Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown

Thanks for viewing this first version of the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Water Science Center Newsletter. I use this format a few times a year to highlight U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) activities and water-related science going on at the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Water Science Center (OKI WSC).
Crews from the U.S. Geological Survey have been in the field for weeks measuring flooding in the Midwest and in the Mississippi River watershed, and more recently flooding and storm tides on the Northern Atlantic coast, as higher temperatures, heavy rain, snowmelt and nor’easters affected numerous states.
The 6th annual USGS OH-KY-IN annual cooperator meeting was held on October 24 in Indiana and on October 26 in Kentucky. The partners in attendance represented federal, state, and local agenices, as well as universities that partner with US Geological Survey.
Welcome to the “Winter 2016” version of the IN-KY Newsletter. I use this format two to four times a year to highlight USGS activities and water-related science going on at the Indiana-Kentucky Water Science Center. I also take advantage of this opportunity to highlight some of our amazing scientists that work for the USGS.
The Indiana-Kentucky Water Science Center Hosted its annual cooperator/scientific workshop on October 5 for our Indiana Cooperators and Partners, and October 6 for the Kentucky Cooperators and Partners.
In March 1903, Professor G. E. Waes_che of Purdue University established several streamgaging stations near the University, with the Wabash RIver at Lafayette being one of those gages. In July of 1903, the USGS assumed the operation of the gage. The first recorded discharge measurement was in November of 1915. Measurements are still being made at the gage today. ...
Scientists were at work Wednesday afternoon at the city’s reforest- ed area north of the Wabash River near the White Bridge, and they were using a new tool in their quest for knowledge: A drone.
A U.S. Geological Survey streamgage, dormant since 2003, was recently reactivated in the city of Frankton, Indiana through a funding partnership with the Indiana Department of Transportation.
A new article, published in Harmful Algae, describes a study to predict cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms (cyanoHABs) at three Ohio recreational lake sites.
Two new streamgages recently installed by the U.S. Geological Survey in the cities of Greenfield and Elwood, Indiana will provide continuous, real-time streamflow and water level information in areas that have demonstrated a need for reliable flood warning and flood-related data.
