Science Datasets

The data collected and the techniques used by USGS scientists should conform to or reference national and international standards and protocols if they exist and when they are relevant and appropriate. For datasets of a given type, and if national or international metadata standards exist, the data are indexed with metadata that facilitates access and integration.

Idealized Antecedent Topography Sensitivity Study: Initial Baseline and Modified Profiles Modeled with XBeach

Antecedent topography is an important aspect of coastal morphology when studying and forecasting coastal change hazards. The uncertainty in morphologic response of storm-impact models and their use in short-term hazard forecasting and decadal forecasting is important to account for when considering a coupled model framework. Mickey and others (2020) provided a methodology to investigate uncer...

Water temperature data from the Priest River, Idaho, 2018-2019

Water temperature data were collected in summer 2018 and 2019. Temperature data loggers were deployed in tributary confluences and the mainstem of the lower Priest River between Priest Lake Outlet Dam and the confluence with the Pend Oreille River. Data loggers were checked every 2 to 3 weeks throughout the summer. Data for Lagrangian longitudinal thermal profiles were obtained on August 21,...

Pebble Count Data for Delineation of Flood-Inundation Areas in Grapevine Canyon Near Scotty's Castle, Death Valley National Park, California

This comma-separated values (CSV) file includes the results of five Wohlman-style pebble counts (Wolman, 1954), collected in Grapevine Canyon near Scotty's Castle, Death Valley National Park, on March 2, 2017. Pebble counts were performed to determine the size of channel bed particles and evaluate channel roughness to be input into a one-dimensional hydraulic model.

Flood-Inundation Areas in Grapevine Canyon Near Scotty's Castle, Death Valley National Park, California

This polygon shapefile represents estimated flood-inundation areas in Grapevine Canyon near Scotty's Castle, Death Valley National Park. Estimates of the 4, 2, 1, 0.5, and 0.2 percent annual exceedance probability (AEP) flood streamflows (previously known as the 25, 50, 100, 250, and 500-year floods) were computed from regional flood regression equations. The estimated

Greater Sage-grouse Nest Site Source-Sink, Nevada and California 2019

Ranked index of model-projected nest site selection integrated with nesting productivity (i.e., nest survival), demonstrating the spatial distribution of adaptive vs. maladaptive habitat selection at each 30 m pixel. Hierarchical models of nest selection and survival were fit to landscape covariates within a Bayesian modeling framework in Nevada and California from 2009 through 2017 to de
