Probability of Streamflow Permanence (PROSPER) output rasters, 1989-2018, upper Missouri River Basin

The PROSPER output rasters represent the estimates of probability of annual streamflow permanence produced by the PRObability of Streamflow PERmanence (PROSPER) model, for years 1989 through 2018, in the upper Missouri River Basin of the United States. The PROSPER model is a raster-based empirical model with outputs representing probabilistic predictions of an unregulated and minimally impaired st

Water-Quality, Bed-Sediment, and Invertebrate Tissue Trace-Element Concentrations for Tributaries in the Clark Fork Basin, Montana, October 2019–September 2020

Water, bed sediment, and invertebrate tissue were sampled in streams from Butte to near Missoula, Montana, as part of a monitoring program in the Clark Fork Basin. The sampling program was completed by the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to characterize aquatic resources in the Clark Fork Basin and monitor trace elements associated with histori

Peak-flow frequency analyses for selected streamgages on tributaries of the Bighorn, Tongue, and Lower Yellowstone Rivers, based on data through water year 2021

The USGS Wyoming-Montana Water Science Center (WY–MT WSC) completed a report (Sando and McCarthy, 2018) documenting methods for peak-flow frequency analysis following implementation of the Bulletin 17C guidelines. The methods are used to provide estimates of peak-flow quantiles for 66.7-, 50-, 42.9-, 20-, 10-, 4-, 2-, 1-, 0.5-, and 0.2-percent annual exceedance probabilities (AEPs) for selected US

Water Resources of the Energy Development Area of the Williston Basin in Eastern Montana, Western North Dakota, and Northwest South Dakota

A set of comma-separated value tables containing data for streamflow, water quality, surface-water features, and produced waters in the energy development area of the Williston Basin in eastern Montana, western North Dakota, and northwest South Dakota.

Peak-flow frequency analyses for selected streamgages in and near the Milk River Basin, Montana, based on data through water year 2018, part 2

The USGS Wyoming-Montana Water Science Center (WY–MT WSC) completed a report (Sando and McCarthy, 2018) documenting methods for peak-flow frequency analysis following implementation of the Bulletin 17C guidelines. The methods are used to provide estimates of peak-flow quantiles for 66.7-, 50-, 42.9-, 20-, 10-, 4-, 2-, 1-, 0.5-, and 0.2-percent annual exceedance probabilities (AEPs) for selected st

Peak-flow frequency analyses for selected streamgages on the Bighorn, Tongue, and Lower Yellowstone Rivers and tributaries and Home Creek, Montana, based on data through water year 2021

The USGS Wyoming-Montana Water Science Center (WY–MT WSC) completed a report (Sando and McCarthy, 2018) documenting methods for peak-flow frequency analysis following implementation of the Bulletin 17C guidelines. The methods are used to provide estimates of peak-flow quantiles for 66.7-, 50-, 42.9-, 20-, 10-, 4-, 2-, 1-, 0.5-, and 0.2-percent annual exceedance probabilities (AEPs) for selected st

qPCR Results for An Assessment of Naegleria fowleri in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

In 2016, a multidisciplinary team from the U.S. Geological Survey Wyoming-Montana Water Science Center, National Park Service, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Montana State University’s Department of Microbiology and Immunology in cooperation with the Teton Conservation District, initiated a small study to document the presence or absence of Naegleria fowleri at several hot spr

Basin Characteristics and Streamflow Statistics for Selected Gages, Alaska, USA (ver. 2.0, September, 2022)

This data release documents the data used for the associated publication "Evaluating hydrologic region assignment techniques for ungaged watersheds in Alaska, USA" (Barnhart and others, 2022) The data sets within this release are stored in 14 files: (1) Streamflow observations and sites used. (2) Statistically estimated streamflow values computed for each site. (3) Streamflow statistics computed f

Water-Quality, Bed-Sediment, and Invertebrate Tissue Trace-Element Concentrations for Tributaries in the Clark Fork Basin, Montana, October 2018 - September 2019

Water, bed sediment, and biota were sampled in selected streams from Butte to near Missoula, Montana, as part of a monitoring program in the upper Clark Fork Basin of western Montana. The sampling program was led by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Historical simulated snowpack for the Lake Sherburne, MT watershed and vicinity, water years 1980-2019

Abstract This data release contains historical SnowModel (Liston and Elder, 2006) output for the Lake Sherburne, MT watershed and surrounding area. The two quantities simulated for this release were snow water equivalent depth (swed), the liquid water equivalent depth stored as snow in the simulation domain, and runoff (roff), which includes snowmelt at the snow-soil interface and rainfall on pixe

Reach-scale predicted annual streamflow permanence probabilities, predicted monthly mean stream temperature for August, and predicted monthly streamflow discharge for stream reaches in the Pacific Northwest, USA (2004-2015) (ver. 2.0, January 2023)

This dataset is a combination of annual Probability of Streamflow Permanence (PROSPER) predictions, Northwest Stream Temperature (NorWeST) predictions of monthly mean stream temperatures for August of each year, and predicted monthly streamflow discharge for stream reaches in the Pacific Northwest from the USGS database of natural monthly streamflow estimates, U.S., 2004-2015.
