Bathymetry of the Green River near Brownsville, Kentucky, July 2023

These data are bathymetry (river bottom elevation) in XYZ format (Easting, Northing, Elevation), generated from the July 24–25, 2023, and July 31, 2023, bathymetric survey of the Green River near Brownsville, Kentucky, from approximately 1.5 miles downstream from the Brownsville boat ramp to approximately 0.8 mile upstream from the former Green River Lock and Dam #6 site (3.8 miles total reach len

Geospatial datasets and hydraulic model for the flood-inundation study of Fourmile Creek at Silver Grove, Kentucky

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 3.4-mile reach of Fourmile Creek at Silver Grove, Kentucky, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the City of Silver Grove and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District. Because the City of Silver Grove is subject to flooding from Fourmile Creek and the Ohio River (backwater flooding up Fourmile Creek), a set of flood-i

Water Availability Tool for Environmental Resources for Haw Creek, Indiana

The Water Availability Tool for Environmental Resources (WATER-KY; Williamson and others, 2009) provides the ability to simulate streamflow for ungaged basins. This model integrates TOPMODEL (Beven and Kirkby, 1979) for pervious portions of the landscape with simulation of flow generated from impervious surfaces (USDA, 1986). A restructured version of this decision support tool translates the abil

Machine learning with satellite imagery to document the historical transition from topographic to dense sub-surface agricultural drainage networks (tile drains)

Image library of (1) tile-drained landscapes and (2) tile-drain types that will be used for a machine-learning model workflow that identifies (1) tile-drained landscapes and (2) differentiates two types of tile-drained areas visible in satellite imagery. These images were sourced from WorldView and Quickbird satellite imagery (copyright DigitalGlobe) and cropped to features of interest. Imagery ha

A national harmonized dataset of discrete chlorophyll from lakes and streams (2005-2022)

This data release contains a 17-year record (2005-2022) of discrete chlorophyll data from inland waters, collected from across the nation and territories. These data are from discrete samples (collected in the field and analyzed in the laboratory) from plankton (suspended algae) and periphyton (benthic algae) from lakes, streams, rivers, reservoirs, canals, and other sites. These data are gathered

Continuous meteorological and soil data to support understanding of nutrient and sediment loads from overland and subsurface-tile flow at paired edge-of-field agricultural sites, 2015–21, Black Creek watershed, near Harlan, Indiana, USA

This data release includes meteorological and soil information collected from calendar years 2015 to 2021 (water years 2016 to 2021) that include air temperature, soil temperature, soil moisture and solar radiation monitored at a site in the Black Creek subwatershed near Harlan, Allen County, Indiana (USGS 411228084541703 MET STATION WEST OF BULL RAPIDS RD NR HARLAN, IN). Meteorological and soil m

Meteorological data from edge-of-field sites in Michigan and Wisconsin, 2015-18

These data describe daily mean air temperature, soil temperature, soil-water (moisture) content, and solar radiation at two edge-of-field sites monitored as part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. These data were used to catalog the general range of conditions at each site in order to provide context for when sub-surface agricultural drainage (tile drains) is visible in remote-sensing imag

Measurements of velocity and bathymetry in the Ashtabula River near Ashtabula, Ohio, July 12–14, 2022

These data are depth-averaged velocities measured by an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP), as well as continuous depth-averaged velocities from a stationary location measured with an acoustic Doppler velocity meter (ADVM). These data were collected from the July 12-14, 2022, survey of the Ashtabula River near Ashtabula, Ohio. The location of the ADCP data are from approximately 1,500 feet u

Model data archive—Trends in Selected Environmental, Anthropogenic, and Water-Quality Characteristics in the Upper White River Basin, Indiana, 1991–2020

This archive contains input files used in regression analyses to estimate concentrations and flux of total phosphorus, nitrate plus nitrite, total Kjeldahl nitrogen, and total suspended solids at selected locations on the Upper White River and output files containing annual estimates of flux and mean daily concentrations.of those same constituents, along with their 90 percent prediction intervals.

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substance Concentrations, Age Estimates, Redox Categories, and Related Data for Groundwater from the Great Miami Buried-Valley Aquifer, Southwestern Ohio, 2019–20

This data release presents results of chemical analyses of groundwater sampled during summer and autumn of 2019 and spring of 2020 from 23 wells in the Great Miami buried-valley aquifer (GM-BVA) of southwestern Ohio. Groundwater and quality-control samples were analyzed to determine concentrations of selected per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Groundwater and related quality-control sampl

Datasets for Comparison of Surrogate Models to Estimate Pesticide Concentrations at Six U.S. Geological Survey National Water Quality Network Sites During Water Years 2013–2018

This data release is comprised of data tables of input variables for seawaveQ and surrogate models used to predict concentrations of select pesticides at six U.S. Geological Survey National Water Quality Network (NWQN) river sites (Fanno Creek at Durham, Oregon; White River at Hazleton, Indiana; Kansas River at DeSoto, Kansas; Little Arkansas River near Sedgwick, Kansas; Missouri River at Hermann,

Episodic Master Recession Model Output used for Recharge Estimation in a Rain Garden on Sandy Soil, Gary, Indiana, 2016-18

A rain garden and other stormwater control measures (SCM) were installed at Gary City Hall in Gary, Indiana to retain water, increase infiltration, and divert stormwater from city sewers. In order to investigate the impacts of the installed SCMs, hydrologic data were collected prior to and following the installation to estimate site water budgets (Lampe and others, 2022).
