Klamath Marsh January Through June Maximum Surface Water Extent, 1985-2021

The U.S. Geological Survey Oregon Water Science Center, in cooperation with The Klamath Tribes initiated a project to understand changes in surface-water prevalence of Klamath Marsh, Oregon and changes in groundwater levels within and surrounding the marsh. The initial phase of the study focused on developing datasets needed for future interpretive phases of the investigation. This data release do

Images and Identifications of Wild Bees Collected in Eastern Iowa, 2019

Bees were collected in 24 fields across eastern Iowa in summer 2019. This data collection was part of a pesticide study funded by the USGS Ecosystems Mission Area- Environmental Health Program. Bees were collected using the sweep net method and then were immediately placed on dry ice in the field. Bees were kept frozen to prevent degradation. In the lab, each wild bee was photographed from one or

Dissolved Gas Modeling Results for Groundwater Samples Collected in the Western Lake Michigan Drainages and Eastern Iowa Basins Study Areas of the United States: 2007, 2017

This data release contains the results from a study of the transport and transformation of nitrate in groundwater and streams across diverse glacial terranes within the Western Lake Michigan (WMIC) Drainages and Eastern Iowa (EIWA) Basins of the United States. The primary focus of the study was on how varying redox conditions influence the timing and delivery of nitrate to streams in agricultural

Wells and water levels used in the Columbia Plateau Regional Aquifer System Study, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington

These data describe the wells and groundwater level elevations compiled for the Columbia Plateau Regional Aquifer Study (CPRAS). The well data included are well ids used in the study, the X and Y coordinates of each well, in feet, in Washington State Plane South NAD 1983 coordinate system (zone 4602), land-surface elevation, in feet, of each well in North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88),

Model Archive Summary for acoustic derived suspended-sediment concentration at 14211720 Willamette River at Portland, OR

Model archive summary describing the development of an acoustic derived suspended sediment time series computation model. The model archive summary describes the methods and techniques used to develop the model for the Willamette River at Portland site - USGS site ID# 14211720. The time series suspended sediment data will help determine the suspended sediment concentration at the site in real-time

Water quality measurements in off-channel water bodies of the Willamette River near Albany and Keizer, OR (2017 and 2019)

The tabular data sets and associated maps in this data release represent water-quality data that were collected between April and November of 2017 and between July and November of 2019 to describe baseline conditions prior to or sometimes following treatments using herbicides or other methods to reduce the biomass of non-native water primrose (Ludwigia) within off-channel water bodies of the Willa

Uptake and bioaccumulation of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances in fish in the Columbia Slough, Portland, Oregon: 2019-2020

The Columbia Slough is located south and parallel to the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon and consists of approximately 19 miles of predominantly urbanized waterway that drains approximately 32,700 acres of land with industrial, commercial, residential, and agricultural uses. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are found in aqueous film forming foams (AFFF) used for firefighting, and soil

Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model (SELDM) model archive and instructions for the Siskiyou Pass, Oregon

Chloride deicers have been applied by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to Interstate-5 (I-5) from the Oregon-California border north to mile marker 10 for several years in the high-elevation area known as the Siskiyou Pass. Magnesium chloride (MgCl2) and sodium chloride (NaCl) are applied to keep the interstate safe for drivers and allow for efficient transport of goods and people th

Native and Non-Native Fish Species in the Willamette River Basin, Oregon

The Willamette River Basin, Oregon, supports native fish species and non-native fish species introduced for sport fisheries or accidentally from aquarium releases and other sources. Based on fish surveys completed from 1998 to 2018 by Oregon State University and records from the Oregon State University Ichthyology Collection, the Willamette River Basin has 34 native fish species found upstream of

Streamflow Drought Metrics for Select United States Geological Survey Streamgages for Three Different Time Periods from 1921 - 2020

This metadata record describes a series of datasets containing metrics used to characterize drought for four sets of United States Geological Survey (USGS) streamgages in the conterminous United States (CONUS) for three different time periods between 1921 and 2020 outlined below. The streamgages used are a subset based on the criteria used in Geospatial Attributes of Gages for Evaluating Streamflo

Geomorphic Mapping for the lower Middle Fork Willamette River, Oregon in 2018 and 2020

Since 2008, large-scale restoration programs have been implemented along the Willamette River, Oregon, to address historical losses of floodplain habitats for native fish. For much of the Willamette River floodplain, direct enhancement of floodplain habitats through restoration activities is needed because the underlying hydrologic, geomorphic, and vegetation processes that historically created an

Absorbance and fluorescence measurements and concentrations of disinfection by-products in source water and finished water in the McKenzie River Basin, Oregon: 2012-2014

This data release contains the results from a study that characterized the concentration and quality of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in the McKenzie River, a relatively pristine watershed in western Oregon, and its link to forming disinfection by-products (DBPs) in treated drinking water. The study aimed to identify the primary source(s) of DOC in source water for the Eugene Water and Electric B
