Chemical-Gene and Chemical-Pathway Interactions Predicted for Chemicals Detected in the USGS-USEPA National Streams Pilot Study Based on Effects Data in the Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD)

Data from study assessing the utility of knowledgebase-leveraging of comprehensive environmental-contaminant-exposure datasets by comparing biological effects predicted on the basis of target chemical analyses with measured biological effects in corresponding split water samples.

Model Input and Output for Hydrologic Simulations of the Southeastern United States for Historical and Future Conditions

This data release contains inputs for and outputs from hydrologic simulations of the southeastern U.S. using the Monthly Water Balance Model, the Precipitation Runoff Modeling System (PRMS), and statistically-based methods. These simulations were developed to provide estimates of water availability and statistics of streamflow for historical and potential future conditions for an area of...

Digital Surfaces of the bottom altitude and thickness of the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer and site data within the Mississippi Alluvial Plain project region

Bottom altitudes of the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (MRVA) were compiled from interpretations of subsurface geophysical logs (log picks) at about 10,000 boreholes and wells located throughout the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) that were available from previous investigations. Five sources of the bottom altitude data are listed numerically in the Cross Reference section (below)...

SPARROW model datasets for total nitrogen and total phosphorus in North Carolina, including simulated stream loads

To better understand the influence of human activities and natural processes on surface-water quality, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed the SPARROW (SPAtially Referenced Regressions On Watershed attributes) (Schwarz and others, 2006; Alexander and others, 2008) model. The framework is used to relate water-quality monitoring data to sources and watershed characteristics that affect...

SPARROW model dataset for total suspended solids in North Carolina, including simulated stream loads

To better understand the influence of human activities and natural processes on surface-water quality, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed the SPARROW (SPAtially Referenced Regressions On Watershed attributes) (Schwarz and others, 2006; Alexander and others, 2008) model.

Porosity, dry bulk density, and mass accumulation rates

Porosity, dry bulk density, and average mass accumulation rates, and estimated date of the mid-point of each sediment interval were determined for ten sediment cores retrieved from Lake Lanier in 2018. Physical properties of the sediment (porosity, dry bulk density) were used to help define the pre-reservoir surface and determine the average mass accumulation rate of sediment. This will help...

Lake Lanier Carbon, Nitrogen, totals and stable isotopes

Total carbon and nitrogen concentrations, and delta carbon-13 and delta nitrogen-15 stable isotope ratios, were determined in sediment samples to potentially identify the sources of organic matter in the sediment and any post-depositional diagenetic alteration of the organic matter over time.

Lake Lanier Cesium-137

Specific activities of cesium-137 in picoCuries per gram were determined for selected samples from the Lake Lanier cores. The laboratory standard deviation and the sample-specific reporting levels are included for each sample.

Concentration of chemical constituents in lake sediments from selected coring locations on Lake Lanier, Georgia, May 2018

The data herein were collected in support of a larger study in Gwinnett County, GA on the possible impacts of on-site waste water treatment (septic systems) on Lake Lanier water quality. Until recently, a missing component in this assessment was the inclusion of historical sediment and associated nutrient accumulation data from the lake to place results in a broader context. To this end, the...

North Carolina (NC) Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model (SELDM) summary statistics for physical and chemical data at NC highway-runoff and bridge-deck sites

The purpose of this USGS data release is to publish NC SELDM streamflow statistics and summary statistics of physical and chemical data in support of the information provided in the above-referenced report. This data release consists of two data sets, "NC SELDM streamflow statistics..." and "NC SELDM summary statistics for physical and chemical data...". The tables that are uploaded for the "...

Flood-inundation area for the Yellow River in Gwinnett County, Georgia from Stone Mountain Highway to Centerville Highway

The digital flood-inundation maps included in this data release were developed for a 16.4-mile reach of the Yellow River from 0.5-mile upstream of River Drive to Centerville Highway (Georgia State Route 124), Gwinnett County, Georgia (Ga.) to depict estimates of the areal extent and depth of flooding corresponding to selected water levels (stages) at two U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)...
