Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Water-Quality Measurements in Savannah River, Savannah, Georgia, 2018-2019

The Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP) began in January 2015 with the purpose of deepening the Savannah Harbor federal shipping channel to allow access to larger shipping vessels (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 2018a). There are various features and mitigation efforts to the SHEP, one of which is the installation of a dissolved-oxygen (DO) injection system at two locations along the...

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...

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.

Analytical results for the environmental and replicate sample sets collected from October 2015 through September 2017 at the Triangle Area Water Supply Monitoring Project study sites, North Carolina

The dataset contains the analytical results for environmental and quality-control replicate sample sets and the computed relative percent differences (RPD) greater than 25 percent for the data collected during the surface-water sampling for the Triangle Area Water Supply Monitoring Project. The data are from samples collected during October 2015 through September 2017. Several study sites...

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. The framework is used to relate water-quality monitoring data to sources and watershed characteristics that affect...
