Digital Elevation Model of Glen Canyon Prior to the Flooding of Lake Powell from Historic Topographic Surveys, Utah and Arizona

Development of a high-resolution digital elevation model (DEM) of the pre-Glen Canyon Dam topography in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Utah and Arizona was initiated to assist the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in its Lake Powell coring program in the fall of 2018 (https://www.usgs.gov/centers/ut-water/science/...

Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Geochemical Data: Star District, Utah

The Star District study area is located in the Star Mountain Range, approximately 50 miles north of Cedar City, Utah. The Star Range was historically mined for lead and silver beginning in the 1870s (Krahulec, 2018). The Star District samples can be spatially clustered into two groups: the first consists of samples closest to Topache Peak and the second consists of samples closest to Picacho...

Data Release for Dissolved Gas, Environmental Tracer Concentrations, and Lumped Parameter Modeling Results Used in Determination of Groundwater Mean Age and Age Distributions in the Glacial Aquifer System, Conterminous United States

This data release documents nine Microsoft Excel tables that contain data for understanding groundwater ages in the Glacial aquifer system. Results for the four sample networks (PAS, principal aquifer study; MSS, modeling support study; FPS, flow path study) are described by three tables each: dissolved gas modeling results, environmental tracer concentrations (tritium, tritiogenic helium-3,...

Baseflow estimation and hydroclimatic data input details for the Upper Rio Grande, 1980 to 2015

Understanding how changing climatic conditions affect streamflow volume and timing is critical for effective water management. In the Rio Grande Basin of the southwest U.S., decreasing snowpack, increasing minimum temperatures, and decreasing streamflow have been observed in recent decades, but the effects of hydroclimatic changes on baseflow, or groundwater discharge to streams, have not been...

Time-series water level and water quality data to accompany Scientific Investigations Report 2018-5040

This Data Release serves as a repository for a set of time-series data used in Scientific Investigations Report 2018-5040. The data represent continuous measurements of specific conductance, water temperature, and/or water level (stage), recorded by a variety of types of data loggers during three multi-day interference tests conducted on the Virgin River at Pah Tempe Springs during November...

Soil Methane and Combustible Gas Concentrations from Oil-Gas Well Pads in Utah, U.S.A.

Soil gas methane and combustible gas concentrations collected from oil and gas well pad locations in Utah. Soil gas samples were measured on site and/or collected for later analysis as described in supporting documentation. Multiple sample locations around well head and depths within the soil profile are available for select sites.

Geo-chemical Correction of Carbon-14 in Dissolved Inorganic Carbon used for Groundwater Age Dating in the Glacial Aquifer System, Conterminous United States

Data provided here describe geochemical correction of carbon-14 in dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) for groundwater age dating. Datasets include major ion chemistry of groundwater samples, model parameter inputs, and final corrected carbon-14 in DIC. Geochemical correction was completed in two phases: determination of reactive phase mole transfers through an inverse geochemical model (PHREEQC...

Potential contaminant sources and other landscape variables summarized for NHDPlus Version 2.1 catchments within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

This dataset consists of 262 variables which describe various known and suspected point and non-point sources of contaminants and endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Contaminant data was summarized to the NHDPlus Version 2.1 catchment level (1:100K). Contaminant data summarized span a time range of 2001 to 2016 and include regulated facilities,...
