SPARROW model inputs and simulated streamflow, nutrient and suspended-sediment loads in streams of the Southwestern United States, 2012 Base Year

The U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) SPAtially Referenced Regression On Watershed attributes (SPARROW) model was used to aid in the interpretation of monitoring data and simulate streamflow and water-quality conditions in streams across the Southwestern Region of the Unites States. SPARROW is a hybrid empirical/process-based mass balance model that can be used to estimate the major sou

Potential contaminant sources and other landscape variables summarized for NHDPlus Version 2.1 catchments within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed (ver. 1.1, March 2020)

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%

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
