Application of the North Carolina Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model (SELDM) to Assess Potential Impacts of Highway Runoff

In 2013, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in partnership with the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) published a new national stormwater quality model called the Stochastic Empirical Loading Dilution Model (SELDM; Granato, 2013). The model is optimized for roadway projects but in theory can be applied to a broad range of development types.

Pre-computed mean January maximum and minimum temperature rasters from PRISM 1981-2010 from the conterminous United States, for the StreamStats Fire-Hydrology application 2021

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) computed rasters of pre-solved values for the watersheds draining to the pixel delineation point representing the watershed's mean maximum and minimum January temperature from PRISM 1981-2010 4km data (resampled to 30m resolution). These values will be served in the National StreamStats Fire-Hydrology application (https...

SPARROW Model Simulated Nutrient and Suspended Sediment Loads in Streams when All Forests are Urbanized Across the Southeastern United States

The U.S. Geological Survey's SPAtially Referenced Regression On Watershed attributes (SPARROW) for the Southeastern United States was used to simulate changes in total nitrogen, total phosphorus and suspended sediment load in streams under two scenarios: (1) where all forests are urbanized and (2) where all forests are urbanized and runoff is adjusted based on a non-forested landscape.

Coastal Salinity Index

The location of the freshwater–saltwater interface along the coast is an important factor in the ecological and socioeconomic dynamics of coastal communities. Salinity is a critical response variable that integrates hydrologic and coastal dynamics including sea level, tides, winds, precipitation, streamflow, and tropical storms.

Soil-Water-Balance (SWB) model data sets for the Greater Wake County area, North Carolina, 1990 - 2070

A Soil-Water-Balance (SWB) model was developed to estimate annual net infiltration below the root-zone for the Greater Wake County Area, North Carolina for the period 1981 through 2019 and project future estimates from 2020 through 2070. The model was developed as part of a study to assess groundwater availability in the fractured-rock aquifers underlying Wake County.

Associated data for the Triangle Area Water Supply Monitoring Project, North Carolina, October 2017 - September 2019

These datasets contain information used to compile the report (USGS OFR 2020-xxxx). It contains water-quality data, analytical results of field blanks, and analytical results for environmental and replicate sample sets for surface-water samples collected during water years 2018 and 2019 for the Triangle Area Water Supply Monitoring Program (TAWSMP).

Pesticide and Pharmaceutical Exposure Data for Select Streams within Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 2019

This dataset included the concentration results (in nanograms per liter) for 328 pharmaceutical and pesticide compounds analyzed within the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Tennessee and North Carolina, in 2019. Two samples were collected (July and September) at 15 locations within the park, and one location at the park boundary.

Indicators of Hydrologic Alteration in North Carolina Catchments

Alterations to stream hydrology, which includes changes in stream geomorphology, are primary impacts of anthropogenic disruption. In North Carolina, hydrological alterations lead to environmental impacts through degraded ecosystems and water quality.
