Remotely sensed data from a reach of the Sacramento River near Glenn, California, used to perform Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) within the Robot Operating System (ROS)

This data release provides an example data set to accompany the manuscript titled "A Robot Operating System (ROS) package for mapping flow fields in rivers via Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)", submitted to the journal Software X. This ROS *.bag file contains remotely sensed data acquired during an Uncrewed Aircraft System (UAS) flight along a reach of the Sacramento River near Glenn, California,

Hydrodynamic model output and image simulation code for evaluating image-based river velocimetry from a case study on the Sacramento River near Glenn, California

This data release includes the data and code used for the manuscript titled "A framework to facilitate development and testing of image-based river velocimetry algorithms", submitted to the journal Earth Surface Processes and Landforms. Three *.csv files and five *.m files with MATLAB source code are included below. Each *.csv file contains output from a hydrodynamic model of a reach of the Sacram

Stable hydrogen and oxygen isotopic compositions of precipitation samples from selected Colorado and Utah National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) sites

The stable hydrogen (delta 2H) and oxygen (delta 18O) isotopic compositions of more than 4,300 weekly composite samples of precipitation from thirteen National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) sites (CO02, CO08, CO09, CO10, CO21, CO89, CO91, CO92, CO93, CO96, CO97, CO98, and UT09) in Colorado and Utah were analyzed on archived samples obtained from NADP over various time periods between Janua

Stable hydrogen and oxygen isotopic compositions of precipitation samples from selected Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) sites

The stable hydrogen (delta 2H) and oxygen (delta 18O) isotopic compositions of more than 6,400 daily or weekly composite samples of precipitation from nine National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) sites (DE02, MD07, NJ99, NY67, NY68, PA00, PA15, PA72, and PA98) in New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania were analyzed on archived samples obtained from NADP over various time

Bathymetric and topographic surveys of the Upper Colorado River, May 13, 2021, to July 26, 2023

Bathymetric and topographic surveys were collected along an approximately 47-kilometer reach of the Colorado River beginning at the Pumphouse Recreation site and extending downstream to the USGS streamgage located near the Colorado River Road (Catamount) bridge. The surveys were collected using real-time kinematic Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers by USGS personnel during several

Field, laboratory, and third-party quality-control data associated with sites and analytes monitored by the USGS National Water Quality Network, October 2017 through September 2022

From October 2017 through September 2022, the National Water Quality Network (NWQN) monitored 110 surface-water river and stream sites and more than 1,800 groundwater wells for a large number of water-quality analytes, for which associated quality-control data and corresponding statistical summaries are included in this data release. The quality-control data—for samples that were collected in the

Hydrologic analysis of flow and transport for the Everglades DPM experiments

Flow and transport of sediment and phosphorus through the low-gradient wetlands of the Everglades, FL were characterized using hydrologic, biological, geomorphic, and biogeochemical data as inputs to several types of simulations. The data were collected in the DPM (Decompartmentalization Physical Model) experimental high-flow facility in the central Everglades, FL. The DPM includes wetlands, canal

Predictions and supporting data for network-wide 7-day ahead forecasts of water temperature in the Delaware River Basin

Daily maximum water temperature predictions in the Delaware River Basin (DRB) can inform decision makers who can use cold-water reservoir releases to maintain thermal habitat for sensitive fish species. This data release contains the forcings and outputs of 7-day ahead maximum water temperature forecasting models that makes predictions at 70 river reaches in the upper DRB. The modeling approach in

Inventory of water bottling facilities in the United States, 2023, and select water-use data, 1955-2022

An inventory of facilities that bottle water or other beverages containing water (including soft drinks, beer, wine, or spirits) or that manufacture ice was compiled by combining available datasets from multiple sources. This water bottling inventory dataset includes facilities within all 50 states of the United States, one federal district (Washington, District of Columbia), and three territories

Application of the National Hydrologic Model Infrastructure with the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (NHM-PRMS),1980-2016, Daymet Version 3 calibration

This data release contains inputs and outputs for hydrologic simulations of the conterminous United States (CONUS) using the National Hydrologic Model (NHM) application of the Precipitation Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) in ASCII and binary format and explanatory graphics in pdf format. These simulations were developed to provide estimates of water availability for historical conditions for the per

Water Quality and Molecular Data for Upper Klamath Lake, OR, 2016

Upper Klamath Lake, located in southern Oregon, is a hypereutrophic lake where cyanobacterial blooms, dominated by Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), occur every summer. The decay of excess biomass after AFA senescence leads to problematic water quality conditions including high pH ( > 9) and anoxia. Water samples from the photic zone and bottom of the water column, and the flocculation layer of the

Geochemistry and microbiology data collected to study the effects of oil and gas wastewater dumping on arid lands in New Mexico

The Permian Basin, straddling New Mexico and Texas, is one of the most productive oil and gas (OG) provinces in the United States. OG production yields large volumes of wastewater that contain elevated concentrations of major ions including salts (also referred to as brines), and trace organic and inorganic constituents. These OG wastewaters pose unknown environmental health risks, particularly in
