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)...

National Water Information System (NWIS) Mapper

The NWIS mapper provides access to over 1.5 million sites contained in the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS), including sites where current and historical surface-water, groundwater, springs, and atmospheric data has been collected. Users can search by site type, data type, site number, or place.

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)...

Geomorphological Features of North Carolina

For these three statewide datasets of North Carolina, information was extracted and post processed from lidar derived digital elevation models (DEMs) at 10 ft. and 30ft. resolution. Datasets are currently used for the project SPARROW Modeling for North Carolina Watersheds, but have the potential to be used in numerous applications. Slope area index (SAI), the ten most common geomorphons (i.e....

Positive Openness for North Carolina - 53 Huc 8's

Rasters of positive openness for the 53 hydrologic unit code (HUC) 8 watersheds in the state of North Carolina. Positive openness uses a line-of-sight approach to measure the surrounding eight zenith angles viewed above the landscape surface out to a specified distance. The central cells gets and average of the eight angles. An angle of 90 degrees would indicate a flat surface, while angles...

Flood-inundation areas and depths for the Withlacoochee River in Lowndes County, Georgia from Skipper Bridge Road to St. Augustine Road

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 12.6-mile reach of the Withlacoochee River from Skipper Bridge Road to St. Augustine Road, Lowndes County, Georgia, were created by the U.S. Geologicay Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the city of Valdosta and Lowndes County, Georgia. The inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science Web site at...

Mississippi Alluvial Plain Extent, November 2017

The Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) has become one of the most important agricultural regions in the US, and it relies heavily on a groundwater system that is poorly understood and shows signs of substantial change. The heavy use of the available groundwater resources has resulted in significant groundwater-level declines and reductions in base flow in streams within the MAP. These impacts...

Difficult Run field estimated floodplain and bank flux and toolbox geomorphic metrics for field sites

A cvs file containing field datasets used to develop regression models to predict sediment and nutrient retention services for streams within the Difficult Run watershed. Field measurements of floodplain deposition and bank erosion were provided in previously published datasets from Hupp et al. (2013) and Gellis et al. (2017). At each field site, 3-5 nearby cross sections from the Toolbox were...

Groundwater-Surface Water Interactions in Ellerbe Creek in Durham, North Carolina, 2016-2018

A hydrologic study involving the investigation of groundwater-surface water interactions along Ellerbe Creek, a major tributary to upper Falls Lake, was conducted in order to determine if groundwater is a likely source of nitrate input to the stream. Groundwater-surface water interactions were characterized by synoptic streamflow measurements, groundwater-level monitoring, hydrograph-...

Concentrations of Pesticides, Pharmaceuticals, Organic Waste Indicators, and Volatile Organic Chemical Contaminants and Their Predicted Effects Potential in Wadeable Southeastern USA Streams

This dataset presents the results of 475 unique organic compounds collected from 54 wadeable streams within the Southeastern, USA, collected within 10 weeks during 2014. Maximum and median exposure conditions were evaluated in relation to watershed characteristics and for potential biological effects. This dataset contains the summary statistics (maximum and median concentrations)of detected...
