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.

Stream-Gage Database Development and Network Analysis

The U.S. Geological Surveys Colorado Water Science Center is developing a geospatial database of stream-gage locations, stream-gaging data, and ancillary basin characteristics to facilitate transfer of information from gaged to ungaged basins within the SRLCC. The database will be made available through an accompanying web-mapping interface.

Data from Earthquake-Induced Landslide Hazards for a M7.0 Scenario Earthquake on the Hayward Fault

The seismic-landslide probability map covers the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, and Sonoma. The slope failures are triggered by a hypothetical earthquake with a moment magnitude of 7.0 occurring on April 18, 2018, at 4:18 p.m. on the Hayward Fault in the east bay part of California’s San Francisco Bay region.
