provides access to publicly available water-quality data from databases such as USGS NWIS and BioData, EPA STORET, and USDA-ARS STEWARDS through a single search interface.
