Groundwater discharge areas for Antelope, Kobeh, and Monitor Valleys, Central Nevada, 1964

This dataset represents "phreatophyte areas" mapped as part of a groundwater reconnaissance effort in four valleys in central Nevada and published in 1964. The data were digitized for comparison with mapping of groundwater discharge areas done in 2011 as part of a groundwater study in these valleys published in 2016.

Evapotranspiration units for Dixie Valley, Churchill County, Nevada

This data set was created as part of a U.S. Geological Survey study, done in cooperation with Bureau of Reclamation. The intended uses of this data set include, but are not limited to, natural resource modeling, mapping, and visualization applications.

Temperature Normalized Enhanced Vegetation Index for Dixie Valley, Churchill County, Nevada

The Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) was calculated for 10 Landsat 5 Thematic mapper scenes and combined with brightness temperature in an effort to reduce confounding (high) EVI values resulting from forbes and cheat grass in sparsely vegetated areas, and biological soil crusts from bare soil to densely vegetated areas.

Land Cover Trends Data - 1973-2000

The U.S. Geological Survey Land Cover Trends Project is releasing a 1973–2000 time-series land-use/land-cover dataset for the conterminous United States. The dataset contains 5 dates of land-use/land-cover data for 2,688 sample blocks randomly selected within 84 ecological regions. The nominal dates of the land-use/land-cover maps are 1973, 1980, 1986, 1992, and 2000.

Geospatial Dataset of Agricultural Lands in the Upper Colorado River Basin, 2007 - 10

This dataset represents the extent and spatial distribution of irrigated agricultural lands in the Upper Colorado River Basin for 2007-10. The boundaries in this dataset were modified from data developed by state and local agencies in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.

Stream Nutrient Loads in the Pacific Northwest (2002)

This ASCII file contains the mean annual total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) loads predicted by the USGS SPARROW models developed for the Pacific Northwest and the relative contribution to those loads from different up-stream sources.These nutrient predictions can be joined to the NHDPlus v.2 hydrography (COMID), allowing users to perform additional analysis and create their own maps...

Data to Accompany the Regional Potentiometric-Surface Map of the Great Basin Carbonate and Alluvial Aquifer System in Snake Valley and Surrounding Areas, Juab, Millard, and Beaver Counties, Utah and White Pine and Lincoln Counties, Nevada

Water-level measurements from 190 wells were used to develop a potentiometric-surface map of the east-central portion of the regional Great Basin carbonate and alluvial aquifer system in and around Snake Valley, eastern Nevada and western Utah. The map area covers approximately 9,000 square miles in Juab, Millard, and Beaver Counties, Utah, and White Pine and Lincoln Counties, Nevada.

Three-dimensional hydrogeologic framework for the Great Basin carbonate and alluvial aquifer system of Nevada, Utah, and parts of adjacent states

This dataset was created in support of a study focusing on groundwater resources in the Great Basin carbonate and alluvial aquifer system (GBCAAS). The GBCAAS is a complex aquifer system comprised of both unconsolidated and bedrock formations covering an area of approximately 110,000 square miles. The aquifer system is situated in the eastern portion of the Great Basin Province of the western...
