Data and Tools

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.

2017 Known and Probable Grizzly Bear Mortalities in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

Identifying the locations and causes of grizzly bear mortality is another key component in understanding the dynamics of this population. Over 80% of all documented bear mortalities are human-caused. Tracking human-caused bear deaths helps define patterns and trends that can direct management programs designed to reduce bear mortality.

Marsh shorelines of the Massachusetts coast from 2013-14 topographic lidar data

The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) launched the Shoreline Change Project in 1989 to identify erosion-prone areas of the Massachusetts coast. This update included a marsh shoreline, which was defined to be the tonal difference between low- and high-marsh seen in ortho-photos. Further cooperation between CZM and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has resulted in another...

Water surface elevations recorded by submerged water level loggers in off-channel features of the middle and upper Willamette River, Oregon, Summer, 2016

Water surface elevations within seven Willamette River off-channel features were measured using submerged pressure transducers. Transducers were installed from late May through mid-October, 2016. These pressure transducer data sets were collected to characterize relationships between Willamette River discharges and water surface elevations in off-channel features.
