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.

Community composition data for assessing fish populations in headwater streams of the Adirondack Mountains, New York, USA

Community composition data for assessing fish populations in headwater streams of the Adirondack Mountains, New York, USA. Data were collected to assess fish communities and estimate population size and biomass for each species at each sampling site. All data collected from western portion of Adirondack Park or immediately adjacent to it. Each row represents one individual fish. This spreadsheet c

Crest-Stage Gage Network (New York)

In cooperation with the New York State Department of Transportation, the New York Water Science Center maintains a network of crest-stage gages to improve flood frequency statistics generated at locations across the state.

Geospatial data set of bathymetric survey of lower Sixmile Creek Reservoir, Ithaca, New York, 2015

Water depths were measured during November 2015 and bathymetric elevations were computed for the lower Sixmile Creek reservoir in Ithaca, Tompkins County, N.Y. These data were used to create a bathymetric surface (TIN) of the reservoir. Data collected in 1938 were used to create a second TIN and a contour line shapefile. This dataset includes the ADCP-measured transect data and manually-measured p

Data from 10-day sediment toxicity tests of bed sediments from the Niagara River Area of Concern and tributaries, New York, with Chironomus dilutus and Hyalella azteca, 201415

Data from 10-day sediment toxicity tests of bed sediments from the Niagara River and tributaries, Niagara and Erie County, New York. Specifically, the data was used to compare the survival and growth of two macroinvertebrate species in sediments from study sites and laboratory controls. Results are from 10-day sediment exposures of two test species, Chironomus dilutus and Hyalella azteca. Bed-sedi
