New York Water Science Center

Data and Tools

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.

Geospatial dataset 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 include ADCP-measured transect data and manually-measured point data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey, Ithaca, N.Y., during November 16-20, 2015. These data were used by the GIS Program, City of Ithaca, N.Y., to create...

Bathymetric contours of lower Sixmile Creek reservoir, Ithaca, New York, 1938

Water depths for the lower Sixmile Creek reservoir in Ithaca, Tompkins County, N.Y. that were measured during 1938 were found in the files of the GIS Program, City of Ithaca. This agency computed bathymetric elevations and created a bathymetric surface (TIN) of the reservoir. A contour-line shapefile was created from this TIN.
