Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program

Data and Tools

The Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program is an innovator in mapping, field studies, data collection, and laboratory analyses, whose expertise is sought by other governmental agencies, educational institutions, and private companies. In turn, we seek collaborative research and development opportunities with similar groups.

Mineralogy, rare earth elements, and strontium isotopic composition of phosphorites and phosphatized rocks from the Rio Grande Rise, south Atlantic Ocean

Phosphorites and phosphatized rocks from the summit of the Rio Grande Rise were collected via dredge during the oceanographic research cruise RGR1 to the western RGR. The location (latitude, longitude, depth), mineralogy, concentrations of phosphorus and rare earth elements, and 87Sr/86Sr ratios of phosphorites and phosphatized FeMn crusts, ironstones and carbonates from 10 dredge sites are...

Geophysical and core sample data collected offshore San Francisco, California, during field activity 2019-649-FA from 2019-10-11 to 2019-10-18

USGS collected geophysical and core sample data aboard R/V Bold Horizon in 2019 on cruise 2019-649-FA offshore San Francisco, California. The data were collected to assess sand and gravel resources in Federal and State waters for potential use in future beach nourishment projects along stretches of the coast where critical erosion hotspots have been identified. This cruise was funded through...

Nearshore groundwater seepage and geochemical data measured in 2015 at Guinea Creek, Rehoboth Bay, Delaware

 The U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Delaware measured rates of SGD and concentrations of dissolved constituents, including nitrogen species, from recirculating ultrasonic and manual seepage meters, and in nearshore groundwater, on the southern shore of Guinea Creek, an estuarine tributary of Rehoboth Bay, in Millsboro, Delaware, in June, August, and October of 2015.

Hydrodynamic and sediment transport model of San Pablo Bay, California, Nov-Dec 2014

A three-dimensional hydrodynamic and sediment transport model of San Pablo and Suisun Bays was constructed using the Delft3D4 modeling suite to simulate water levels, flow, waves, and suspended sediment for time period of 11/1-12/31, 2014. This data release describes the construction and validation of the model application and provides input files suitable to run the model on D3D software...

Vibracore CT scans from the San Lorenzo River

This data release contains information on computed tomography images of a vibracore that was collected in 2019. A site next to the San Lorenzo River in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, California, was cored to understand the history of recent vertical incision and floodplain abandonment. The core was split into 3 segments after collection. Each segment was scanned using a Geotek Rotating X-...

Hydrodynamic model of the San Francisco Bay and Delta, California

A 2-D hydrodynamic model of the San Francisco Bay and Delta was constructed using the Delft3D Flexible Mesh modeling suite to simulate water levels. Required model input files are provided to run the model for the time period from 10/1/18 to 3/30/19. This data release describes the construction and validation of the model application and provides input files suitable to run the model on...

Grain-Size Analysis Data From Sediment Samples in Support of Oceanographic and Water-Quality Measurements in the Nearshore Zone of Matanzas Inlet, Florida, 2018

 As part of the Cross-Shore and Inlets Processes project to improve our understanding of cross-shore processes that control sediment budgets, theUSGS deployed instrumented platforms at two sites near Matanzas Inlet between January 24 and April 13, 2018. Matanzas Inlet is a natural, unmaintained inlet on the Florida Atlantic coast that is well suited for study of inlet and cross-shore processes...
