Howard Creek from White Sulphur Springs to Caldwell, West Virginia, Flood Map Files from June 2016

The mapped area boundary, flood inundation extents, and depth rasters were created to provide an estimated extent of flood inundation along the Howard Creek within the communities of White Sulphur Springs and Caldwell, West Virginia. These geospatial data include the following items: 1. howard_bnd; shapefile containing the polygon showing the mapped area boundary for the Howard Creek f

Fish and Benthic Macroinvertebrate Flow-Ecology Regression Summary Statistics for Virginia

Data provided from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) including simulated values of 72 hydrologic metrics, or indicators of hydrologic alteration (IHA), 37 fish metrics, and 64 benthic invertebrate metrics were reviewed to assess significant flow-ecology relations that may be developed. Hydrologic alteration was represented by simulation of streamflow record for

North Fork and South Fork Shenandoah River Habitat Maps

The layers within this geodataset describe physical habitat characteristics in the North and South Fork Shenandoah rivers. They represent conditions during summer low-flow periods when canoeing was possible.The data are derived from GPS field surveys and GIS editing to commplete habitat units around islands or river bends.

Beartrap Creek near Odanah, Wisconsin, Bad River Reservation Flood Map Files from July 2016

These polygon boundaries, inundation extents, and depth rasters were created to provide an extent of flood inundation along the Beartrap Creek within the community of Odanah, Wisconsin. The upstream and downstream reach extent is determined by the location of high-water marks, not extending the boundary far past the outermost high-water marks. In areas of uncertainty of flood extent, th

Borehole geologic-unit top-surface altitude and aquifer-component test data for the Piney Point aquifer, Virginia from 2009 through 2015

This USGS data release contains (1) geologic-unit top-surface altitudes in boreholes and (2) aquifer-test time-series water-level drawdowns, recoveries, and supporting data from the Piney Point aquifer in Virginia from 2009 through 2015. Extents, compositions, configurations, and geologic relations of six geologic units that compose the Piney Point aquifer were determined from g

Chesapeake Bay Nontidal Network 1985-2014: WRTDS Output Data

Nitrogen, phosphorus, and suspended-sediment loads, and changes in loads, in rivers across the Chesapeake Bay watershed have been calculated using monitoring data from the Chesapeake Bay Nontidal Network (NTN) stations for the period 1985 through 2014. Nutrient and suspended-sediment loads and changes in loads were determined by applying a weighted regression approach called WRTDS (
