Discrete Carbonate System Parameter Measurements in Tampa Bay, Florida, USA

This dataset contains carbonate system data collected by scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center to investigate the effects of carbon cycling, coastal and ocean acidification on the Tampa Bay estuary located in west central Florida. Discrete seawater samples were collected along spatial transects at one to four hour intervals over 2...

Time Series of Autonomous Carbonate System Parameter Measurements in Tampa Bay, Florida, USA

This dataset contains carbonate system data collected by scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center to investigate the effects of carbon cycling, coastal and ocean acidification on the Tampa Bay estuary located in west central Florida, USA. These data were collected using an autonomous instrument called the Ocean Carbon System (OCS

Local radiocarbon reservoir age (ΔR) variability from the nearshore and open-ocean environments of the Florida Keys reef tract during the Holocene and associated U-series and radiocarbon data

Holocene-aged corals from reef cores collected throughout the Florida Keys reef tract (FKRT) were dated using a combination of U-series and radiocarbon techniques to quantify the millennial-scale variability in the local radiocarbon reservoir age (ΔR) of the shallow water environments of south Florida. ΔR provides a measure of the deviation of local radiocarbon concentrations of

Post-Hurricane Matthew coastal oblique aerial photographs collected from Port St. Lucie, Florida, to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, October 13–15, 2016

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducts baseline and storm-response photography missions to document and understand the changes in the vulnerability of the Nation's coasts to extreme storms. On October 13–15, 2016, the USGS conducted an oblique aerial photographic survey from Port St. Lucie, Florida, to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, aboard a Cessna 182 aircraft at an al

Wetland-Change Data Derived from Landsat Imagery, Assateague Island to Metompkin Island, Maryland and Virginia, 1984 to 2015

This data release includes geospatial datasets that were created to analyze wetland changes along the Virginia and Maryland Atlantic coasts between 1984 and 2015 as part of the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Barrier Island and Estuarine Wetland Physical Change Assessment. Wetland change was determined by assessing two metrics: wetland persistence and land-cover switching. Because seasonal...

DRASTIC and Attenuation Factor Model Results for Upper Floridan Aquifer Vulnerability to Bromacil and Ethylene Dibromide

Attenuation Factor (AF; Rao and others, 1985) and DRASTIC (Aller and others, 1987) models were developed for the Upper Floridan aquifer within the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) boundaries. The models were compared to assess the ability of each of these models to indicate the vulnerability of groundwater resources to contamination by Ethylene Dibromide and Bromacil...

Land-Cover Data Derived from Landsat Satellite Imagery, Assateague Island to Metompkin Island, Maryland and Virginia, 1985 and 2015

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release includes geospatial datasets that were created to analyze wetland changes along the Virginia and Maryland Atlantic coasts between 1984 and 2015. Wetland change was determined by assessing two metrics: wetland persistence and land-cover switching. Because seasonal water levels, beach width, and vegetation differences can affect change analy

Attenuation Factor model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to Bromacil and Ethylene Dibromide

This dataset includes Attenuation Factor (AF; Rao and others, 1985) model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to Bromacil and 1,2-Dibromoethane or Ethylene Dibromide (EDB). The AF value serves as an index for assessing the transport of pesticide mass from the vadose zone. The AF model setup requires the input of raster soil bulk density, soil organic carbon content,
