Biology and Ecosystems Datasets
Mapping, Remote Sensing, and Geospatial Data
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.
14.86 km Profiles of the Electric and Self-potential Fields Measured in the Lower Guadalupe River Channel, Texas Interior Gulf Coastal Plain, September 2016
This data release consists of three geophysical data sets measured in the lower Guadalupe River channel, south-central Texas, and one supplementary geophysical data set measured in a laboratory.
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.

3DEP - FY16 BAA Project List
Dataset contains projected future wave-driven flooding depths on Roi-Namur Island on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands for a range of climate-change scenarios.
Water level and velocity measurements from the 2012 University of Western Australia Fringing Reef Experiment
This data release contains water level and velocity measurements from wave runup experiments performed in a laboratory flume setting.
Dataset for Reproductive success and contaminant associations in tree swallows (Tachnycineta bicolor) nesting in the U.S. and Binational Great Lakes' Areas of Concern
During 2010-2014, tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) reproductive success was monitored at 68 sites across all 5 Great Lakes, including 58 sites located within Great Lakes Areas of concern (AOCs) and 10 non-AOCs. Sample eggs were collected from tree swallow clutches and analyzed for contaminants
The National Digital Catalog, hosted on the USGS ScienceBase data infrastructure, serves as a repository for metadata describing geoscience assets preserved by USGS and state geological surveys. Web links, access instructions, and uploaded files provide direct access to the digital and physical resources for scientific investigations.
Measurements of metals, anions, dissolved organic carbon, and major cations in surface and pore water samples from mining impacted streams in the St. Francois draininge in Madison County, Missouri.
3D Elevation Program (3DEP) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) 2017 Awards
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.
