Storm event data in the control and test catchments during the calibration and treatment phase of a urban tree canopy study in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, from May 2018 through September 2020: U.S. Geological Survey data release

These data were collected as part of a study to assess the stormwater volume reduction capabilities of urban street trees. In this paired-catchment study rainfall-runoff relations were developed in a medium-density residential area before and after half of the street trees were removed from the treatment basin. The Supplementary_Event_Data set contains rainfall depth and intensity, event date and

Stormwater-quality data in the control and test catchments during the calibration and treatment phase of a leaf collection study in Madison, Fond du Lac, and Oshkosh, WI, from September 2016 through November 2019

The data set contains phosphorus and nitrogen concentrations and loads measured as part of a study to determine if, and by how much, removing leaves and other organic detritus from streets, through municipal leaf collection and street cleaning programs, could reduce nutrient contributions to local water bodies. Stormwater runoff was sampled in paired, medium-density, residential catchments during

Nitrate and chloride groundwater quality data, selected well construction characteristics, and aquifer assignments for wells in the Great Lakes Watershed, United States

This data release contains groundwater-quality data for nitrate and chloride, and well information for sample sites for aquifers in the Great Lakes Basin within the United States. Water-quality data and well information were derived from a dataset compiled from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Information System and numerous agencies and organizations at the state, regional, and lo

Carp Media Player

This product is a media player application and user guide. The application generates set-interval and random-interval media play schedules. When the application is used to execute the play schedule, it creates its own metadata documentation. The Carp Media Player documents the intended play schedule, generates a real-time log of the media played, and documents if there were any interruptions. This

SQL Code: Dwell time, concurrent tag contacts, and receiver bypass analysis of FishTracks telemetry data

Executing the Dwell Time analysis condenses receiver/tag records into readable records of fish movement and receiver effectiveness. Fish movement is described by a temporal sequence of receiver/tag events (durations), where a tag is visible to a specific receiver or collection of receivers. The number and frequency of contacts within a receiver/tag event are summarized by the analysis. A receiver

Receiver Sequencing Tool - ArcGIS Addin

This ArcGIS Add-In tool assigns telemetry receivers a “river address,” with the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) flowlines providing the river name (analogous to a street name in a postal address) and a distance along flowline (the house number in a postal address). Using this information, it is possible to sequence receivers along a flowline. Once sequenced, receiver data can then b

Field Evaluation of an Improved Solid TFM Formulation for Use in Treating Small Tributary Streams, data

This study builds upon work conducted under the Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC) Technical Assistance Program that was funded to prepare and evaluate an alternative solid formulation of the lampricide 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM) in a laboratory flume. The project aligns within the lampricide theme in the Sea Lamprey Research Program by improving lampricide performance, efficacy, and

Starved Rock navigation lock fish clearing hydroacoustic data, Illinois River (2020)

These datasets (e.g., 'Starved Rock fish clearing_multi-beam imaging sonar fish data_Pre-clearing_Sonar-s1.csv') include exported information (e.g., fish detection counts) from processed fixed-location multi-beam imaging sonar and mobile side-scan sonar data. Fish abundance in the navigation lock was determined using mobile side-scan surveys, while multi-beam imaging sonars were used to determine

Multi-species, multi-country analysis reveals North Americans are willing to pay for transborder migratory species conservation, code

Migratory species often provide ecosystem service benefits to people in one country while receiving habitat support in other countries. The multinational cooperation necessary to ensure continued provisioning of these benefits by migrational processes may be informed by understanding the benefits that people in different countries derive from migratory wildlife. We conducted stated preferences sur

Illinois River Substrate Characterization and Supporting Bathymetric Derivatives

Using high-resolution sonar technologies with geographic information systems (GIS) and object based image analysis, benthic characteristics of the Illinois River have been interpreted to support Asian carp research, monitoring, and control. The study plan consisted of data collection and analysis of the Brandon, Dresden, Starved Rock, Marseilles, Peoria, La Grange, and Alton reaches of the Illinoi

Concentrations of inorganic, organic, and microbial analytes from a national reconnaissance of wastewater from food, beverage, and feedstock facilities across the United States

This dataset contains results for treated wastewater samples collected at food processing facilities across the United States to characterize the potential contaminant profile of this type of wastewater. The associated report (Hubbard and others, 2021) can be found at https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.est.1c06821. Samples were analyzed by USGS laboratories using 10 target organic (576 unique analytes),
